An experience of any of Salah’s magical sets is one that remains with you for days, weeks and months.

This newborn focus on releasing his own music in 2013 kicked started by the winning remix for Yousef - Italo Sleeze (Salah + Hoolz Mix) release on July 22nd. Definitely inspired 2014 also brings the release of his second EP "Paris with a K" on One28 Recordings with remixes from Jef K and Ronin & Nesta.
