Aside from his numerous impressive remixes, Medasin has also displayed a talent for creating unique originals.

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…
