Upcoming Releases: Arca; Clark

Venezuelan glitch producer Arca (real name Alejandro Ghersi) announced his debut album, Xen, which is to be released internationally on November 3 on Mute, and on November 4 in the United States. The 24 year-old has gained attention through a string of EPs, as well as the acclaimed mixtape &&&&& and contributions to Kanye West’s Yeezus and FKA twigs’ LP1. He also debuted Xen‘s lead single, “Thievery”, which features off-kilter synths and distorted vocal samples.

British techno artist Clark (real name Chris Clark) announced his next self-titled album, also out November 3 on Warp. Clark will be the producer’s eighth album, and the producer says that it will straddle the “fine line of being ultimate bliss and sadness at the same time.” He shared “Unfurla” from the album, a techno number driven by a 4/4 kick drum and arpeggiated synths.
