Actress – Ghettoville

Actress, aka Darren Cunningham, returns with ‘Ghettoville’, preceded only by a static-ridden transmission: “‘Ghettoville’ is the bleached out and black tinted conclusion of the Actress image… R.I.P Music 2014. Actress”
‘Ghettoville’ is the spiritual sequel to 2008’s ‘Hazyville’, originally released on Actress’s own Werkdiscs label. Chronologically, this follows 2010’s ‘Splazsh’ and 2012’s ‘R.I.P.’ which were both released to critical acclaim on Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz)’s Honest Jon’s label. Heavyweight 180g black triple vinyl includes rough board inner packaging,
and black popset outer sleeve with die cut (square) foil block. Side F features artwork etching. Actress’s debut album ‘Hazyville’ will be remastered and released for the first time on white vinyl (with artwork etching on side F) as part of a beautifully crafted ‘Elephant’-skinned box set edition of ‘Ghettoville’, which comes complete with a 40 page artbook, the vinyl format of ‘Ghettoville’, and CD versions of both releases. Fans of Actress include Damon Albarn, Zomby (with whom Actress has collaborated), Thom Yorke, Flying Lotus, Benji B, Gilles Peterson, Four Tet, Panda Bear, Oneohtrix Point Never, Floating Points and many more. He has also remixed tracks for Radiohead, Kasabian, Alex Smoke, Tom Trago, Joy Orbison, Kode 9, John Cale, Panda Bear, Love Supreme, Teengirl Fantasy, Terence Dixon, Legowelt, and Moire, amongst others.
