The two men have been in the leading front since the birth of Estonian dance music scene more than 15 years ago... DJ Meri (a former pianist) and P.Julm (one of the very first hiphop dj's in the country) come from a city hyped to be the best clubbing location in the world in 2005 by Financial Times - Tallinn.
Since 2000, releases on Defected ("Finally" and "At Night" remixes), Ovum ("Dirty Grooves"; "Elu On Mu Ilu"; "Track One"), NRK ("Last Survivor", "Nite:life 019"), Stealth ("Temptation"; "DJ's Calling"), Distance ("Tallinn Express EP") and many other labels have now been followed by launching their own imprint ROTD Recordings. Full-length debut album to be released early 2006 will demonstrate the distinctive sound of Rulers of the Deep.
Their blend of deep, tribal, tech-edged yet soulful house has become a trademark for the Estonian duo. Numerous original productions and loads of remixes have earned ROTD a spot in the spotlight of global dance music scene, hailed by likes of Roger Sanchez, King Britt, Josh Wink and Simon Dunmore.
Next to numerous remixes, ROTD latest releases include critically acclaimed "Last Survivor" on NRK , which is also featured on their debut album "Next Evolution" due out in April on ROTD Recordings. The first single "Every Night And Day" will be released in March.
You can catch Rulers of the Deep every week on their worldwide radio show "Tallinn-Express" on Estonian Raadio 2 (live and recorded on www.r2.ee).
