In January 2017, Nervous Records released “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. In 2016, Merachka was featured on “Don’t Waste Another Minute” which she co-produced & co-wrote with Terrence Parker for his June 2017 album release “GOD Loves’s Detroit” on Carl Craig’s Planet E label. Merachka also co-wrote & co-produced "BASSment Beats" from the same album which hit # 2 on the Traxsource Techno Top 100 chart, and "Just Like Muzik" also from the GOD Loves Detroit album. Merachka also released “Flash The Light” on Intangible Records which she co-produced & co-wrote with techno producer GunBee from Belgium (with remixes coming September 15, 2017).
In November 2014, 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 for 2014 and 2015 including Defected In The House Amsterdam 2014, Soul Heaven Miami 2015, and Defected Most Rated 2015. In addition, Merachka has produced and released a collection of Detroit Techno tracks entitled “Undergroov EP” released on Terrence Parker’s 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.
Merachka seeks to bring back the lost hidden corners of Detroit.
