Influenced by producers with unorthodox approaches such as Burial and J Dilla, blossoming Norwegian DJ/ producer Meera may be young in her career, but she is already capturing the attention of some of the scene’s biggest names. Following the release of her debut single ‘Music For Humans’, supported by both Black Coffee and Damian Lazarus, who she recently joined at Hï in Ibiza at the start of August, she now heads to Crosstown Rebels’ sister imprint Rebellion for the very first time as she unveils 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.
Armed with brooding basslines beneath sweeping synths and rumbling percussion, ‘Telefon’ balances commanding core elements with sprinklings of light, hazy and wistful melodies for a hypnotic cut loaded with suspense and energy – all while stuttered vocals exploring the frustrations of being disconnected to others ebb and flow amongst the mix. In contrast, ‘Slowdown’ is more off-kilter initially, with Meera’s own vocals again guiding the scattered bass hits before slowly transitioning into a resonant production guided by airy, emotive keys and bright leads.
Meera ‘Telefon’ EP drops via Rebellion on 1st September 2023.
