George Reid – Runaway EP

Posted on Oct 27th, 2023 in Releases by Mr. Goldbar

Shining bright with sparkly synths and urgent rhythms, Runaway is the first solo release from George Reid, the iconoclastic studio savant behind the million selling electronic sci-fi R&B duo AlunaGeorge who gave us the international smash “You Know You Like It” and the huge Disclosure collaboration “White Noise.” In his own words, George says: “I wanted to make something that musically looped like a French Touch record but had a UKG swing.” Indeed, on this EP the talented multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer explores the spaces in-between house, techno, garage, trance and hyper-pop. The first single “Feelings” is instant ear candy, a warm electronic hug for the dancefoor. The title track “Runaway” brings the tempo even faster, manipulating a trance vocal over a relentlessly chugging track. We take a lighthearted turn on the closer “Voyeur”, a raver weapon that bends synth stabs into oblivion. Listen now.
