As SALM (Formerly known as SomethingALaMode) prepare for their September 16single release, “Prophet 21,” they are primed to set the upcoming season ablaze with their unique blend of hi octane, stylized house with a peppering of big room electro. Today, the hotly tipped Parisian duo unleahes a brand-new DJ mix, “Summer’s Not Over” to hold us over until then.

Strong fashion leanings aside, Karl Lagerfeld featured in the group’s first single; SALM’sdebut album garnered critical acclaim from fans and peers alike back in 2009. Both Music College graduates, Thomas and Yannick adopt an academic approach to party music, infusing both their passion for Stravinski as well as Daft Punk. SALM’s music combines the theatrics of classical music’s sophistication and well-arranged notes; blending them seamlessly with the kick ass attitude of rave.
Having shared the stage with fellow luminaries like The Bloody Beetroots, Gonzales, Jeff Mills, Madeon, Icona Pop and Zedd, SALM’s career trajectory has been skyrocketing ever since.
After selling 15,000 copies of their first album and touring in cities from Koko in London, to Cigale in Paris and Krysha Mira in Moscow, they continue to bond with an ever increasing audience as their live performances and DJ sets are all the craze. Regulars on the fashion circuit, the duo have also played at various shows including Issey Miyake,Thierry Mugler and Chanel.
The boys are now back in the studio, putting the final touches to their highly anticipated sophomore LP titled, Endless Stairs, to be released January, 2014.
