JFR – Morning Feelings [Secret Feelings]

8 min read

Secret Feelings opens the month of April with a new single from label boss JFR. Hailing from Argentina but currently calling Spain home, Juan Franco Rivero aka JFR has carved out a unique sonic identity in the world of progressive and organic house, resulting in a string of uniquely crafted records that present a resonant worldly sound. Enjoying a steady rise since emerging 2017, it was 2021 which proved to be a breakout year for JFR, as the Argentine continued his upward trajectory with a standout release for UK behemoth Anjunadeep; a project which would lead to offerings via Clubsonica and Musique de Lune across the next calendar year, and in turn garnering support from Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren and Sebastian Leger. 2023 would also bring newfound success for JFR, launching his Secret Feelings imprint in September with 'Anatonic', before ending the year with the critically acclaimed five-track showcase '21 Angels'. With January's 'The Last Queen' and February's 'Gocru' landing as JFR's first projects of 2024, the Barcelona resident continues to build his Secret Feeling imprint with a new single entitled 'Morning Feelings', alongside remixes from Mayro, Mauro Augugliaro and Gux Jimenez.

Beginning with the Original Mix, JFR manages to find a perfect balance between progressive and organic house. From it's swing heavy groove to panoramic arps and cross-cultural style themes there is a lot to like across it's seven-minute running time, but it's ultimately a great sense of flow and two very well-crafted breaks which make it such a great dancefloor track. The finer details also shine with a chanting style vocal stab and percolating acid line sitting gently below the surface adding further depth, charm and rhythm to what is an already stellar groove.

The first remix comes from Mauro Augugliaro who makes his label debut following remixes for AMITABHA and Stripped Digital. The Cordoba resident takes more of a pure progressive approach and extends the running time to a massive ten minutes, which makes for a very enjoyable listen. The main themes translate quite well and with a greater emphasis on percussion and overall atmospheric depth there are a lot of amazing moments locked inside, not the least of which is an expansive break with a nostalgic, pixie-like vibe to carry the track to an emotive finish.

Next up Mayro makes his label debut with a darker more stripped down take on the track which complements the previous two versions quite nicely. The Buenos Aires resident and Traful label boss goes for a groove-centric approach, while utilizing the main arp and a wide array of ominous effects for a what amounts to a foreboding journey into the depths of darker progressive house. The break, while somewhat sparse creates an amazing atmosphere through cinematic style pads and a subtle but highly tense build, one which precedes a stomping finale quite well.

Rounding out the release is Gux Jimenez who makes his label debut following excellent projects for aboriginal and Univack. The Colombian artist is well known for his melodic style of progressive house and it works amazing well with JFR's well crafted parts. Recently played by Nick Warren, Gux brings a backbone of tough kick drums and rolling rhythms to create a perfect foundation for a forest of ultrasonic effects and fuzzed out melodies for the ultimate energy-inducing rush to round out the release on a feel good note. Highly recommended.
