melino’s rich history in the music industry dates back more than 20 years.
Music producer and founder, Sebastian Wolter first uses the name as a pseudonym for a dance project in the early 90s.
Over the following years, melino evolves into a successful music production company and eventually its own label, called Uptunes. Many international successes and collaborations with renown labels worldwide follow.
Throughout the years, it becomes apparent that labels only work efficiently after they have reached a certain size and that the administration needs be automated to allow room for creative work. Based on this acknowledgement, Sebastian decides to develop a software in 2011 that encompasses all aspects of a label and centrally manages it: core db.
After more than a year of development, Sebastian surprises the industry with his novel service, label management. Instead of booking individual services, labels and producers can pass along all business areas into professional hands.
In 2013, the team moves into the betahaus in Berlin to be inspired by the creativity and energy to continue expanding their services.
Sebastian started his career in the early 90s as a House DJ.
