Actress returns with his forthcoming album, LXXXVIII. The album will be available on deep blue 2LP, crystal clear 3LP (with bonus 88 vinyl), and CD via Ninja Tune. Working with elements of techno, electro, R&B and concrète, electronic luminary Darren Cunningham aka Actress has patented a sound that’s instantly recognisable, impossible to emulate and responsible for some of the most beloved electronic albums of recent times. Many have placed on numerous publications' end-of-year lists including: Pitchfork's "100 Best Albums of the Decade So Far", The Guardian, Bandcamp, Bleep, FACT, Resident Advisor, Vinyl Factory, Dummy, The Wire and more as well as charting in the UK, US and Europe. LXXXVIII incorporates the game of chess both thematically and artistically, as seen in the track titles corresponding to moves on a chess board and with Actress noting that “different tracks elicited different responses & determined the move they proposed back to me.” “Brings a deeply twisted nostalgia to the techno and house of decades past” - The New York Times “Conveying an elegance and beauty that only Actress can" - DJ Mag
