Released today as an official single through Virgin’s German arm is “Babel,” a track inspired by the film of the same name. Since it was heard played out, Gustavo Bravetti’s spin on the theme tune became nothing short of a viral hit – leading to an unofficial upload sneaking onto the internet. The man behind it draws on art, magic and invention to convey his alias to the world and Bravetti has been making music for years. This punchy, atmospheric tune leans heavily into its rhythmicality, and the producer has re-recorded the original sample with his own instrumentation. 

Bravetti reveals: “The core idea for the track came up while watching the movie Babel for the second time. The melody is on the ending credits, which I missed the first time I saw it. I immediately fell In love with its melancholic foreign flavors and wanted to contrast it with a deep-visceral bass. The result went beyond expectations.”
