DJ Meri aka Cylon - One part of Rulers of the Deep
Like with most successful musicians, the road for DJ Meri has been a long one. At the age of five, he started to play piano which was followed by school bands of different kind. After getting his musical education and being a choir conductor, DJ Meri turned to radiobroadcasting. The first DJ Meri single for NRK, “Everything” was released shortly after the Nite:life series mix-cd compilation by Rulers of the Deep. DJ Meri started to use a new moniker Cylon to produce more technoish tracks. “Kit Cat” was released in 2005 by Honchos Music and is getting rave reviews all over. “Filled up high on a psychedelic mix of house and soul, Meri takes us on a twisting instrumental journey from spaced out electronica through to jacking keys.” (DJ Mag). After that came releases and remixes, such as Neil Quigley, Nick Muir “Feedback From the City” remix and Battlestar EP e.g. In 2009 Manchester Undeground Music released second EP- DJ Meri Presents Cylon - Sekontia EP, which also reached no 17 at Dj Mag Killer Downloads Charts.
. 2010 Audio Therapy Records - Neil Quigley and Cylon "Clear for Take Off".. etc..
When talking about Meri’s music or style, one has to understand, that although Meri is mostly known as a house music artist, that’s not the whole case. His roots are closely tied with techno and breakbeat, more often you can hear him play techno as Cylon.
