sam gellaitry, escapism, okayfuture, soultronica

Following in his footsteps of the heavy and lush “Temple” and “To Earth and Back” off his Soulection EP Short StoriesSam Gellaitry‘s sound exists in an extremely unique space of composition that eclipses a majority of producers making “beats” and “tracks”. Layered anatomy of complex music is in place and tunes stand on their own foundation, full-bodied and not requiring any traditional vocal verses, hooks and the like. There are only a few other producers: Hudson Mohawk/TNGHT, Esta, B.Lewis, Djemba Djemba that pop to mind presenting the same ability to reside in this zone. Did we mention, he’s YOUNG. Like, 18 years young? And a ginger from Scotland too. We didn’t miss the fact that the three central tracks flow from one to the next in seamless genius on Escapism, Sam. Please keep in this realm before the night-club circuit steals you away!

What initially grabbed our attention was the hard hitter of the group being “Long Distance” which counter poses a Dancehall toasting sample with heavy horns and then drops into an soft electronic string melody for a bit of surprise in texture. If this is what you consider Trap music, yes please.

Escapism, on XL Recordings is available on Amazon, Spotify, and iTunes
