Actress (aka UK electronic-music producer Darren Cunningham) has spent the last 13 years subverting conventions and baffling even the most advanced techno heads. With a deftness few can match, Actress submerges his tracks in a mysterious miasma and stealthily blurs genre elements, while intentionally undercutting rhythmic fluidity in order to keep the dance floor off-balance. It’s a courageous approach that left most at Actress’s 2013 Decibel Festival show vexed. His new album, AZD, sounds like his most up-tempo and danceable, but it still reveals an artist constitutionally unable to sound typical. If Eraserhead had a club scene, something that sounds like AZD would be soundtracking it. In a world of interchangeable techno artists, Actress goes out on a precarious limb—and then flips the bird to the uncomprehending. DAVE SEGAL
