Welcome to the Utopia District Podcast! Today, we have a special guest who will take us on a funkadelic musical journey that will have you grooving in your seats. That’s right, we have none other than the Scottish future funk producer, Mélonade!

Not only is Mélonade a master of funk, but he’s also a game developer! He’s been busy cooking up a storm on Steam, and his indie game is set to blow your mind (if you like fishing!) We loved hearing about the inspiration behind the game and the challenges he faced in its development, as well as his new upcoming game for hoverboard/skateboard game!

With the sold out cassette for Mélonade’s latest album “From the Heart”, the vinyl is set to drop on April 14th, and let me tell you, it looks gorgeous! The vinyl release promises to transport you to a disco wonderland with its mesmerizing vibes. 

And while we’re on the topic of exciting developments, join us as we dive into the latest advancements from OpenAI, including updates on ChatGPT, Bing, and other interesting new developments!

But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s sit back, relax, and let the music take over. We’ll be listening to some of Mélonade’s latest tracks, as well as some other funky tracks, so put on your dancing shoes, turn up the volume, and let’s get grooving with Mélonade!
