REVIEW
By Jenn Pelly on November 5, 2013 at 02:48 p.m.
◊   London electronic producer Actress has announced a new album, Ghettoville. The triple-LP release is out January 28 via Werkdiscs/Ninja Tune.
◊   Ghettoville follows 2012's R.I.P., but according to a press release, it’s really the sequel to Actress’ 2008 debut, Hazyville, “sharing a similar rugged style.” Hazyville will get a remastered vinyl release as part of the Ghettoville box set edition, which also includes a 32-page art book.
◊   The press release for the album is typically cryptic, but it alludes to this being Actress’s last album (or at least, Darren Cunningham’s last under the Actress name). ◊   “Ghettoville is the bleached out and black tinted conclusion of the Actress image”, it opens. “Where the demands of writing caught the artist slumped and reclined, devoid of any soul, acutely aware of the simulated prism that required breakout. Four albums in and the notes and compositions no longer contain decipherable language. The scripts now carry tears, the world has returned to a flattened state, and out through that window, the birds look back into the cage they once inhabited.”
◊   “Spitting flames behind a white wall of silence”, it concludes, “The machines have turned to stone, data reads like an obituary to its user. A fix is no longer a release, it’s a brittle curse. Zero satisfaction, no teeth, pseudo artists running rampant, but the path continues. R.I.P Music 2014.” (http://pitchfork.com/)
Artist Biography by Andy Kellman
◊   The alias of Wolverhampton, England-based producer Darren Cunningham, Actress was credited with some of the least predictable, categorization-defying electronic dance music of the 2000s. Since debuting in 2004 with the No Tricks 12" on his own Werk Discs label, Cunningham juggled a diverse array of inspirations — including early-'80s funk and electro, art rock, raw and classicist house, and noise — while putting a fresh, challenging spin on them. As a result, his productions confounded some DJs while also being devoured by others within the realms of house, techno, and dubstep. Cunningham released a pair of albums, the promising Hazyville (Werk, 2008) and the exceptional Splazsh (Honest Jon's, 2010), and remixed tracks by a select list of fellow producers including Kassem Mosse, Joy Orbison, Alex Smoke, and Panda Bear. At the same time, Werk Discs was one of the most revered dance labels — a trusted outlet for the likes of Lone, Zomby, and Lukid.
◊   2012 Cunningham released his third album under the Actress moniker, titled R.I.P., which was widely praised by critics and fans alike. The same year he collaborated with Japanese artist Yayoi Kasuma for a live music performance at the Tate Modern gallery in London, as well as remixing tracks for John Cale and Kasabian. His fourth release, Ghettoville, was slated to arrive in early 2014.                                  © Photo Actress 11.5. 2013 factmag.com
