Ricardo Villalobos doesn’t like the internet. The Chilean-born artist has often declined the interest of the music media rarely giving interviews or uploading his sets online.
But with the BBC Radio 1 Essential celebrating 25 Years in 2018, it seems like Villalobos has finally caved to the requests from Pete Tong. As Tong says in the intro, he’s been pushing for this to happen for years, claiming Ricardo is one the last of the big dogs never to feature (solo) on the Essential Mix.
The mix, however, isn’t recorded in Villalobos home studio. It’s a live two-hour recording from his natural habit in the club at Pyramid on Amnesia Ibiza’s terrace.

Earlier this year, we at Trommel were luckily enough to premiere a Pox & Pol (Ricardo Villalobos and Argenis Brito) track on our Soundcloud. Listen below.
