Arca Releases '&&&&&' on Vinyl
- Words: Chris Kokiousis
Last year, Brooklyn-based producer and UNO affiliate Arca released the standout &&&&&—a free mix of original material, continuing his line of disembodied, surreal hip-hop experiments—along with helming production for FKA twigs' EP2 (featuring one of our favorite tracks of 2013) and contributing to Kanye West's ubiquitous Yeezus LP. Now, the Venezuelan-born artist has announced a limited vinyl pressing of &&&&&, which is currently available for purchase. Limited to only 500 copies, the vinyl features the 26-minute mix on one side, with an etched design on the flip. Hippos In Tanks—the label responsible for &&&&&'s digital release—has also confirmed that Arca will deliver a full-length record in 2014. In the meantime, the vinyl edition of &&&&& can be streamed below, and purchased here.
