“Contorted grime and glitch; dub and hip-hop…”
ARCA aka Alejandra Ghersi’s 2013 mixtape &&&&& is being released on vinyl for the first time, via PAN this September.
Speaking about the mixtape, she shares: “A sense of possibility, a sense of the unknown; punk attitude, respect for classical music and formality; cyberpunk, anime, sexual tension; trauma, innocence, fear of death; kink, lots of weed, and wanting to connect with people, but not on the terms of a status quo. That kind of sums up &&&&& for me.”
Spanning 25 minutes, &&&&& features “fourteen sonic sketches” woven into a whole – originally released digitally in 2013.
Its vinyl debut features artwork by Jesse Kanda, with remastering by Enyang Urbiks.
The mixtape follows the release of her fourth album KiCk I on XL Recordings.
