Sam Gellaitry why just treat the ears when there are other senses just sitting there?

Using both photography and music production as his tools, Sam Gellaitry flawlessly paints a picture with Escapism III.

VANCOUVER – For most young people, figuring out what you want to do with the rest of your life can be a daunting task. For producer Sam Gellaitry, however, making the decision to drop out of school at age 16 to focus on music was natural for the young star. At age 17, his actions were reaffirmed when he signed to L.A.-based record label Soulection. Now, three years later, the producer has signed to his dream label at XL Recordings and is crafting music that beautifully orchestrates the cinematic sounds of his daily life.

The last time the Scottish-born artist stopped in Vancouver was in October of last year opening for the Glass Animals’ “How to be a Human Being” tour where he played a set of all his own music. “[It was] very refreshing. It felt like a milestone because I never used to play much of my own music in DJ sets,” the young artist shares. “The fact that I can travel playing my own music really strengthens my self-belief in producing and makes my music stronger.”

Having just released the conclusive third EP from his Escapism trilogy, Gellaitry has a lot to take in over his worldwide tour promoting the new record. With an eye for capturing sounds through an objective lens and, quite literally, a camera lens, he encourages his fans to take a peek into the sounds that he composes through photography. “It’s a great way of capturing atmosphere and surroundings which [in turn] inspire the music I make,” he explains. “I like the contrast between photography and production because it’s capturing something in the best way possible rather than creating something completely new and different.”

Gellaitry pushes the sound in his new album through enigmatic imagery, intricately detailing the vivid sounds of his surroundings. He shares how each of the songs off of his new EP has its own picture to paint. “[My sound is] very hard to pinpoint to a specific genre. I just call it ‘electronic,’” explains Gellaitry. With tracks like “Jungle Waters” being inspired by film scores and “Acres” being inspired by his hometown, Escapism III showcases the diversity within the young musician’s sound.

Sam Gellaitry performs April 15 at Fortune Sound Club as part of Seasons Festival.
