Lisbon based globe-trotting production wizard and one of the founding members of Buraka Som Sistema – Branko – returns after a very successful and hectic 2013 with the announcement of the upcoming “Control” EP (drops April 7th).

The title track features the unique and energetic vocals of Yadi and Estonian based producer Bert on Beats, and it’s an Arabian-inspired powerful club anthem with a bassline that twists alongside a hypnotic melody.

London vocalist Yadi released her new glimmering pop single “Creatures” on August 22nd through Seven Brother Records, the track was co-written with L.A producer Ariel Rechtshaid (HAIM, Major Lazer, Usher) and produced by Ariel along with London based Swedish producer Johan Hugo (known for his work with The Very Best, M.I.A, Dan Croll).

Branko (of Buraka Som Sistema) and fellow Portuguese producer King Kong remixes the track into a galloping tropical bass smasher that manages to keep the pop sensibility of the original.

Just in time for the weekend, Lisbon based super producer/dj Branko hands out his ghetto house/bass twist of the massive Disclosure track “When A Fire Starts To Burn”.

“It was already big and amazing, but i had to adapt it a little to make it fit into my sets and might make sense for yours as well.. so, I had to spread it… Festival ready and loud…”

This week’s mix comes from Portugal’s Branko who, besides having a successful solo project, also heads up Enchufada and is 1/4 of Buraka Som Sistema. You might remember my obsession with the JWLS remix of their single “Tira O Pe” last year and if not, you can listen to it here.

This “Smoking That Zouk” mix bubbles with global beats paired with heart rattling heavy bass that will make you want to drop it low and twerk it slow. Branko stays true to his Enchufada label’s African kuduro sound, even infusing Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie” with a bit of zouk. Stream and download the mix below.
