Boomkat Product Review:
Superb debut play from NYC's Arca for his home city's UNO imprint. With considerable appreciation for simulated hyper-space and holo'ed-out Hip Hop aesthetics, 'Stretch 1' is one was of the weirdest, most compelling contributions to that post-it-all Pop/R&B nexus also inhabited by Physical Therapy, Evian Christ, Fatima Al Qadiri, Kingdom, Holy Other an' all. Sampled classics from Blackstreet to Timbaland and Baby Dee lend ghostly traces of emotion to his brittle, bedroom-baroque inversions, and like the best of the aforementioned artists, he applies a wry reconfiguration of intent and context that's pushing the rightest buttons right about now. Really feeling this.
