In no time at all Arca has achieved what few manage in an entire career: Creating his own new and unique sound that served to outline a possible path for future electronica. Listening to his beats, it is therefore no surprise that: FKA Twigs owe much of their success to him; Kanye West recruited him to join a team of producers for Yeezus; and more recently Bjork entrusted in him to craft sounds that will populate her new long awaited album. Even more significant than these outstanding credentials is the best Arca material to date, "Xen", an album in which the Venezuelan producer shapes sound like no other, combining lazy beats, grime bass-lines and amazing atmospheres, somewhere between romance and science fiction. His first concerts have also impressed due to the ambiguous nature of his image, and the powerful visuals of close friend Jesse Kanda, currently one of the most sought after artists in the world. A real treat for Sónar by Day and a rare live performance in 2015.

The man behind Arca is Alejandro Ghersi, a young producer born in Caracas in 1990 who recently moved to London after a stint in Berlin. His amazing mixtape "&&&&&", released on Hippos In Tanks two years ago, was the starting point of a short but fast moving career that has led him to collaborate with some of today’s superlative artists.
