JAY BIRD and CHRXSTAL SARAH, “Escape”
“Escape” is a heart-wrenching, dreamy, soulful electronic ballad from SoCal producer Jay Bird, about whom I’ve written many times. Jay has been gradually moving into a more progressive, future bass style with his songs, and “Escape”, which has been released by Adept Records, is his best to date. And to think that “Escape” might not have seen the light of day. When Jay took some time away from music to regroup a few years back, “Escape” was written and almost forgotten. Rediscovering it, he added the glorious new voice of Chrxstal Sarah, and the transformation was complete. “Escape” has precisely placed beats and drops along with an undeniable hook. Chrxstal’s vocal is a stunner, totally nailing the emotion of the song that will truly resonate with fans of this genre.
