Team Solo, a new project from Hackney's prolific Scuta Salamanca, is turning our heads with debut track 'It Only Makes Me Love You More'. A head-spinning blend of genre, it's a bold and colourful statement.

Electronic, ska and indie influences conflate on 'It Only Makes Me Love You More' in a curio track that stands out from the pack. With collaborators Nick Crofts (Heart Years, The Title Sequence) on piano and also Alex Reeves (Elbow, Dizzee Rascal) on percussion, it makes a statement of intent: Team Solo will work with a new collaborator on each new track.
The track is about being "under the thumb in a relationship," Salamanca said. “I’m trapped in love - but perhaps I like it that way" he added. The track was recorded in an old studio in a North London factory.
It's the first of much to come: be ready.
