Irene spews positivity, is experimental at its core, and marks the debut of the extremely creative DJ Grant Nelson, aka Medasin, back in 2018. The top 3 on this album (Work For You, Ramen, and Home) are all playlist-worthy works of art. Go frolicking in a field of daisies or plant yourself on your couch and stare at a wall to properly enjoy this one. You could call this a ‘sauna’ album where you go in one side all stressed and exhausted then come out the other side a changed, refreshed human.
Who is this Irene? Turns out Irene is a real person and Irene is the reason we even have Medasin’s music today. According to EDM.com, Irene was Nelson’s outpatient program counselor at Access Counseling Group where he would seek help as he was struggling with mental health and drug issues in his mid-teens. Medasin is quoted in the article saying, “Irene might as well be considered a collaborator on this, because if I had not simply crossed paths with her, my progress wouldn’t have been set into motion.” You never know where the inspiration for your next project might come! Thank you Irene & Medasin.
