Meraki is one of San Francisco’s most beloved drum ‘n bass DJs. Featured at SF’s biggest of events, including the vastly popular Outlet, End Up, Imagine and So Stoked monthly events, the bay area badman is well-known at Best Drum & Bass, for reviewing some of the best releases and speaking to the scene’s most prolific artists, He has even stepped in for our Chief Drum & Bass Officer, Bad Syntax to host Current Value on the weekly podcast. The man has come forth with his first remix on Vudeux Records, remixing Forsaken Shadow‘s “The Gods of Voodoo.”
Dark and grimey, Meraki takes the original and twists it on its head. The intro slows down to a slow build, and within moments, explodes into a dancefloor-style neurofunk-laced drop. Ravey stabs entertain the funk, as each layer steadily builds. Bring the break, and the dance crew inside can finally stop and take a deep breath. Not for long though, as the build comes back around, dropping into a frenzy once more.
No matter where you drop this into a mix, it’s sure to set the dance on fire
