Branko
Branko is the driving force and one of the main producers in Buraka Som Sistema. The Lisbon
group released their debut album 'Black Diamond' in November 2008 to rave reviews and acclaim from a who's who of relevant producers, and continued to make waves with sophomore
album "Komba" in 2011. As a diagnosed workaholic, when Branko is not touring or in the studio with Buraka, he's either in the studio cooking up new beats, or scouting new music for his Enchufada label.

His solo material is not a 180 from the Buraka sound, but it's a freer approach to electronic music. "With Buraka we would start with a rhythm or a beat, but my songs are built with melodies and loops as the starting point. The sound is a little more personal." He applies almost ten years of research and travelling to his creative output.

Operating as a sort of Anthony Bourdain of ghetto dance music, his mission is to expose the world to as many new rhythms as possible, focusing on artists who aren't easily discovered through the usual channels.

In November 2013, Branko hosted his first show on BBC Radio 1 as part of the In New DJs we Trust. He joins an illustrious list of talent at Radio 1, playing alongside the likes of Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Toddla T and James Blake.

Alex Pasternak
PASTERNAK: You will find him in seedy, pitch-black discotecas at night and on pristine, white beaches at sunrise. An unsolved mystery of tropical rhythm and pulsing synthesizers. A casual whirlwind of uncut ecstasy and effortless cool. A nocturnal master of dancefloor intrigue and international beats.

PASTERNAK: What secrets lie behind those sunglasses? Islands from Manhattan to the Maldives contain no greater complexity than this island of a man. As if surrounded by an ocean of delight itself, he crafts intricate vessels of sound with which to traverse if never tame the endless waves of evening adventure.

PASTERNAK: He knows neither shame nor restraint. His only true companion is the night, his only rival the morning.
