Fid Mella - Tatas Plottn

„Tata’s Plottn“ is South Tyrol slang for „Dad’s Records“. Fid Mella produced the records over the last two years in his home-town Meran. Whenever he was visiting his family, he headed straight to his father’s records collection and chopped beats on the spot. Mella’s father was a serious prog-rock head which you can easily tell when listening to this record. Have a listen to the album, and the free track „Henny“ below. Bag the album physical at HHV or digital on iTunes. Go here to stream 2012 released Brenk and Fid Mella’s „Hi​-​Hat Club Vol. 4 – Chop Shop“.
