Tokyo’s MEIRLIN Blasts Off with Electrifying “Spaceflight 2099”

Tokyo talent MEIRLIN is on a meteoric rise, and her latest single, “Spaceflight 2099,” on Revealed Recordings is proof positive. This isn’t your average techno track; it’s a genre-bending exploration that’s destined to ignite dance floors.

MEIRLIN isn’t afraid to push boundaries. Inspired by the soaring energy of Future Rave and the driving force of Bigroom Techno, she’s crafted a sound that’s both innovative and captivating. “Spaceflight 2099” is a sonic journey that clocks in at just under three minutes, but feels like a full-blown space odyssey.

From the opening seconds, the track is a thrill ride. A spoken intro and pulsating synths build anticipation, creating the feeling of scrambling to board a spaceship about to launch. Then, the Future Rave synths kick in, and we’re off. The drop explodes like a rocket achieving liftoff, transporting listeners through the cosmos at warp speed. The energy is infectious, guaranteed to get your heart racing.

But “Spaceflight 2099” isn’t just about high-octane adrenaline. The track cleverly weaves in moments of hypnotic melody, particularly in the arpeggiated synth section that follows the drop. This ebb and flow keeps the energy dynamic, ensuring the journey never gets monotonous.

MEIRLIN’s passion for the subject matter shines through. “I’ve always been captivated by space exploration,” she says. “I wanted to create a track that merged themes of space travel, fantasy, and the future, something that would truly energize the crowd. Close your eyes and imagine yourself soaring through the galaxy – that’s the feeling I wanted to capture.”

And captured it has been. The crowning achievement for “Spaceflight 2099” came when dance music legend Hardwell premiered the track during his history-making set at Ultra 2024. MEIRLIN describes witnessing the crowd’s electrifying reaction as an unforgettable moment. The energy in the stadium was undeniable, solidifying “Spaceflight 2099” as a contender for one of the year’s best tracks.

With a talent like MEIRLIN taking the scene by storm, the future of electronic music is looking bright. Buckle up and prepare for liftoff with “Spaceflight 2099” – it’s a journey you won’t want to miss.
