Argenis Brito and Ricardo Villalobos have returned to the studio together. The pair are releasing two new tracks under the alias Pox & Pol, due to drop later on this month via London imprint Toi Toi Musik. Both artists are known for their percussive minimal collaborations – in 2016 they joined forces for Amnesia EP, and both featured on the Sei Es Drum classic, Peculiar.
Ricardo is coming back to Farringdon for his next FRRC showcase on 19th May, so he sent over B-side Rikileaks for us to share as an exclusive premiere. Taking in subdued drum squelches and a distorted vocal across a typically enduring 11-minute playtime, it’s one of Ricardo’s more melodic efforts in recent years, recalling cuts like Emilio (2nd Minimoonstar) and Melo De Melo.
