Arca Releases First Track Off Forthcoming LP, “Soichiro”

arca 2015 track

Venezuelan experimental electronic music producer Arca recently dropped the first track to be released from their upcoming sophomore full-length LP, which they revealed will be titled Mutant. The new single is titled Soichiro, and continues their typically loose-ended production style, with a lot of the glitchy, abrasive textures that were featured on their enjoyable full-length debut, Xen, released last year.

Arca has had a pretty incredible past handful of years, first debuting with their mind-bending Stretch EPs in 2012, then being brought as a guest producer for Kanye West’s latest album, Yeezus, and working pretty prominently with alternative R&B singer FKA twigs on her second EP, and excellent full-length debut, LP1. Most recently, Arca co-produced the latest LP from Bjork, Vulnicura. Following their early Stretch EPs and excellent 2013 mixtape, &&&&&, was their first album Xen, which saw the producer experimenting with not only wonky and instrumental hip-hop music, but also vast, detailed ambient soundscapes that have a very digital, inhuman quality to them.

Soichiro has a massive, epic presention, with gargantuan synthesizers, occasional flourishes of atonal glitches, and extremely odd groove with the percussion. It has a unique ambiance to it, much like on Xen, and is pretty much impossible to categorize in just a few words. While lacking in any sort of clear direction and musical structure, it is an engaging and challenging four-and-a-half minutes, and it has us excited to see what Arca will hit us with on their next LP.

Stream the track below, and let us know what you thought of this latest Arca track.
