“If you’re a fan of Channel Tres, you’ll dig what Life On Planets and Taylor Bense are cooking up.” –This Song is Sick
October 9, 2020 — Today, Baltimore artist Life On Planets shares his new collaboration with Brooklyn’s Taylor Bense to share a new EP ‘Glowstick‘. The three-song project is their first release together after signing to esteemed dance/electronic label, Kitsuné Musique. The two musicians put their newfound musical chemistry on full display with their sultry summer R&B/House EP.
The title track “Glowstick” premiered on This Song is Sick who says, “The groove on this one is undeniable. The bass line is enough to get any dance floor moving, especially with the playful vocalizing, “bum-ba-dum-bum,” that rides along with it.”
Celeste explains how his new project with Taylor Bense materialized staying, “We were at the studio talking about how we both loved R&B and trap and stuff that was coming out but how it didn’t belong in our sets at dance clubs. We wanted to make something with a taste of both worlds that could be played at our performances without being totally alien to what we already do.”
Life On Planets and Taylor Bense’s new EP is out now via Kitsuné Musique.
