If for some crazy reason Sam Gellaitry isn't already on your rader, then that needs to change fast. Like right now. The 18-year-old Scottish producer from Stirling is heavily associated with Soulection, and has been dropping futuristic and cutting-edge music left and right for the past year with the finesse of someone much older than him.
His Short Stories EP solidified his place in dance music, and his worldwide takeover is truly imminent. Things had been relatively quiet on the music front for the last two months, but that all changed today with two fresh tracks. "glacier" is the first one, start off with mysterious samples and distant hi-hats before launching into an 808 driven jaunt.
It's classic Sam, bridging just the right amount of trap influence with a groove that with have you simultaneously bobbing your head and dancing uncontrollably at the same time. It's alleviating, makes you want to move, and is layered with a dosage of meticulous synth work that will have your jaw reaching for the floor.
Song number two simply goes by the name "nah," and sits just over one minute. Watery instrumentations build at the forefront of this one, before breaking into strange drum samples and then transitioning into a raw, hard-hitting Mr. Carmack sounding drop. Right as you start to lose your shit, then song ends and will leave you begging for more. Kudos Yung Gellaitry.
As a bonus, make sure to stream his Short Stories EP if you haven't already, released a few months ago via Soulection and showing just how diverse his palate really is. Enjoy.
