Medasin Shines On Must Hear, Dreamy New 9-Track Album 'Irene'

Irene medasin

Since first introduced to TSIS in early 2016, Dallas producer Medasin has quickly become one of the most sought-after producers in electronic music. His ability to re-imagine other artist’s work into a fresh idea is unparalleled; An ability that has landed him official remixes for the likes of DJ Khaled and Portugal. The Man. Aside from his numerous impressive remixes, Medasin has also displayed a talent for creating unique originals. Previous singles such as “Daydream” and “Forever”, his collaborative track with EKALI, showcase the rising producer’s unique vision.

Today is a big day for Medasin as he dropped his highly anticipated Irene album; His debut solo packaged offering (He released The Pink Polo EP in 2016 with Masego - absolutely worth the listen). This album is not the first appearance of the Irene project. In January, Medasin uploaded a half-an-hour mix to SoundCloud titled ‘Irene’. He took to twitter to announce the project and stated “…a lot of these tracks have vocals that are being worked on for the later more official project. I removed all of the vocals cause I wanted this to be solely Medasin instrumental experience.” Well, the ‘more official’ project is here in all of its’ glory, and it is everything we could have hope for… 

Composed of nine tracks, Irene is dreamy and innovative. Two of the cuts received proper vocal features; “Work For You” with Kaz Moon and “Tired” with, the always reliable, Sophie Meiers. Built upon his buoyant sound with inviting synths and standout percussion, Irene is a testament of Medasin’s highly developed production capabilities and a foretell of his forthcoming success. Enjoy!

Rufus Du Sol Deliver Incredible New Indie Electronic Single "Underwater"

rufus du sol

Beloved Aussie trio RÜFÜS DU SOL return today with their new single “Underwater”. This release follows “No Place”, which dropped in May and was their first single after a long hiatus. During that hiatus, the RÜFÜS boys were working on their anticipated third studio album, on which “Underwater” and “No Place” are to be included. This latest release is a tasteful follow-up track to “No Place”, as it is an artistic and melancholic record; In contrast to the preceding more playful and uplifting atmosphere.

“Underwater” starts with a perpetual synth, a cultured vocal chant and Tyrone Lindqvist’s engaging vocal accompaniment. Gaining momentum with powerful brass-like hits, the track gets carried into a relatable kick-snare pattern that grounds the listener. Eventually climaxing with an engraving chorus, “Underwater” showcases RÜFÜS DU SOL’s ability to connect with their listeners in various fashions. We actually heard this track performed at Electric Forest back in June, and we were able to capture a pretty solid video… Check it out below. Enjoy!

Today, we have the pleasure of premiering Nebbra’s latest single ‘LOV’ featuring Berlin based singer HYM. The rising French producer was first introduced to the site back in 2016 with his track “You”; the first ever release via Zeds Dead’s Deadbeats label. Since, he has toured with Zeds Dead and other major acts such as Whethan and TroyBoi. Now today, he has dropped his uniquely laidback single ‘LOV’ which we are certainly excited to support.

The song starts with abrasive synth chords and hand-claps, both of which eventually get carried by big drums and HYM’s airy vocal melody. Nebbra then introduces a deep bassline, priming the track with an undeniably danceable energy. ‘LOV’ climaxes with all of the elements converging atop an infectious chorus. Another great showing from the always talented Nebbra… Enjoy!
