Following a successful summer release last year with William James and Yetep, “Light Up The Way,” Portuguese-Indian singer/songwriter, chæ, also known as Chelsea Andrea De Silva is kicking off 2019 with her latest track, “Escape,” in collaboration with emerging DJ/producer, Troyak. “Escape” is truly a unique and a one-of-a-kind song that’s hard to only categorize as an electronic track. It’s a track that crosses the line between R&B and orchestral psy-trance, featuring chæ’s angelic soulful vocals while telling the story of a person’s inner devious and lustful thoughts who wants to make someone theirs. “Escape” is filled with raw sensuality and emotion thanks to Chæ's seductive voice and Troyak's infectious smooth beats. Troyak and Chæ have come together for the first time for their independent release out NOW!
“I met chæ in Boston and exchange numbers after discovering we were both pursuing music. I sent her the little link to the draft for ‘Escape,’ and she comes back with a rough vocal on it and I go crazy. I got SOOOOO inspired after I heard her voice on that track. I thought it was going to be just a nice little idea I’d forget about, but then boom, and I was sooo fired up. I wrote more stuff and eventually we had a full song. A couple of edits later the song was pretty much finished. Today I hope it is unrecognizable when comparing it to the original track that inspired me to make Escape. But I think music fans will be able tosee where I drew the influence from.” – Troyak
While talking about collaborating with Troyak on “Escape,” chæ said, “I met Max while he was on tour with KSHMR. We got caught up in conversation, felt connected artistically and kept in touch. A couple of weeks later, he sent me a few links of rough ideas that he had lying around, and one file called ‘Pain’ had caught my attention, which was the beginnings of what became ‘Escape.’ Take a listen to the full track down below on Spotify:
