Kanye West‘s Yeezus collaborator and electronic producer Arca has just unveiled an EP of original material, along with some mind-bending artwork, helpfully titled &&&&&.

The enigmatic producer lays down some hip-hop heavy, ominously sparse beats on &&&&& meanwhile making sure to include influences from the wider realm of electronic production, most notably Aphex Twin, whose terrifying sample-based sounds can be felt in Arca’s use of acid synths and bass-heavy vocal sampling. &&&&& is an experimental and brave piece of work through which Arca shows his ability to produce a wide range of uniquely forward-thinking music without the need to accompany other artists and their visions.
