The London-based artist's first two albums as Actress, 2008's Hazyville and 2010's Splazsh, sounded like mid-1980s house and techno collaged together and played on a radio from under the freeway. Half of his newest, . doesn't even have beats. Listening to him discuss his process making it- which included reading John Milton, philosophizing about death, and smoking weed- you'd think he was a PhD candidate. is a deliberately uncoordinated album. Rhythms, basslines, and melodies slip in and out of line with each other.

Track Listing. by Actress released in 2012 via Honest Jon's. Genre: Experimental. The innovation on . is to put as much effort into making things clean as making them dirty, and the result is a sense of - . Actress isn't your regular techno producer, if you can call him that at all. The founder of Werk Discs has flitted between electro, hip-hop, house and techno over the past eight years, finding something close to a home in the smoke-filled recesses of some lost Underground Resistance bunker. Actress records have always been a bit of a journey, but it's never felt as literal as on . which stumbles and fumbles through the dark, finding occasional pockets of light and life. The record is ordered with remarkable care, starting off slow with the more ambient title track and Ascending before coalescing into something recognizably alive with Marble Plexus. Actress: . Where Hazyville and Splazsh easily submitted to distraction or long passages of singular occupation, shows Actress now fully in control and directing with ease ideas that have previously come together as instances within a much vaguer whole. In this, his third album, his music has significantly improved in its definition: while much of what drew people to his previous work was a willingness to be goaded and surprised by its unpredictability, theres a relative lack of awkwardness in s progression, both among the tracks and in the balance of sounds found within each of them

  • Gagas
My copy sounds great, not much surface noise that i noticed.
  • Iseared
Five years later, this one hits me. Another commenter said it's a "listening" album in that you need to sit down and focus on it. I think it is more striking when it creeps up on you and into your subconscious ear. Since there is no normal, pronounced beat, focused listening feels too forced for this one. Your ear needs to lose track of what it expects to hear and some type of distraction helps this one hit on a deeper level of listening.
  • funike
solid release. great artwork too. anyone got any ideas what the cover look like?? reminds me of something and i can't quite put my finger on it. it looks like those weird shapes that u can make on windows paint..
  • Ffleg
It's one man kneeling, and holding his hands in a prayer-like fashion.
  • Use_Death
it's always reminded me of anal to be honest <3
  • Gaxaisvem
Looks like LKJ's Bass Culture album cover, to me :
  • Vosho
when i first saw the cover i thought its a tangram shape but, really cant figure out the symbolism behind that
  • Vit
Looks like the cubism version of Plastikman done by Picasso
  • Maveri
Personally, it reminds me of Jacob Epstein's "Rock Drill" sculpture:'s something about the structure of the shapes...
  • Rocksmith
Actress' masterpiece: "at least 10 words must be entered" - Discogs
  • Ger
Hands down the best Actress album to date.

So it's been just over a year since i bought this last record store day and added the release to the discogs database. Now this album is something that i don't listen to particularly often, but when i do i find myself having to sit down and listen to it from start to finish, often smiling to myself once it has come to an end. To echo previous comments this is definitely a 'listening' album rather than an in-cohesive collection of songs or dj tracks - and a great listening experience at that.
I found a second hand but mint copy of this in my local record shop. Not being familiar with Actress' other work, the one exception being the remix of Panda Bear in Bleep 100 of 2011, I passed it up a few times. But after reading these reviews here I decided it to pick it up and boy am I glad I did. If you take the recent "warehouse" sound where the left-fields of techno and UKG merged a couple of years back, then play through a lens of Basic Channel-esque treatment (fuzz and atmosphere, less is more, implied rather than explicit tempos) then maybe you get somewhere close to what is going on here. And anyone who likes Burial must hear "Caves of Paradise". thank you Actress, and thank you fellow Oggers.

