You may know Branchez as the man behind this brilliant remix of Rihanna’s “Stay,” or you might know him as someone supported by the likes of Diplo and Skrillex, but if you have him pegged purely as an “EDM” or “trap” producer, you’re doing him a disservice. Take a quick journey through his Soundcloud and you’ll hear all sorts of different influences from UK garage to drum and bass to sultry R&B.
His new track “Truth” plays with your expectations, starting off like any number of big room bangers, before dropping away into an atmospheric section, and coming back with a hook that sounds like vintage ’90s garage. It’s a wild ride, and an eclectic melting pot of influences. Check out the premiere below.
