Eventually is lovely. Eventually is fire! Those are not our words, though, but rather the personal opinions of BBC Radio 1 DJ B.Traits and world-renowned producer, DJ and tastemaker Diplo – respectively – who upon hearing Branko’s latest track just had to run to Twitter to tell the world how much they loved it. And the praise goes on in the comments section of Red Bull Music Academy’s Soundcloud page, where Eventually (feat. Alex Rita & Bison) was featured on the ’20 Before 15’ free download series and (at least) one fan claims to have played it 300 times. We believe him.
Fusing the rhythmically-charged beats of afro-house with compelling marimba melodies and the uplifiting indie vocals of Okapii’s Alex Rita, Eventually marks the beginning of a whole new musical journey for the globetrotting producer, musician and Enchufada head honcho Branko. After recording the track at the Red Bull Studios in Copenhagen, the overwhelming response it got inspired him to take a whole new approach to his work that would define the next few months of his life. Deciding to record a whole album while travelling across the world, he connected with local artists from some of the most exciting music scenes around, and recording the voices, beats and samples that will eventually become his highly-anticipated debut album ‘Atlas’.
NYC-based producer Tony Quattro jumps in on the remix, expertly distilling the original’s essence and turning it into a dancefloor-focused anthem fit to rock the world’s most tropical DJ sets, by introducing some extra bass weight and heavy ballroom percussion. This only the first stop on an epic journey that has taken Branko to New York, Amsterdam, Cape Town and São Paulo on a mission to show how global this Global Club Music scene can truly get, while simultaneously raising the bar for all dance music with a cultural edge.
