Ended 134 weeks ago

Following the scheduled November release of new album XEN, his first on Mute records, Venezuelan producer Arca is set to play Berlin this December 5th alongside collaborator and visual artist Jesse Kanda. Having released three EPs on independent label UNO NYC, mixtapes for Hippos in Tanks and DIS magazine, collaborations with Mykki Blanco, FKA twigs, Holly Herndon and Kanye West, Arca’s acclaim has accelerated significantly in the last two years, further heightened by the announcement that he’ll serve as co-producer for Björk’s forthcoming album.

Visuals from art director and video artist Jesse Kanda will be instantly recognisable from his work on the XEN artwork and accompanying videos from Arca’s &&&&& mixtape. Kanda’s previous collaborations also include work for Comme des Garcons, Martin Margiela, XL Recordings, Kanye West, FKA twigs, and SSENSE.
