Arca mixes it up with hip hop and electronica on his debut album from 2014. "Xen" is about masterful sonic experimentation. There are no vocalists; this is strictly an instrumental album. This album was co-produced with Jesse Kanda. Arca is no slouch when it comes to production work. That was his primary job prior to recording this album.
Past recordings include 4 songs on Kanye West's mega hit "Yeezus." He is producing tracks of Bjork's 2015 album. Born in Caracas, Venezula, and raised in Brooklyn, Arca (Alejandro Ghersi) has a sound all of his own that is definitely in demand. "Xen" is the exciting start to a promising solo career.
