Miss Melera is back in action on the influential Chapter 24, with a brand new and brilliant EP that features two great originals as well as Editions from Dave Seaman and Jonas Saalbach.
Miss Melera hails from Amsterdam and has been honing her craft over the last decade. She is a radio regular as well as a touring DJ who plays the finest clubs and festivals around Europe and the Americas. As well as this, she has proven her studio chops are slick and compelling and has released EPs on labels like Parquet and Einmusika before now.
Her first cut here is Magenta, a robust house roller with grumbling bass, dark atmospheres and icy hi hats rolling on top of the groove. It's a broody back room track with lush synths that subtly uplift the whole affair and keep you locked. Dave Seaman is one of the original pioneers of house music who has been smashing it recently with cuts on his own Selador, as well as Hive Audio, Suara and many other influential labels. His Edition of Magenta is much more wild and
freewheeling, with edgy synths rising up and up above turbulent drums and apocalyptic chords.
Miss Melera's next original is Mint, a deep and bubbly house cut with phased bass and scale riding pads that are spooky and eerie and suck you deep into a late night groove. Classy and well designed, it is another fine bit of work.
Jonas Saalbach is a young star who is making his second appearance on the label. He has recently put out an excellent full length on Einmusika and a fine EP on John Digweed's Bedrock. Here, he comes good once more. His Edition of Mint is spine-tingling and awash with gorgeously smooth pads and spangled synths. Soothing and calming yet driven, it closes out an essential EP.
