Welcome to the underground.
Melo is an audio-based social media app created to connect underground artists with listeners in a guaranteed fashion—think of it as a combination of TikTok and SoundCloud, where musicians post 30-second snippets to a TikTok-like feed, and listeners receive bite-sized chunks of really cool music from artists they've never heard of. If they like the snippet of a released song, they can stream it directly on any streaming platform.
So how does it really work?
Gone are the days where you have to act like a content creator just to go viral on social media. Melo is a "one-stop shop" for sharing your music and engaging with your fans; our algorithm ensures that we will find a quality, long-term audience for you. The best part? The only thing that matters is the quality of your music.
For Listeners and Fans:
In Melo, you can immerse yourself in your favorite up-and-coming artist's journey. Not only do you discover new music, but you can engage with the artist in new ways. The more you engage with artists, the more others will follow you for your music taste.
We look forward to changing the variety of problems that exist in the music industry, and with your help, we can make it a better place for everyone. Thank you for taking the time to join our community, and we hope you stick around to join this rapidly growing wave early!
Because we are at the earliest stages, we know that not everything will be perfect. Please give us any feedback so that we can make this the best possible platform for underground music.

Ratings and Reviews
Melo and why I love it!!!
Melo is a good app and as an underground artist myself (drxxco14 on all plats) I really apreciate this app. Only reason why I didnt rate it a 5 star was because of some quality of life changes.
One example is how his entire promo for the app is “tiktok brought to soundcloud” yet we still cant link our soundclouds or tiktok to our melo page. We also cant upload soundcloud songs
Another thing is how there isnt a dark mode or a dark blue (like twitter has) for the app. This is just personal preference but can make the app way cleaner and look better
Lastly on the topic of cleaner I would say try making the app look cleaner and less crowed with all the buttons
Other than that its a really good app and has the potential to be really impactful for underground artist and their career. Not to mention it already impacted many artist already such as Most Wanted and Jay Chris.
Great Idea, Not Great Execution
Love the idea and concept! It’s a really cool way to find new artists you might enjoy, and it isn’t as much sensory overload as TikTok/IG/etc. That being said, it needs some work from a programming and marketing perspective.
To say the app is buggy is an understatement. Uploading media to the app is kind of a nightmare, and notifications register about 20% of the time. Speaking of uploading media, an app that caters to enthusiasts of underground music, but has no option to upload WAV files makes zero sense to me. Connecting to servers takes way longer than it should as well. Needs some fine-tuning.
If you are a bedroom pop/rap/hiphop artist, you’ll find your audience on this app. If you literally do any other genre of music, there is no market for it. Much of what I find on the app sounds very similar to each other, and there isn’t so much an audience as there is a bunch of other musicians liking each other’s content. There is no way to reliably track metrics (I.e. who has actually seen what you post, how long they listened to the track), which can be hard to determine if your tracks are getting shown to anyone at all.
Love the idea and would happily endorse if the app worked better.
As an underground artist, it’s hard to get your music seen or heard by people. As long as this app is executed the right way I think by the end of the year this can be a great way for normal music listeners to find great music and artists they never would’ve found before the existence of this app, I also think it can be a great way for anyone in the music industry to make new connections. I’m very very excited for the future of this app
