Artist spotlight: Salva
Next up in our series of posts spotlighting the artists we're thrilled to have for the T&B 6 Year Anniversary party is the one and only Salva. Here's a guy who's been ahead of the game in talent and execution for a long time. It's safe to say, his own releases are just as worth looking out for as any on his Frite Nite label. He just dropped a mind warping live set for the legendary Boiler Room
If you happened to miss it, here's the MASSIVE remix of "Mercy" Salva co-conjured with RL Grime. This beast took over dancefloors all summer.
Here is a KILLER batch of beats, in the form of a mix he dropped for PlayGround. It's all the people you want to see on a mix right now, such as NastyNasty, LOL Boys, Clicks & Whistles, Dark Ages, Nguzunguzu, and...well, you get the idea.
His newest release is a spaciously dirty trap remix of Hydraulix's, "From the Bottom." It's out on Frite Nite, and you can pick it up on Beatport: HERE
