Like most successful musicians, DJ Meri — one half of the Rulers of the Deep — has travelled a long road. At the age of five he started to play piano, which was followed by school bands of different kind. After getting his musical education as a choir conductor, DJ Meri turned to radio broadcasting. Today, Meri hosts a weekly Saturday show called Tallinn Express with his production and DJ partner P. Julm at the most popular station in Estonia, Raadio 2.
Meri started producing in the late '90s. The first single with his partner P. Julm as Rulers of the Deep was released on Josh Wink’s OVUM Recordings. At the same time Meri started his solo career, remixing tracks like “Finally” (Kings of Tomorrow) and the chart-topping “Sleep Talk” (ATFC). In 2005 he started using the new moniker Cylon to produce more techno-ish tracks. The first track from Cylon, “Kit Cat”, was released by Honchos Music and got rave reviews from 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)
