Grade A For The Melker Project
The Melker Project aka Scott Melker, is a producer based out of New York City. He’s been launching some big mash ups from the Big Apple and one of them comes in the form of Show Me Pound Cake.
He is KILLING it with thi strack. It’s slow mash up groove that reminds me of the throw back club days. Nothing crazy with seizure like strobe lights. Just a cool lounge groove. Perfect.
The Melker Project – Show Me Pound Cake Ft. Jay-Z, Ellie Goulding, Chris Brown & Kid Ink
“Pound Cake” has one of the hottest beats that I have heard in a long time. I was curious as to where they found the vocal sample, and was surprised to find out that it was Ellie Goulding. I found the original Ellie Goulding track, repitched it and chopped it up to match “Pound Cake,” and created a completely new beat. I did not actually sample Pound Cake at all, except for the Jay-Z vocal where he says “Cake, Cake, Cake.” After creating the new beat, I went in search of a vocal that would suit the track, and stumbled across “Show Me” by Kid Ink. I am actually not a big fan of the original track (or of Chris Brown, for obvious reason), but it seemed to work perfectly for me. So here it is – Show Me Pound Cake… I hope you like it!
I just want to give Scott some major props. He went above and beyond to create this great piece of art. He could have stopped at combining two tracks but he went the file mile to make sure all pieces were placed together with perfect.
And no kidding about Ellie’s part. I did a little bit of snooping and if you fast forward to the 0:20 second mark in the below track you will hear Ellie’s hypnotizing hymn.

Drake ft. Jay Z – Pound Cake / Paris Morton Music 2
Really not sure where Jay Z and Drake’s pound cake came in, but I’m not complaining.
Kid Ink feat. Chris Brown – Show Me (Explicit)
A pretty awesome track in itself. Made even better by Melker.
