PREMIERE: Branko “Take Off” ft. Princess Nokia (Kashaka Remix)

Lisbon, Portugal, is the home of Cristiano Ronaldo, Amália Rodrigues, and Branko. You may only recognize the first name of the three, but the other two are well worth your time. Branko, co-founder of Buraka Som Sistema, has been bringing the southwest African music of kudoro to the people and today we get a re-interpretation of one of the singles from his debut album, Atlas.

Whereas the original track casually takes you across the world with Princess Nokia on her travels, the new remix has a more rushed playful tone to it that could fit a Guy Ritchie montage.

The remix of “Take Off” comes courtesy of fellow Enchufada artist and Brooklyn via Nebraska DJ Kashaka. He’s worked with Phony Ppl, DJ’d parties for Random Axe and Talib, and appeared on bills with Young Guru and Just Blaze. After a fulfilling and productive six months in Ghana teaching at-risk youth how to make beats and building a recording studio, Kashaka began working with Wati Heru and composing music for TV show like Broad City.

Look out for a solo EP from Kashaka, more work with with Wati Heru, and a new release on Enchufada.
