Yo! Selector with Mafalda



Soulful sunshine sounds from inside the Melodies International DJ bag.

Yo! Selector take you into the deepest corners of your favourite DJ’s record bag.

From the weirdest bargain bin finds, to the juciest slow jams, rarest samples and stone-cold floor-emptiers, every DJ has his or her own individual approach to building a set. It’s these records that we’re setting out to discover and share with you.

After kicking things of with Moses Boyd, we’re back in Croatia courtesy of Dimensions Festival to get a peak into the record bag of soulful Portuguese selector Mafalda.

Co-running rare soul and disco reissue label Melodies International with Floating Points and working behind the counter as Cosmos Records, Mafalda has quickly built up a reputation for bringing genre-bending spiritual groove to the dancefloor, where she’ll happily drop Pharoah Sanders and Minnie Riperton in the same breathe.

Watch her Yo! Selector above, check out our in depth interview for Crate Diggers earlier this year and make sure you cop Melodies International’s latest release, the gospel-tinged Chicago soul of Gloria Jay.
