Press Info (English):
Xen is the latest in a line of uncompromising, forward-thinking releases from the 24 year old Venezuelan artist – aka Alejandro Ghersi – who first started turning heads with his Baron Libre, Stretch 1 and Stretch 2 EPs in 2012, before further wowing with his work on FKA twigs’s EP1 (and then subsequent work this year’s LP1), Kanye West’s Yeezus and his own blistering &&&&& mixtape the following year.

Xen will be available on CD, LP, limited LP edition with bonus 10″ and download, and features stunning artwork from long time Arca visual collaborator Jesse Kanda. A limited edition vinyl format will also be available. Limited to just 500 copies, this special format will be hand-numbered and sealed in black PVC and will also include a bonus 10” record of unreleased Arca material that won’t be available anywhere else, continuing Arca’s tradition of producing highly sought-after vinyl recordings (the recent vinyl version of his &&&&& mixtape sold out within days of going on sale).

Meanwhile, Arca is set to perform a series of North American dates later this month. Tickets for all shows are on sale now, with UK and European shows due to be announced later this year.

 

Press Info (German):
Arca enthüllt erste Details seines langerwarteten Debütalbums. Xen erscheint am 31.10.2014 auf Mute. „Thievery“, ein erstes Stück daraus, ist hier zu hören (siehe unter “Listen”).

Xen erscheint auf CD, LP und Download. Das Cover-Artwork stammt aus der Feder Jesse Kanda, der seit langem bereits mit Arca auf visueller Ebene kollaboriert. Zudem wird es eine auf 500 Stück limitierte, handsignierte und in schwarzes PVC gehüllte Vinyl-Edition geben, die eine weitere 10-Inch mit exklusivem Material enthält – ganz in der Tradition Arcas, seinen Releases weitere Sammlerstücke zu r Seite zu stellen. (die aktuelle Vinylversion seines &&&&-Mixtapes war in wenigen Tagen ausverkauft).

Xen ist die jüngste einer Reihe von kompromisslosen Veröffentlichungen des erst 24-jährigen venezolanischen Künstlers – bürgerlich Alejandro Ghersi – der 2012 mit den EPs Baron Libre, Stretch 1 und Stretch 2 auf sich aufmerksam machte, bevor er mit seiner Arbeit für FKA twigs EP1 (und nachfolgend ihres diesjährigen Albums) und Kanye Wests Yeezus weiter staunen machte. Sein eigenes Mixtape &&&& nicht zu erwähnen.

Zunächst steht eine Reihe von Livedaten in Nordamerika an, die Tickets sind bereits im Vorverkauf. Daten in Europa werden zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt folgen.

out now: Lukid – Crawlers [Liberation Technologies]

Lukid

 

Title:
Crawlers

 

Label:
Liberation Technologies / Mute

 

Cat#:
LTECH009

 

Release Date:
29th September 2014

 

Format:
12″ & digital

 

Tracklist:

Nine

02)
La Cucaracha

03)
The Brick Burner

04)
Born In Bosnia

 

Press Info:
Now a prominent feature of the London scene, Lukid presents a fresh EP on the always innovative Liberation Technologies.

An impressive follow up to his 2012 fulllength Lonely At The Top, the Crawlers EP serves up lofi, danceable electronics that elude genre. Lead track ‘Nine’ may sound familiar to some, as Evian Christ sampled its synths on ‘Propeller’, a track from his 2014 ‘Waterfall’ EP for Tri Angle Records.

Consistent with previous releases on Actress’s Werkdiscs and Lukid’s own Glum imprint, his Crawlers EP intelligently breaks ground on undefined dancefloor territory.

Press Info:
An easy mission for Mr. Hawkinson on Phunkit:
to send you on an analog journey through deep stomping, chordal Techno grounds and burn down your floors!

Hawkinson delivers with his Draisen EP two varied, atmospherically dense originals between warm Techno and melancholic Acid charme. While Mike Wall pushes Draisen into even deeper Techno soundscape, Steinmüller’s floating yet driven version of Restruct completes the four tracker to a wonderful, spheric and powerful package.
