Salami Rose Joe Louis is led by Lindsay Olsen, a female producer and multi-instrumentalist who draws influences from jazz, soul, hip-hop, pop, Shuggie Otis, Captain Beefheart, Stereolab and R. Stevie Moore to create an intergalactic, genre-bending sound.
After signing to Flying Lotus’ renowned independent label Brainfeeder she introduced her blend of experimental dreamy sounds with jazz influenced vocals and keys on her label debut, 2019’s Zdenka 2080. The conceptual, sci-fi-drenched album achieved instant acclaim and was nominated for Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards for Best Album of 2020.
Her production journey began with the acquisition of a Roland MV8800 synth in 2014, catalyzing a deep dive into the production world. On the MV, she self recorded and mixed her albums Son of a Sauce, Zlaty Sauce Nephew, Zdenka 2080 and Chapters of Zdenka. Drawing from her studies in planetary sciences, she creates a unique experience filled with space inspired sounds and galaxy chords.
She has had the honor of joining Flying Lotus’ Flamagra Tour, the Cinematic Orchestra’s European tour, Toro y Moi’s Outer Peace Tour and TuneYards’ US tour, and supported Clairo, MNDSGN, Homeshake and Still Woozy in 2022. She was recently featured on Toro y Moi’s new album, Mahal, and Free the Robots’ most recent album. She also did a remix for Hiatus Kaiyote’s new record on Ninja Tune/Brainfeeder. Her next record, Akousmatikous, drops on May 19, 2023.
