We first heard of Arca through our friends at UNO NYC, a record label known for their far-reaching exploration of the electronic music cosmos. It was 2012, and Arca’s sound was a refreshingly bright object throwing shade on the EDM backdrop. After releasing a handful of EPs on UNO, the Venezuelan producer appeared to go quiet, in terms of new releases at least. But this period of apparent inactivity was in fact preparation for some powerful collaborations that would see Arca recognized as one of the most influential producers in the music industry.
Firstly, it was with Kanye West, with whom Arca produced four tracks on Yeezus, then with FKA Twigs on her Mercury-nominated debut record LP1. Soon after, it was confirmed that Arca was co-producer of Björk’s Vulnicura.
We’re immensely proud to work with Arca. He uses a Novation Impulse 61 and an UltraNova in his studio.
