Lisbon-based DJ and producer, Enchufada label head, Red Bull Music Academy alumnus and Buraka Som Sistema co-founder Branko is ready to embark on a whole new adventure. ‘Atlas’ sees Branko becoming part of an international network of artists and shaping a solid body of work that feels his own, while at the same time being truly communal and global. This can be clearly felt both in the impressive number of artists who lined up to participate – over 20 collaborators across 5 different cities – and the hybrid nature of the music, which in true Global Club Music style connects distinct geographies and musical genres to create something new for the world’s dancefloors. Afro-house, zouk bass, gqom or baile funk are treated as pieces of a larger puzzle, put together to create a new tropical-flavored musical picture for the digital age. After hours of work in Red Bull Studios in Amsterdam, Cape Town, New York, São Paulo and Lisbon – documented in the ‘Atlas Unfolded’ webisode series – recording vocals, laying down beats and tweaking samples, ’Atlas’ comes to life and the final list of collaborators is as long as it is culturally rich. From Mr. Carmack to Okmalumkoolkat, Mr. MFN eXquire, DJ Sliink, The Ruffest, Princess Nokia and Lewis CanCut – to name only a few – ‘Atlas’ is a veritable ‘who’s who’ of the Global Club Music scene, all handpicked by Branko to help him bring his colourful artistic vision to life.
