Da' Hot Nation & The Salmon Man by Andre Salmon
Andre Salmon returns to Hottrax with his Da' Hot Nation & The Salmon Man EP, featuring Kricked, K-Mack, and Apollo 84.
Andre Salmon is one of house music's hardest working artists, having featured on almost 100 releases this year alone while chalking up full EPs for the likes of Rawthentic, South of Saturn, and of course Hottrax. Recruiting an all-star team of collaborators for "Da' Hot Nation & The Salmon Man", Salmon calls up Slightly Sizzled Records boss Kricked, fellow Hottrax alumni K-Mack, and Twisted Fusion's Apollo 84.
Opening cut "Da' Hot Nation" adds a modern twist to the sound of early 00's breaks, with Salmon and Kricked deploying a rattling bassline and snappy drums to devastating effect, as springy yet subdued vocal chops splash between the percussion.
"Salmon Man" with K-Mack sees the pair assemble a grooving house track, sprinkled with dubbed-out hi-hats and effected vocals, rolling effortlessly through its peaks and troughs. Joining forces with Apollo 84 for the third and final track, "Black Poem, Black Me" utilizes creeping synth lines and chunky basslines to craft a seriously effective slice of house, perfectly rounding off the release.
