It’s dark and the air is full of cyber static. You’re inside some kind of electronic cave, and you’re stumbling around in search of light. You reach a place that is dim-lit and silver, and with it, a certain stillness washes over your body. Then the light slowly builds into a blinding, all-night rave, and you dance.
This is the journey of Matt Lange’s “Escapist,” the opening title track of the Los Angeles-based producer’s latest three-track EP. It just came out on deadmau5‘s mau5trap, and it only gets deeper and more mechanical from there. “Book Biter” is particularly synth-laden and eerily sensual. “Count It” is full of technological groove. Listen to the full Escapist EP below, if you dare.
