Fresen & Mental Order – Sirens [Juicebox Music]

8 min read

Fresen & Mental Order debut on Praveen Achary's Juicebox Music with 'Sirens'. The Colombian duo have been sometime studio partners since first collaborating on their Droid9 EP 'Nabuco'. Perhaps most notable however is Fresen's 'Bonk' EP courtesy of Steyoyoke's Inner Symphony imprint where Mental Order featured as a remixer. Now building on that creative synergy the duo land on Juicebox Music with a new single alongside remixes from Simos Tagias and Gux Jimenez.

Clean and serene, 'Sirens' is a vocal led piece with an abundance of charming qualities. Beginning with meaty kicks, the warmth of piece slowly engulfs you, as a fluid low end moves through emotive chord changes, while soulful instruction and a tranquil arp overlay the framework. Teased gently across the first act is a pixie like vocal motif, foreshadowing what is a truly gorgeous break. All the elements come together beautifully here; tastefully restrained the vocals play off the waning motifs and rumbling low end, before smoothly seguing into a purring finale.

The first interpretation of 'Sirens' is provided by Simos Tagias who returns to the label following his remix of Ziger's 'Razor' from November of 2015. The Greek artist has been one of his country’s brightest stars in progressive house with a discography that features releases on Hernan Cattaneo’s Sudbeat Music, Movement Recordings, Proton Music and Sound Avenue. Now fresh off new music for Beatfreak Recordings, Dopamine Music and Eat My Hat, Simos lands back on Juicebox with a powerful rendition of 'Sirens'. Of late the Athens resident has been focusing on the more techno inspired spectrum of progressive house. That sentiment holds true on his 'Sirens' interpretation with muscular beats, pulsating rhythms and a healthy dose of astral effects. Decidedly tough, the percussion comes in waves, adding a choppy cadence which works beautifully with the robust low end. The soulful lead elements (along with the vocal) get utilized nicely, adding more of a mystical charm whereas in the original they perhaps come off more emotional. This has a massive presence and should serve the darker dance floors quite nicely.

Rounding out the release and providing the second and final interpretation of 'Sirens' is Gux Jimenez. The Colombian artist lays claim to releases on Balkan Connection, Clubsonica Records, Droid9 and Antrim's Or Two Strangers imprint. His emotive creations have also found favour with some of the world’s most highly regarded DJs, most notably Above & Beyond and Armin Van Buuren. Now debuting on Juicebox Music, the Cartagena resident delivers a gorgeous take on 'Sirens'. Beginning with a buoyant kick and galloping groove, the Colombian artist slowly works in mystical themes and cosmic effects. Rolling rhythms and bubbly arps only enhance its electric nature, perfectly transitioning into the main break, where the vocals pull at your heartstrings just enough to set up a meditative final act. A stunning interpretatoin from Gux who continues to rise out of Colombia's burgeoning progressive underground. I'd not heard of Fresen & Mental Order before but they too provide further evidence of Colombia's rising talent and with Juicebox Music having their finger on the pulse of all that is new and fresh it's no surprise to see them land here with a such a gorgeous cut. Highly recommended.
