Seems like every day there’s another remarkably young producer making high quality music. Sam Gellaitry, from Stirling, Scotland, released his first EP at the age of 18 and now two years on he brings his third instalment of the Escapism trilogy. Gellaitry genre hops between ambient, trip hop and glitch creating compositions which at times sound like sample-triggered freestyles.
I’d say Escapism III shows a development in his production ability; he sounds more confident and decisive in what he wants to create. Enter the EP via the dream sequence intro of ‘Jungle Waters’ and you’re off on a scintillating adventure of experimental electronica. A journey comprised of gorgeous sound design, harmonic layering and gripping grooves.
