On Move Me II: The Present, Austin’s Mélat shows off her R&B croon, which glides on top of beats that are worn around the edges. She’s a young up-and-comer, but she already sounds well beyond her years. That’s apparent in her guest DJ set, which is an interesting mix of cutting-edge R&B, classic crooners, and Ethiopian jams she grew up with around the house. Hear Mélat’s My KUTX on Saturday, February 17, 6-7 p.m., or anytime at the bottom of the page.
