Notable releases include Nervous Records’ “Acid Overlook”; a track by the Detroit Techno group Ataxia which features collaborative remixes by Merachka & Terrence Parker for which Merachka also wrote lyrics and is the featured vocalist. Merachka was featured on “Don’t Waste Another Minute” which she co-produced & co-wrote with Terrence Parker for his album release “GOD Loves’s Detroit” on Carl Craig’s Planet E label (2019 remixes coming soon). Merachka also released “Flash The Light” on Intangible Records which she co-produced & co-wrote with techno producer GunBee from Belgium.
London based Defected Records released “Open Up Your Spirit” featuring Merachka as the song’s lyrical writer, vocalist, and remixer for this lead single from Terrence Parker’s “Life On The Back 9” expanded version. This critically acclaimed single helped drive the album to the number 1 spot on the Traxsource Top 100 Album Sales Chart within 1 week of its release. “Open Up Your Spirit” is one of the featured tracks on the “Life On The Back 9” original album release by Carl Craig’s Planet E label in Detroit, and appears on several UK Top 20 Dance Chart compilations including Defected In The House Amsterdam, Soul Heaven Miami, and Defected Most Rated. In addition, Merachka has produced and released a collection of Detroit Techno tracks entitled “Undergroov EP” released on Intangible Records, and has a remix of Kelly Gunn (Jarmon)’s “GOD HE Is” which also appears on the “Life On The Back 9” Defected album release.
With several new releases coming in 2019, Merachka seeks to bring back the lost hidden corners of Detroit.
