Arca – Xen (Official Video)

Where EDM seems to be all the rage these days – Dillon Francis, Diplo, Skrillex and the like – there also seems to be a breed of underground producers, working to simultaneously shake the boogie and scare the heebie-jeebies out of you. If you haven’t yet heard of Arca, it is high-time that this introduction occurs.

I suppose if you think about his music as the Alien Vs Predator of the electronic music world, that only touches the surface of what this guy is all about. And if you’re having difficulty understanding what that even means, his latest video really speaks for itself. Equally eerie as it is enjoyable, Arca‘s music incorporates multi-faceted layers of exceptional production. His latest single – and the title for his debut album – Xen proves as much. Where the song could easily be used as a backing tracking from Yeezus, the visuals of the new clip expose the body of a naked female manoeuvring in all different shapes and forms.

Having already collaborated with the likes of the lord himself, Kanye West, and leading into work with Iceland’s sweetheart, Björk – Arca‘s debut release is arguable one of the most striking debuts to come out of 2014.
