This pair of high school friends began their careers as drummers but eventually turned their attention to music production. Having worked with an array of independent artists, Jose Pablo Ibarra (“Jopa”) and Patricio Dávila Sanchez (“Pato”) decided to form Mylko three years ago.
The band’s debut album contains eight tracks and will be available across all digital platforms, including Spotify and iTunes. Other songs on the record include the band’s first single, “Animal,” as well as other mesmerizing tracks such as “Closure,” the title track “Contrast,” or “Winter.” The record focuses on the duo’s personal trials and tribulations, including heartache.
Known for their intricate polyrhythmic compositions, the duo aims to bring a breath of fresh air to the electronica world by challenging popular concepts of music production and songwriting.
Mylko’s music has been described as “refreshing,” “a fantastic rhythmic frenzy” and “vivid electronic soundscapes.”
The band credits Cornelius, Bibio, Flying Lotus and The Chemical Brothers as inspirational artists who have helped shape their sound and style.
