Rulers Of The Deep

Where: F-Hoone
When: 25.03.2011

The two men have been leading from the front since the birth of the Estonian dance music scene more than 15 years ago.DJ Meri, a former pianist, and P.Julm, one of the very first hip-hop DJ-s in the country, come from Tallinn, a city hyped to be the best clubbing location in the world in 2005 by the New York Times.
Rulers of the Deep carry a noticeable and unique sound. Although considered to be producers and DJ-s of house, both DJ Meri and P. Julm have explored musical areas quite far from the original territory of house music. Their sound can be deep, tribal, soulful and vocal, yet also full of breaks, dark vibes and tech edges. Since 2000, ROTD’s music has been released on Defected, OVUM Recordings, NRK, Stealth, Distance — and the list goes on. Rulers are the only artists in the global house music scene who have managed to work successfully on both the commercial and leftfield side of house music, from Josh Wink’s OVUM to Joey Negro and Louie Vega.
