How do I begin to describe the sounds of Brooklyn producer Arca? His sound is illogical and enigmatic, yet ridiculously catchy, as I find myself hitting the rewind button one too many times after discovering that the 25-minute mix of audio madness is once again over. The way the songs blend together is so cohesive that you'll never know when one of the seamless track begins and the other ends, providing a listening experience that takes the user on a journey of eclectic sounds (one notable section being the distinct piano piece that goes down at around the half way mark.)
Arca, who is responsible for contributing a good chunk of the tracks on Kanye West's latest polarizing project, Yeezus, dutifully showcases his chops; the Louis Vuitton Don was smart in acquiring the talents of the young Venezuelan-born artist (whose real name is Alejandro Ghersi), as his sound shows no boundaries. But enough talk, give it a listen down below and prepare to get your mind blown. Hopefully this won't be the last of him...
