Alejandro Ghersi, a.k.a. Arca, is one of the most important producers of the last few years.

Ghersi has a strong and unique vision of music, which allowed him to be noticed as artist and producer, working with Kanye West, Bjork and FKA Twigs. After two impressive records, he released his last album “Arca” in April 2017 on XL Recordings.

The LP is surprising firstly because of Ghersi’s vocals, which reconnect him to his youth production as Nuuro, an electro-pop project where he sang in English on IDM beats. Arca’s voice charms for its apparent imperfection and contributes to create a celestial sound, thanks to the juxtaposition with sudden noise sounds that were typical of his previous production.
