Our first premiere of the week comes from Galway based DJ & producer MEJMI. The budding producer has recently released a 3 track EP which is focussed on the textured side of minimal techno, as MEJMI finds solace in off kilter rhythms, funky sequences and alien soundscapes.
Galway based MEJMI is originally trained in classical music, but she has been making a name for herself recently as she’s moved her musical prowess into a the darker territories of minimalistic techno. Her distinct 90’s inspired sound draws influence from acid to rave and is focussed on paying respect to the routes on dance music culture.
MEJMI has garnered a solid reputation for rocking dancefloors in recent times. The young DJ has recently found herself playing on the Polish circuit on both a club and festival level. She has headlined at the slutty virgin festival and K-fest in Kerry and made appearances country wide playing for Cheek Eire, Blue Print Festival, Kriptik , 3ip.ka, Prospekt, Dv8, as well as more gigs forthcoming.
MEJMI’s three track contribution to Faoi Thalamh Records is steeped in deep sea excursions, as MEJMI manages to capture aquarian soundscapes through polyrhythmic sequences and off-kilter rhythms. ‘Skrzyczne’ poses at the most dance-floor friendly track out of the lot, as hypnotising synths glide around the syncopated grooves. Jarring synth lines seem to ripple and melt throughout the track, as dynamic 900 grooves stir intensity, agitated metallic hits leave listeners feeling somewhat on edge, and most certainly unhinged. This is a big tip for fans of Stanislav Tolckachev, Lewis Fautzi & more.
