The fourth instalment of Liquicity Records‘ standard setting Escapism compilation album is here, and for fans of the deep and soulful side of the dancefloor the project arrives just in time for those long winter nights creeping in. Featuring the likes of Feint, Hybrid Minds, Technimatic, Nymfo, Pola & Bryson and many more, the collection seems designed to stir up a mix of longing and anticipation for the sizzling vibes that Liquicity traffics in all summer long while keeping in tune with the subtle shifting of the seasons.
While the compilation as a whole is a jaw-dropping testament to the liquid side of drum & bass, our favorite cut features none other than the US-based Flite offering up an epic dreamscape that steals the show with an untouchable vision and scope. From the oceanic atmospheres that ease us into the stunning sweep of the intro, Flite gradually piles on the layers and brings on the goosebumps with a three-minute long atmospheric build that slowly rises out of the mist, patiently grooving its way towards a breakdown of epic proportions.
One listen and you can imagine this one being launched just as the sun begins to crest on the horizon and the night-time starscape begins to fade into blue. Once the crisp percussion comes stepping in at the drop proper, expect your heart to shatter as Flite brings it all home with inimitable style. Out now so lock yours in and prepare for lift-off here.
