As an actress you go in and learn a part, someone’s written a script for you, you learn the part and add different facets to it, you add your character to the role … A lot of that is me rearranging stuff or bending it into what comes out of me. So it is playing a role … again, going back to Detroit techno, I might add a Kevin Saunderson signature, add a bit of Juan Atkins’s signatures here and there, but it has to have my character.

Actress, aka Darren Cunningham

In preparation for his forthcoming and last album Ghettoville, here are my two favorite Actress tracks to date.  

  1. Caves of Paradise
  2. The Lord’s Graffiti

“Spitting flames behind a white wall of silence.  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.”

Art is never done. He’ll just be back in a new alter-ego.
