Gustavo Bravetti’s incredibly popular take on the theme music to the gripping film Babel has just been released via Virgin Germany. It has proved an instant hit since the musician, magician and producer started playing it in live sets and it prompted an unofficial upload that has gone viral across YouTube and TikTok channels. Now ‘Babel’ is up for grabs as a full single and is ready to properly soak up.
There is serious musicality on show here and Bravetti re-recorded the original sample with his own instrumentation. Speaking on the tune’s inspiration, he says: “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.”
