Arca

Alejandro Ghersi aka Arca has emerged as one of the most influential and totally unpredictable producers of the past few years. He’s completely redefined the sonic boundaries within popular music having worked with the likes of Kanye West, Bjork, FKA twigs and Kelela and has a refreshingly distinctive approach to sound design and structure,. Born in Venezuela and now residing in London after studying in New York, he first released the mutated Hip-Hop creations of ‘Stretch 1’ and ‘Stretch 2’ on forward-thinking label UNO NYC in 2012, before self-releasing the beautifully free-formed ‘&&&&&’ mix-tape. He released his debut album ‘Xen’ on Mute in 2014, a chilling and often challenging exploration of brutally striking drums and ice-cold melodies, that took inspiration from Reggaeton, Hip-Hop, Classical and Atonal music.
