Mexico City-based electronic duo Mylko are set to release their highly-anticipated debut album‘Contrast’ on September 30. Pre-order the album on iTunes.
This week they share album standout “Untraveled.” According to the band, “Untraveled embodies the meaning of the whole album. It encapsulates the adventurous spirit of the record, leaving the ordinary to reach new places and experiences.” Stream it on SoundCloud and grab an exclusive download of the track over at XLR8R.
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.
