Remember this name:
For, as the past few decades have shown, when it comes to dance music, the world follows Holland’s lead. And right now, no new star shines as bright as our own Miss Melera.
For the past decade, the Amsterdam-based Miss Melera has been perfecting her art, and developing mixing skills that have already been compared to legends such as Sasha and John Digweed. She’s done her homework, absorbing the essence behind traditional genres such as progressive, deep and tech house and old-school techno, and then twisting them into a melodic confection that is both fresh and timeless, and completely her own.
A triple threat, Miss Melera is as at home in the studio as she is on the airwaves, in the DJ booth at an underground club, or on the stage of an outdoor massive. In the past year, she has played increasingly high profile dates in India, the Americas, including Canada, the US, and Columbia, and, of course, Berlin. Her monthly radio show on soundcloud, Colourizon, is increasingly popular, and her fast-growing fan base is embrasing her second release, Faith.
Faith, which follows last year’s Stare/Stunning, is a three-song EP including the title track, “Fearless,” and an Einmusik remix of “Faith.” As Miss Melera has always regarded Einmusik as a great inspiration, she is particularly honored to be able to include it on the release, and do so on Einmusika Recordings.
This record, which Thump calls “dark tech house at its finest,” and her upcoming tour will give a global audience a chance to experience what savvy music lovers in Miami, Berlin, and Amsterdam already have. As they will tell you, when you’re under Miss Melera’s spell, you won’t stop moving.
Consider yourself warned.
