The young Scottish producer that I just can’t get enough of, Sam Gellaitry, just released a new EP, Escapism. The EP¬†sports the signature Sam G sound, encompassing a spectrum of bells, chimes, wooden percussion, and any other sample he can get his hands on. The production value alone should be enough to sell you on this kid’s talent, but what drives the bargain home is his natural talent for perfectly integrating trap influences with the new sound that he’s brought to the table. It’s a listening experience that will turn any person unaware of this young talent into a die hard fan over the 17 minutes that the EP lasts. Starting with an intro aptly called “INTRO” and an outro titled, you guessed it, “OUTRO”, it’s easy to observe that Sam is trying to tell a story with this EP. Up to your own interpretation, the story I have found within it is a transformation. Moving effortlessly from sound to sound, progression to progression, the transformation of the music through¬†Escapism is unparalleled. He has gone a step above his older music, and is now refining his style into a more professional sound. I won’t even begin to try and explain why these tracks are great because they deserve a listen. If you wanna see Sam Gelliatry live, which you do, you can catch him opening up for Mr. Carmack on his upcoming tour through North America.
