The duo of Kapital team up with Richard Pinhas on the next release from Polish label Instant Classic

Keeping up its ever-impressive strike rate, the next release from Polish label Instant Classic sees the duo of Rafał Iwański and Jakub Ziołek, better known together as Kapital, team up with Heldon's Richard Pinhas.

Together, they have produced a new album entitled Flux and ahead of its release on Friday, you can stream the album in full above right now. The record came together after Kapital and Pinhas teamed up at Kraków's Unsound festival.

"My first encounter with Richard Pinhas in a live setting took place in 2009 when he played CoCArt Music Festival in Toruń," says Iwański. "It was a great experience but more akin to psychedelic and rhythmic ambient music. It wasn't until 2013 when we met again, this time with Jakub Ziołek, during If You Say So... Festival in Bydgoszcz and this resulted in the creation of the Kapital project. Richard mentioned then that he would love to come back and play some more concerts in Poland."

Iwanński continues: "When working together with Jakub as Kapital or in bigger bands like Innercity Ensemble, we tend to rely on improvising. This was also the case here: Richard played on the basis of our sounds and we adjusted our sound visions to create a more concise entity."

Flux is made up of five tracks as well as an additional bonus track. The album is out this Friday (March 9) and can be pre-ordered directly from Instant Classic here.
