“Escape” is truly a unique record that evokes emotion like no other. It crosses the line between R&B and orchestral psy-trance, featuring Chae‘s soulful voices while telling the story of the inner devious and lustful thoughts of a person who wants to make him their own. Troyak truly grasps the position of a story-teller with the production of this single. Tackling the task at hand, both artists were able to join forces to create a special piece of music.
“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.’” -Chae
“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 to see where I drew the influence from.” – Troyak.
