Hard and heavy riddims from the Portuguese globalista formerly known as J-Wow.

If you've been following THUMP since day zero, you've heard a lot about Branko. You may know the Portuguese producer and DJ from his tenure with festival favorites Buraka Som Sistema, or from his cameos on Los Angeles it-label Mad Decent. He's also one of the minds behind Enchufada, the global bass label that's connected DJs, producers, and dancers in Venezuela, Peru, Angola, England, Germany, and more. With a catalogue that includes everyone from Bok Bok to Canblaster to T. Williams and Schlachthofbronx, Enchufada has likely been responsible for some of your more acrobatic dancefloor antics.


Branko demonstrated that his crates are deeper than yours with this exclusive mix that weaves in and out of mutant dembow, neon soca, and kuduro alongside the usual 808 snares and rave synths. With appearances from Astronomar, Dubbel Dutch, Uproot Andy, MikeQ, and Dengue Dengue Dengue, the dude connects a lot of dots with this tracklist, and it's a fitting celebration for the release of his recent EP, Control on Enchufada. The EP, which came out April 7, is stuffed with collaborative tracks that stretch Branko's hard, drum-heavy riddims to their outer limits, plus refreshing vocals cuts provided by Yadi and TT the Artist. You can hear some of the new cuts in todays mix and go cop it yourself afterwards.
