Branko 'Time Out' ft. Orlando Santos

Watch Buraka Som Sistema producer/founder Branko's sun-tinged video for the atmospheric electropop "Time Out" ft. Orlando Santos.


Buraka Som Sistema producer/founder Branko recently dropped this sun-tinged video for "Time Out," which rounds up visuals of the best time you could possibly have with friends in the great outdoors — woods, waterfall dives, swimming ponds, they're all there. The single is a departure from Buraka's recent zouk bass exploration, and their previous kuduro productions, with Branko delivering a stripped-down & laid-back beat over which Orlando Santos lays down some atmospheric croons. Watch it below and grab "Time Out" from Branko's recent (and free) Drums Slums & Hums mixtape.
