The future is bright for Sam Gellaitry. Just 18 years old and signed to venerated indie label XL Recordings, the producer illustrates a penchant for turning instrumental dissonance into coherent stories on his newly released Escapism EP. Futuristic synths suited for a tasteful pop smash coexist with foregone flutes, electronically modified xylophones, and flamenco guitar.

Gellaitry explores a wide range of moods across the project’s five songs, often doing so within the same track. “Rurality,” “Long Distance,” and the aptly titled “Dreamscapes” stand out as notable standouts, each a strong mixture of wildly different elements..
