Escape Artist is a fast rising producer and DJ whose lush yet raw take on house and breaks has been thoroughly pleasing our ears as of late. With releases on Salt Mines, X-Kalay, and Couch Acid Recordings, Escape Artist has proven himself as one to watch in the months to come. Atmosphere and tension are a key components of the Melbourne based man’s sound, with broken beats and jittery acid lines often found drifting over dubbed out backdrops - a strong recipe for far reaching mental transportation.
Here he has provided us with a mix of music that is close to his heart. "Sometimes you find yourself in a bit of a funk (not the good kind). Every now and then you need a little reminder of why you love music so much. This one is dedicated to all of my friends who helped reinspire me over the past few months - especially those who embarked on a special camping trip to Lerderderg."
