Afro B & Team Salut’s Afrowave Sound at Notting Hill Carnival
The afrowave pioneer and Mitcham-based crew take over the Red Bull Soundsystem at London’s Caribbean culture street celebration.
If you haven’t heard of or danced to the track “Drogba,” you’re missing out on one of the UK’s most exciting emerging artists, Afro B. The afrowave pioneer, a South Londoner by birth with heritage in the Ivory Coast, has helped lead the sound alongside Kojo Funds, J Hus and Yxng Bane — they’re racking up millions of streams with a genre that blends hip-hop, dancehall and African melodies. The crew behind Team Salut is often found behind the desk rather than the mic, pushing the sound forward from a studio in Mitcham. Team Salut has secured a MTV Bass #1 and produced for a huge range of artists including Eugy, Mr Eazi, Tion Wayne, Anne-Marie and even Cheryl Cole with her comeback.
