Salaam Remi is best known for his work with Grammy-winning R&B singer Amy Winehouse; he co-produced her hit album Back To Black, along with DJ Mark Ronson, and he was working on her third album at the time of her death in 2011. He’s also worked with artists like the rapper Nas, breakout R&B singer Miguel and the Fugees.

But this week, Remi released his debut solo album, One: In The Chamber, a collection of lushly orchestrated R&B tracks with vocals provided by some of his former collaborators like Corinne Bailey Rae and Akon.

Remi tells Soundcheck host John Schaefer why he decided to step out of the studio and into the spotlight. 

This segment originally aired on Oct. 4, 2013.
