Melvin started his dj career in 1995 as a regular guest dj in local clubs like Scala / Seven and various parties in his hometown Utrecht. Two years later, Melvin started as a resident DJ at the popular afterhours clubs Latido and Lexion in Zaandam.

In the same year, it was for the first time that he played alongside DJ Jean during his well-known Madhouse Friday night at the iT, Amsterdam. From then on, the career of DJ Melvin moved very fast; he started dj-ing regularly at the iT and sometimes played solo during the absence of the resident DJ’s. 1998 was the year that Melvin started playing at several clubs and parties all over Holland and Europe.
In the year 2003, Melvin became resident DJ of the new iT on Friday together with DJ Jean and E-Craig.
After being resident at the Waakzaamheid for one year, Melvin started producing with well established producers like Kenneth Heuvel (The House Negro) and Jas van Houten (Nether Man) for several labels like iT Records, Walnut and Rewind (Combined Forces) and Vinyl Inside (BPM Dance).

In the year 2001, he started producing with good friend and well-known producer
Richard van Schooneveld, better known as G-Spott. This cooperation would lead to the release of ‘L.O.I.S.’ a record released under his own name and dedicated to his 6-year-old daughter Lois, who also played a significant part in the video.

After ‘L.O.I.S’ reached a #1 position within 3 weeks in the Dutch Dance Charts, the single reached top 20 in the Dutch Singles Charts and the video could be found on high rotation play lists of TMF and The Box. Thanks to these successes, DJ Melvin became a respected producer next to his fame as a highly skilled club DJ.

The follow-up ‘Set u free’, went to the # 1 position of the Dance Charts, was the second highest entry in the Singles Charts and # 3 in the Dutch tip parade, it clearly followed the same pattern as ´L.O.I.S´!
His third DJ Melvin project, “Tragedy” featuring the vocals of Ivan William Perotti, is released on CD-single (supported by a video) in December 2003. This record receives already intensive plays from DJ José, Klubbheads, Jurgen, DJ Jean, Mark van Dale and many more…
As one of the resident DJ´s of the massively populair Dutch Crazyland parties, DJ Melvin was asked to compile and mix the new Crazyland compilation, in collaboration with Crazyland founder DJ Mike S. This CD filled with high quality house, grooves, tribal and techhouse has been released through
Mid-Town Records in September 2003.

Whereas DJ Melvin produces commercial singles, as Melvin Reese he shows his underground side and his love for pumping tribal grooves. Running the label Vinylized Recordings in collaboration with Mid-Town Records, he releases groovy tribal orientated tracks under his Melvin Reese guise. He also provides Melvin Reese remixes for this label.
Thanks to his remix for Luna Mora – A better day, this record was licensed to many compilations worldwide and will even be released on single in the United States!!
His debut release on Vinylized, “Bad Boy E.P.”, experienced a huge response from DJ´s all over the world (it was hammered by Carl Cox and Sander Kleinenberg amongst others…) and went straight to the #1 position of the Dutch Dance Charts within 4 weeks. The follow-up, “Strong resemblance E.P.”, reached the #2 position of those same Dance Charts!
