Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky
Hailing from the landscapes of the UK’s Brighton area, recording artist and producer Lucas Gil began hitting the ground running after dropping his debut album in 2018, and since then has manifested an insatiable buzz and respectable following since his inception. Now after two albums in the books and relentless DIY promotion, Lucas has come back out swinging with his newest single “Escape”.
Honing a signature sound that captures the essence of 80’s Synth-Wave and today’s more modern EDM approach, “Escape” is a song that puts a nostalgic feel into the electronic experience, balancing equal parts originality and familiarity; giving his listeners a taste of something fresh yet still identifiable. His rhythms and progressions are diligently placed and have a simple yet effective aura throughout the first half of the track. It grabs the listener’s undivided attention and embraces you with both smart melody choices and a subtle yet suspenseful buildup.
There’s a great use of synth parts throughout the track’s duration and it really showcases Lucas‘s craft as a producer as well as a songwriter. It never tries to outdo itself in any way nor are there any repetitive one trick pony tactics. Each measure offers up intrigue and fresh angles that contribute to this song and Lucas‘s attentiveness to detail is very much present.
“Escape” is currently available for download on all mainstream digital platforms and we can’t recommend this highly enough. If you dig today’s EDM realm with 80’s and 90’s flavors, then this track will not disappoint.
