It has been a monumental year for Norwegian DJ/producer Meera. Her distinctive sound of unconventional house beats merging futuristic Afro and Latin rhythms, reflect her new and diverse taste that feels like a journey through roots and a bold experiment with sound. Following the release of her debut single ‘Music For Humans’, supported by both Damian Lazarus and Black Coffee, Meera now heads to Crosstown Rebels’ sister imprint Rebellion unveiling two fresh productions across ‘Telefon’.
“‘Telefon’ started as me procrastinating on another track, but grew into its own thing throughout the day and was a finished track by the second day. The entire process is kind of a blur, everything just came together. ‘Slowdown’ was my first attempt at using my own vocals on a track, as well as something more melodic and dreamy rather than a ‘club banger’. The track was very inspired by the vibe of a certain Burning Man set.” – Meera
Our favourite track from this release, ‘Slowdown’ grasps the hand of the listener and seductively guides them on a lustrous and exciting musical expedition. In precisely seven minutes and thirty-four seconds Meera successfully moves the listener through a universe of auditory splendour, with each segment of the track emanating different sensations that work harmoniously together in a new and exciting way.
The first two minutes of the track lock the listener into a hypnotic, distinctive sounding rhythm, reminiscent of the futuristic Afro sounds that Black Coffee uses to create suspense, sexiness and excitement into his nights at Hï Ibiza. Meera’s vocals then seductively seep in with a reverberated loop exuding the perfect balance of eeriness and mystery, accompanied by a dark scattered baseline that morphs and twists into an airy, melodic sound with emotive keys and bright leads.
This track transports you to blissful sunrise moments on dance floors of the past that have been locked away in your memory. The kind of nights full of connection and soul-stirring sounds.
