Casmalia, a DJ, producer, and live vocalist from San Diego, returns to the release scene with her new collaboration with Sean Lafayette, ‘Escape From You.’ The multifaceted artist’s latest release follows her February original production ‘Tethered,’ as well as her May track ‘Makes Sense,’ featured on Night Bass Freshman Vol7.
Casmalia is known for primarily playing original songs in her sets and singing live over her productions, and she incorporates her distinct sound design into each of her records. ‘Escape From You’ is available now on IN/ROTATION.
‘Escape From You’ is a vibrant offering that audibly boasts a propelling four-on-the-floor tone, perfectly paired with a rich, sultry vocal cut. The track starts with a pulsating bassline and percussive elements, followed by Casmalia’s enthralling vocals. A rising tension is built before unleashing an infectious beat drop revealing a reverberating bassline accompanied by a pitched-down vocal chop on loop.
The track encapsulates the ears, transporting listeners to a euphoric soundscape, oozing with atmospheric energy unlike before. ‘Escape From You,’ a stellar addition to her growing discography, oozes with an unquenchable groove, featuring the best of what house music has to offer as a genre.
“‘Escape From You’ has been an idea in my head since the start of 2022. Like many of my tracks, I started with the vocals and built the rest of the track around them. The song has undergone several reworks and transformations since its inception, including a more minimal version that I sang live this year at Coachella and received a fantastic crowd response,” Casmalia said.
“Collaborating with Sean has helped this track reach its full evolution. He did a fantastic job creating a melody that conveys the original emotion of the song: the freeing feeling of letting go of someone/something we once loved that no longer serves us,” she added.
Preparing to enter the next chapter of her musical career in 2022, Casmalia leaves fans eagerly waiting for new music as she prepares to drop a slew of releases later this year. 2022 has been nothing short of exciting for the multifaceted talent, releasing a handful of original productions and stepping behind the decks at notable festivals, including Firefly, Dancefestopia, and Same Same But Different.
’Escape From You’ is a premier example of Casmalia’s unique production technique and infectious sound design, offering listeners a taste of what the rising talent has planned.
