Glenard Kojo Patnelli (GKP) and Gabriel Kweku Wood (Mr. Wood) are the dexterous artists that makeup Team Salut, one of the most competent teams with regard to the production of Afro-Electronic music in Africa. This duo has worked with some of the best afrobeat artists to produce word-classic hits such as ‘Dance for Me’ by Eugy featuring Mr. Eazi in 2016. It is evident that Team Salut are masters of afro music as they present it in different styles like Afro-beat and Afro-electronic.
On January 27th, 2022, Team Salut dropped their latest single, 400%. This track is a masterpiece because not only does it feature them as producers but also as the artists that bring life to it. The melody of 400% is full of life. It’s a simple repetitive whistle that has been blended in perfectly with the rest of the instruments giving the ideal afro vibe. The whole instrumental is spectacular and would prompt anyone to drop a couple of freestyle lines. The producers were fine enough to accompany the song with a clean instrumental on Spotify and YouTube for those that love vibing to the beat.
The vocals on the track are typical afro-beat vocals with a small twist to the style of performance. Team Salut has used a couple of sudden pauses on the vocals to give the track a dramatic feel and arouse the interest of the listener throughout the song.
The track is precise and gets the aura home as it is only two minutes and a couple of seconds long. This is appropriate for an afro-electronic classic as the attention of the listener should be retained for the whole period the track plays. The song is definitely a club banger as no particular message seems to be communicated in the lyrical flow. The flow and mood have been well set on the speed of the song and the vocal presentation.
Some of their other songs, such as “Drogba,” are among their most remarkable productions, with a captivating rhythm that allows them to build something bigger than life and existence. Team Salut’s sound is becoming more refined, with more musical originality, as they advance up the popularity ladder, with more songs flowing in along the motion of their career graph.
