Who Am I Listening To: Medasin

Don’t you just love it when you stumble upon music that you just instantly fall in love with from the moment you press play.

If you want that feeling… say hello to Medasin, guaranteed to make you feel mighty fine with his endless creative production which has already amassed over 85 million streams.

Grant Nelson, better known as Medasin, enters the world of electronic music production from his perspective, experimenting across various sound palettes.

Drawn to music at quite a young age, from the age of twelve, Medasin began exploring electronic music and eventually began promoting some of his tunes through good old, Myspace.

Back in 2018, Medasin released his debut project, ‘Irene’ which captivated listeners with its refreshingly unique yet personal tunes and even nabbed the top spots on the iTunes Electronic chart.

In fact, ‘Irene’ marks a culmination of three years of hard work and with its nine tracks, encapsulates his impeccable artistry and ability to think outside the box.

But there’s actually something really special about this album, as it delves into his experience overcoming drug addiction and how ‘Irene’ helped him see a future where he could shift his energies into his creative passions and making something beautiful.

Alongside the album, he jetted out on his debut US headline tour which resulted in him selling out a majority of shows.

Arguably, what really propelled Medasin over the years is his combination of original tunes and quality remixes which have allowed him to acquire a mighty following.

He’s even earned spots at prominent music festivals back in the day, like Lollapalooza, Electric Forest, HARD Summer, Summerfest and more.

Medasin’s epic catalogue of remixes is pretty impressive ranging from Portugal The Man, DJ Khaled, Martin Garrix and Schoolboy Q, plus more. Ya gal recommends his remix of Portugal The Man’s, ‘Feel It Still’.

If there’s one remix in particular that ya gal is seriously digging’ right now, it’s Medasin’s remix of ‘Wild Thoughts’ by DJ Khaled, Rihanna and Bryson Tiller.

No wonder ya gal fell in love with this remix, as it’s already amassed over three million listens on Spotify and was hovering at the top of the charts throughout 2017 summer period.

His latest project, ‘RIPPLS’ only dropped this year and is straight fire. This is really the perfect addition to your summer playlist with its electro, percussive yet hip hop infused beats you can just vibe with all summer long.

Here are ya gal’s top three bops from the album.
