Salaam Remi's name can be found in the album credits for his music production on albums from Amy Winehouse, Alicia Keys, Jazmine Sullivan, Nas among other top sellers. Now, he has evolved from a producer to a record label owner, launching his Re Mi Fa/Louder Than Life label. The first artist signed to the imprint is "The Wire" and "90210" actor Tristan Mack Wilds.
"Mack is extremely talented, and his experiences of being born and raised in New York City has offered him a unique musical and lyrical perspective for this generation," says Grammy Award-nominated producer SalaAM Remi.
Wilds' lead single "Own It" was co-written by Ne-Yo, who also assisted Salaam Remi on the music production of the song. The Staten Island native's debut album, New York: A Love Story, is scheduled for release on September 17, 2013. Production veterans DJ Premier, Pete Rock and Havoc will contribute to the set while Method Man and Raekwon will lend their rhymes.
"The main thing that we wanted to do with this album was to reflect what New York City is all about and who better to do it than the people who made it what it is in the first place," Says Wilds.