Going into the new album by Actress with certain expectations is a mistake. After Darren J. Cunningham‘s release on Honest Jon’s Records, Splazsh (2010), one may be predisposed to want to hear even more experimental beats paired with, what the current music scene throws under an umbrella term, bass music. Instead, the mysteriously titled third full-length release, R.I.P, offers an almost beatless series of vignettes and possible studies of truly experimental nature. It’s as if Cunningham turned off the beats on purpose. But don’t misinterpret that last statement. The rhythm is still there, lurking just beneath the lo-fi subterranean grimy techno pulse. But the gaping dark hole left by the [seemingly] missing kick drum is sucking in all of the remaining sound, with a gated dynamic thump. The fifteen pieces on the album (ranging from 30+ seconds to 6 minutes in length) all carry a murky atmosphere of slowly molten rubber, as the lazily morphing samples drip and burn through the foundation of each track.R.I.P is clearly a listening album. One in which you can lose yourself completely, among the psychedelic passageways and semi-liquid builds. The fabric of the structure breathes and sighs, gasping at the organic matter surrounding its boundaries. The induced experience has a potent opiate feel, as your mind struggles to stay focused on the imagined and reality. Inspired by John Milton‘s epic 17th century poem, ‘Paradise Lost’, concerning the story of the Fall of Man (you know, the one with Adam and Eve, the fallen angel Satan, and the expulsion from the Garden of Eden), Actress explores themes of life, death, and religion. These pseudo-concepts are probed through track titles like “Holy Water”, “Serpent”, “Tree of Knowledge”, “Caves Of Paradise” and “The Lord’s Graffiti”. But don’t let these prospects turn you off – if you’re religion-averse, forget about the titles and simply enjoy.With R.I.P, Cunningham moves even further into the electronic experimental arena, dominated by the likes of sonic architects like Pan Sonic, Oval, Andy Stott, Oneohtrix Point Never, and Demdike Stare. I managed to miss Actress’ performance at MUTEK last year, so I’ll have to make up for my mistake in a few weeks, when he’ll be playing live at Decibel Festival‘s XLR8R Showcase on Friday night, along with Teengirl Fantasy, Gulls, and Shawn Reynaldo. Fans of “perpetually-in-flux-adroit-bass-music” will be delighted with this new direction in the world of post-Burial, post-Zomby, and post-Shed sound. For more experimental beats, be sure to pick up Actress’ debut, Hazyville (2008), released on his very own, Werk Discs.

R.I.P is fantastic. Honestly, without any standout "dj" tracks, I wasn't initially convinced I needed to own this. But...It's an amazing album. It's not just a collection of tracks. R.I.P is a cohesive flow of interesting musical ideas. I wish the world could just slow the fuck down so we can enjoy this album for the next five years instead of just a few months. You know what I'm talking about. (Right?) There's so much music being released constantly now, it's more difficult to be intimate with select releases. Albums of R.I.P's caliber could make a bigger impression and influence more artists if there was more S P A C E available for its contemplation. I hope it stays in rotation and steadily builds an audience.No traditional dj tracks on this one (except for "The Lord's Graffiti" and "IWAAD"?) but I'll be playing a few tracks out anyway since I play ambient synth tracks whenever the fuck I feel like it.Another great release for 'adventurous' djs...!Thank you for the HOT album, Cunningham.
  • Wire
I hear you on the pace of releases. I feel like people can't digest something without immediately speculating about the follow-up or remixes. Just chill out and absorb things...
  • Wrathshaper
Just picked up a brand new sealed vinyl copy of the album and the needle is jumping all over the place on the last track on side C. Is this happening with anybody else?
  • Humin
Interesting. I wonder if any others will have the same issue?
having the same issue. last track on side C, like you said. my needle is just jumping forward randomly, skipping large portions of the song. may be manufacturing error since you're having the same problem on the same track.
  • Grotilar
No problem on mine.
  • Meri
Thanks for the replies. I said I'd ask as it wasn't happening with any other records, but I'd say the anti-skate could do with being calibrated again.
  • sunrise bird
Mine plays fine
  • Anayaron
have you ever calibrated your anti-skate knob on your turntable?
  • Yalone
Mine's fine too.
  • Malarad
My cartridge, an Ortofon Alpha (Ortofon 510MkII in reality), isn't regarded as a good tracker and didn't have any problems with this record.
