Review: Actress – Splazsh
October 17, 2010 § Leave a comment
Darren Cunningham’s 2008 debut Hazyville was a wonderful journey though a myriad of disparate influences, from Detroit techno to glitchy electronica and dubstep. Here we see the Werk Discs chief revisit some of those influences but also tread new ground with his follow up LP, Splazsh. It’s a startling journey: every track on here is worth listening to, digesting, and listening to again. “Hubble” is a neat way to start, taking off where Hazyville left off with warm, luscious pads buried deep beneath a sea of heavy compression.
