Fast-rising London-based artist/producer trio TEAM SALUT are having a stellar game-changing 2018 already, and we are just three months in. They are the forces behind the excellent new Yxng Bane single ‘Vroom’, which has already amassed 7 million plays on Spotify and YouTube, and they also produced Afro B’s new viral hit ‘Drogba’, which has nearly 4 million plays under its belt, without a music video, after causing a massive stir on social media with the #DrogbaChallenge. Today, the trio are proud to debut their brand new single ‘Buss It Up’ featuring Big Tobz and Deefundo, premiered via Highsnobiety.
With over 50 million plays already under their belt, co-signs from Spotify, BBC 1Xtra, Channel 4, Red Bull, and Boxpark, among others, two UK Top 40 singles and BBC Radio 1 A-list to their name, collaborations with the likes of PARTYNEXTDOOR, Stefflon Don, ZAYN, Rita Ora and Emeli Sande, and production credits on some of the country’s biggest records, TeamSalut have been reshaping the British music landscape and culture over the past 18 months.
While the likes of J Hus, Kojo Funds and Yxng Bane have undoubtedly been at the artist forefront of the fast-rising UK ‘Afrowave’ movement, Team Salut are, without question, one of its most pioneering behind-the-boards figures, having produced some of its biggest hits – from Eugy and Mr. Eazi’s summer smash ‘Dance For Me’, to Tion Wayne’s breakthrough record ‘Minor’, to Afro B’s ‘Stay Winning’ featuring Grammy Award-nominated rapper Wale and Sneakbo.
More recently, Team Salut have stepped out into the forefront, as artists in their own rights, with their ‘Hot Property’ single and accompanying video, which features Tion Wayne, Afro B and Eugy. Already looking like another game changer for the UK ‘AfroWave’ scene with nearly a million plays already, the single has been championed by BBC 1Xtra, Capital Xtra, MTV UK,Rinse FM, Radar Radio, Wonderland Magazine, The FADER, Highsnobiety, Notion Magazine, Earmilk, GRM Daily, Link Up TV and the MOBO Awards, among others.
