Today sees hotly tipped artist/producer salute release the video for his new single 'Storm' having premiered via The FADER. It is the second track to be taken from his impending My Heart mini-album and the follow up to the D.R.A.M. featuring hit 'One More Chance'. Check out the premiere here and view/share the video via YouTube here. 'Storm' sees salute doing what he does best; perfectly balancing soulful melodic top lines & honeyed vocals with swirling synths and rattling percussion. The track is set to continue to cement salute's position as one of the most exciting talents in electronica right now. Directed by up and coming talent Raine Allen-Miller, the video celebrates the unique mix of cultures found in the UK. Discussing her ideas behind the video, Allen-Miller states; "Britain is currently undergoing a time of national instability, a severance that is still very sore. The media portrays an island of selfish hands grabbing at the last scraps of what they see as 'their Britain.' This video is a celebration of the incomparable mix of cultures and the unique blend of people that makes this country so incredible - what makes Great Britain so great." Discussing the origins of the track salute states, "I'm mega proud of Storm. I kind of see it as the follow up to my last single Diamond that was a huge step up in my production and capacity to build a structured pop song. I worked with the same vocalist (Cleo Tighe) on that one, and together we reimagined an instrumental, which I'd always loved, in to something catchy that gets you going." salute is building up to the release of his My Heart mini-album on 19th August and will be recording a special Maida Vale session for Huw Stephens that will be airing week of release. On top of this, salute will be playing at Pitchfork Avant-Garde on October 26th, the opening party for the legendary Pitchfork Music Festival in Paris. In addition to D.R.A.M., who features on 'One More Chance', the 'My Heart' mini-album features vocals from a wealth of breakthrough talent salute has connected with while releasing his music online over the past few years. 'Weigh It Up' features the silky vocals of Leeds based artist/producer Krrum, Brooklynite KAMAU brings a playful tone to
'Forever (Pearls)' with his syncopated flow and the enigmatic Yami effortlessly contributes a haunting vocal to 'Yours & Mine'. Hailing from Vienna and now living in Manchester, salute is an incredibly talented 20year old who draws on a wide range of musical influences to create his genre blurring electronica. salute's affinity for UK bass culture and US hip-hop & trap at an early age has helped shape his development as an artist whilst his upbringing in Austria has helped influence his unique sound that sets him apart from the pack. His previous release, October 2015's 'Gold Rush' EP, featured a guest spot from prominent Atlanta talent ABRA and saw him pick up backing from a host of tastemakers such as TheFADER, Dummy and i-D alongside support from BBC Radio One stalwarts Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart.
