Salaam Remi pulls Akon away from electro-pop records back into the rough state that produced "Locked Up." In the style of the "Kill Bill" music score, the strings ensure your ears that a cowboy shootout will be the finale; only this time the battle is with a corrupt heart. Akon's storytelling lives up to Salaam Remi's engrossing instrumental on "One in the Chamber."
Now is Salaam's time! He is finally ready for his face time, though he is a name everybody knows behind the scenes. Somehow he has avoided branding himself in the public super producer debate while maintaining a formidable discography (Nas, Amy Winehouse, The Fugees, Jazmine Sullivan) that can battle the heavy weights.
He recently launched his record label Re Mi Fa/Louder Than Life, and will release Mack Wilds debut album this year. Remi now preps a compilation album to follow Mack Wilds' release.
