Andre Salmon returns to Jamie Jones’ Hottrax this month with his ‘Da’ Hot Nation & The Salmon Man’ EP, featuring Kricked, K-Mack, and Apollo 84. Andre has featured on almost 100 releases this year alone while chalking up full EPs for the likes of Rawthentic, South of Saturn, and Hottrax. Recruiting a team of collaborators for this EP, he calls up Slightly Sizzled Records’ boss Kricked, fellow Hottrax artist K-Mack, and Twisted Fusion’s Apollo 84.
Opening cut ‘Da’ Hot Nation’ adds a modern twist to the sound of early ‘00s breaks, with Salmon and Kricked deploying a rattling bassline and drums to effect, as springy yet subdued vocal chops splash between the percussion.
‘Salmon Man’ with K-Mack sees the pair assemble a house track, sprinkled with dubbed-out hi-hats and effected vocals, rolling through its peaks and troughs.
Joining forces with Apollo 84 for the third and final track, ‘Black Poem, Black Me’ utilises creeping synth lines and chunky basslines to craft a slice of house, rounding off the release.
It’s out now.
