20-year-old producer salute makes the kind of euphoric synth music that can send shivers down the spine, drawing from hip-hop, R&B, and electronic influences. On his new single “Light Up,” the Austria-born, Manchester-based producer teams up with singer Liv Dawson, releasing a potent mix of glossy synths and drum patterns. Dawson’s angelic vocals shimmer over salute’s bold, vibrant production, speaking to the joy of finding love: “I’m just a fool in love, watching the world light up.”

In an email to The FADER, salute said: “‘Light Up’ is an ode to being happy. I’ve become a much more joyful person over the past year and it is starting to manifest in the music I’ve been making.” Dawson added: “As soon as I heard the track I vibed with it — such a cool, summery feel. Collaborating with other artists you really enjoy, such as salute, is always an amazing feeling.”
