Scottish DJ/producer Sam Gellaitry makes forward-thinking genre-bending electronic music that is as evocative and experimental as it is club-ready. A native of Stirling, Gellaitry first began making music in his teens after his older brother introduced him to a computer-based production application. With his family’s blessing, Gellaitry left school at age 16 to focus on music. By the time he was 18, he had gained enough attention for electronic label and collective Soulection to release his Short Stories EP in 2015. That same year, he also released the Escapism EP, on XL Recordings. Two more EPs, Escapism II and Escapism III, dropped in 2016 and 2017, respectively.
