NEWS: salute shares euphoric tribute to club culture on ‘system’ feat Empress Of

Vienna Austria by way of Manchester artist, salute, shares their first single of the new year ‘system’ on Ninja Tune. Paying homage to the UK’s club culture and French techno with a thumping, euphoric track expertly decorated in the neon lit keyboards textures and heady vocals that capture the rising tempo of joy on the dancefloor, introduced by a fade-in and celebratory lyrics. The song comes alongside a visualizer and features subtle vocals from Empress Of who also has co-writing credits on the track:

saltue shares about the song, “I think ‘system’ best describes where my head is at in terms of the sound I’m trying to get across. I’ve been obsessively re-diving into old French records and they’ve had a massive influence on how I produce my music – this one was particularly fun to make. I’m so in love with my pal Empress Of’s vocals on this tune, I’ve wanted to work with her for a number of years now and I’m so pleased we could make this work. As with most of the tunes I’ll be releasing this year, ‘system’ is a collaborative effort: had help from Karma Kid, Andy Smith and Baz Kaye (Bondax) on this one. they came through with the ingredients to tie ‘system’ together beautifully.”

Alongside the new single salute is also announcing the first leg of their world tour beginning in Brussels on 23rd February. The tour features stops through Manchester, Paris, Tokyo, and Barcelona among many others.

Last year salute released their latest EP ‘Shield’ followed earlier singles ‘Joy‘ and ‘Therapy’ as well as co-signs from artists including Four Tet, DJ Seinfeld, Floating Points, Mall Grab, and more.

salute was first initiated into the UK club scene at 18 after moving to Brighton and then Manchester.
