Sam Gellaitry Shares Genre-Blending ‘Escapism III’ EP

Sam Gellaitry Escapism

It’s been a while since the last Sam Gellaitry project and now he's delivered Escapism III, the third installment to his EP series. Gellaitry’s distinctive and continuously evolving production style can easily be heard throughout the entirety of Escapism III.

The now 20-year-old producer began making waves at 18 when his Short Stories EP dropped on Soulection back in 2015. His unique blend of hip-hop and electronic sounds has earned him millions of plays over the years and even secured him with a spot on NAO’s FAWK Remix EP among producer giants Kaytranada, Mura Masa and more.

The EP includes worldly instrumentation through highly detailed horn, harp and string progressions placed alongside his experimental sound design. The EP combines gentle melodies with slow panning percussion and layered fluttering vocal chops seamlessly blending it into the wonky synths and skittering bass. He effortlessly creates a contrast between organic instrumentation and electronic production as he includes soft strings, acoustic guitar and angelic vocals creating a euphoric atmosphere against the 808s and slashing synths. Escapism III progresses on the Sam G sound we've become fans of over the years and comes via XL Recordings. Listen to it in full below and enjoy!

NAO Delivers 5-Track ‘FAWK’ Remix EP Ft. Kaytranada, Mura Masa, Sam Gellaitry, SBTRKT & More

NAO Kaytra Mura

NAO is a favorite vocalist of ours who came onto the scene in a big way last year with her amazing debut album For All We Know. For those unfamiliar, check out our Catch Up Guide. Now she’s shared a FAWK remix EP bringing remixes from Kaytranada, Mura Masa, Sam Gellaitry, SBTRKT, and Loxe ft. Stormzy

NAO’s album was already great to begin with. The original tracks held dance-friendly production throughout the project, making the tracks very remix friendly. Naturally, she grabbed an all-star cast of producers for this 5-track release giving her originals the new life they needed by a few of our favorite artists. Each track is sounding great as the remixers put their own spin on NAO’s soulful R&B sound. 

Mura Masa kicked off the project with an interesting take on “In The Morning”, putting some distortions on the vocals and incorporating new, bright melodies. Kaytranada’s take on “Get To Know You” is sounding incredibly smooth, of course. He highlights the best parts of the original while adding his own signature percussion and deep, rumbling bassline that hits just right.

Sam Gellaitry’s dreamy rendition of “Do You Want Me” brings a funky flavor to the project with his swirling textures and synthesizer additions. SBTRKT takes an experimental approach to her hit “Bad Blood” while Loxe teams with UK grime rapper Stormzy on their new hip-hop version of “Feels Like”. These remixes touch on many different sounds and are great takes on the original tracks. Enjoy!
