Movements in music are years in the making, yet giant waves can feel like a matter of moments to create. British music is witnessing its next big movement, as a new Afro wave is sweeping across the scene at hurricane pace. Anthems are racking up plays and views in their millions and in amongst the bangers there’s no doubt you will have heard the Team Salut hallmark punctuating the biggest hits from the rising stars of the AfroWave scene. If you’re asking ‘who are they?’ the answer is easy – Team Salut are the sound.
Team Salut have been innovating their signature style over four short years, establishing their brand as the premiere producers in London’s burgeoning Afro scene. Pioneers from the jump, Team Salut are Mr Wood, GKP and Side Chain Manny – three self taught multi-instrumentalists who met in London and fused their roots across Africa’s West Coast, from Ghana to Sierra Leone and Nigeria.
The Team Salut discography is virtually synonymous with the evolution of the UK Afro sound and in 2016 they clocked over 50 millions plays with their smash ‘Dance For Me’ with Mr Eazi and Eugy. From Tion Wayne’s ‘Minor’; to Afro B, Wale and Sneakbo’s ‘Stay Winning’; to Eugy’s ‘Hold Tight’ – Team Salut have proved they have an ear for authentic club bangers and a keen eye for new talent. They’re working with the hottest breakout artists and remixing the biggest stars from Ray BLK to ZAYN and PARTYNEXTDOOR all while earning high praise and setting the industry standard for the sound.
As they go from strength to strength, Team Salut’s reputation is capturing imaginations worldwide. Alongside a co-sign from Usher for their production on Tion Wayne’s ‘Minor’, international fans of their music include Jidenna, Davido, Sarkodie and Mr. Eazi. In the UK, they’re working with Yxng Bane, Wusu, Afro B, Eugy, Tion Wayne, Sneakbo, Not3s, Shakka amongst many more. Team Salut are curating a vibrant sound palette drawing on every dimension of modern music and creating a future forward internationalist sound. Taking the AfroWave to the world stage, Team Salut are ready to announce their arrival.
