Escapism III is the third chapter in his Escapism saga: a coming-of-age trilogy that demonstrates the young prodigy’s unique, filmic musical productions. Hot off the heels of the previous two Escapism instalments, the EP sees Sam Gellaitry’s sound transcending, invoking a cinematic feel of technicolour-esque scope to his experimental production.
Gellaitry, now 20, started producing at the age of 12. Growing up in central Scotland and being influenced by a wide range of musical genres, Gellaitry used his imagination and love of nature to create eclectic soundscapes. The Escapism series in turn weaves a progressive sound throughout with each instalment evolving from the other.
As Sam says of the project: “I always liked when people would compare my tracks to a story or a journey. 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 realised that my escape would turn into what I do as a living, naming the project Escapism only felt right.”
