DJ Meri and P.Julm make up the production and DJ Duo. Originally paired together as the residents of
If you can find it on-line, their appearance on John
Digweeds KISS 100 show was excellent (
Notable in this mix is their use of great overlays, which are present from the very outset. There is a tribal vibe to this mix that has lots of energy without seeming hyperkinetic. They also maintain a strong bass line throughout the mix, but keep the track selection varied and very listenable.
However, the mix does not stay at the 128bpm range throughout. I particularly like how they have slowed down the mix in the last ten minutes of the mix with “Another New Day” by Jazzanova and “All Things to All Men” a jazzy rap number by The Cinimatic Orchestra with Roots Manuva.
This is an excellent single disc mix set and is a great precursor to their original release scheduled for 2005. This disc may be a little tough to find due to the limited production run by NRK records. However, if you find it, I’m sure you’ll agree that Rulers of the Deep are a DJ/Producer duo to keep an eye on in the next year or so.
