Published Feb 15, 2017After making waves in the electronic community with the first two instalments of his Escapism series, Scottish producer Sam Gellaitry has lifted the curtain on a third chapter of the musical saga. Titled Escapism III, Gellaitry's latest work will arrive on April 7 through XL Recordings.
A press release notes that the third Escapism release sees the 20-year-old Gellaitry's sound "transcending, invoking a cinematic feel of technicolour-esque scope to his experimental production." Listeners can get a sense of that with EP cut "Jungle Waters," which can be found below.
"I always liked when people would compare my tracks to a story or a journey," Gellaitry said in a statement. "It is something I've always strived for and I love imagining my fans getting lost in my tracks just as you would with a book or when exploring. I also feel that having an escape and something that takes your mind off the negativity in life is essential. When I realized that my escape would turn into what I do as a living, naming the project Escapism only felt right."
