Editors’ Notes

Splazsh is one of those albums that plays better as an album than as individual songs, giving it a gestalt quality; it's a painting more than a series of brushstrokes. Where Actress' first album, Hazyville, used much of the same vocabulary—an echo of deteriorated rave and ambient influence—Splazsh is a more perfected evolution of that sound. Starting with the near-nine-minute "Hubble" (a song that should by all rights grow tiresome with a persistent four-to-the-floor), there's never a sense of lost energy in the gentle ebb and flow of the track programming. In fact, perhaps part of why this works so well as a cohesive piece is the fact that Actress never seems to make anything longer (or shorter) than it needs to be. There aren't any intentionally DJ-friendly intros or outros, and some perfectly dance floor–friendly selections like "Senorita" are more like tone poems, clocking in at just a few minutes. Whether by virtue of excellent editing, production, or something more ephemeral and indefinable, Splazsh is an immediate classic; it's an expression carving out its own moment in time.

Customer Reviews


Dub-Step hasn't been doing it for me as of late, but this album breathes a breath of fresh air into Dub-Step. I'm even sure I'd define it as that... its a little more melodic. Reminds me a bit of Warp Records stuff. Sort of IDM with a hint of R&B. lol Ill stop now.

I like it a lot

one of the freshest albums to come out of 2010

Actress is great

The only song I don't absolutely love on this album is Let's Fly. Looking forward to Ghettoville.


Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '00s

The alias of Wolverhampton, England-based producer Darren Cunningham, Actress was credited with some of the least predictable, categorization-defying electronic dance music of the 2000s. Since debuting in 2004 with the No Tricks 12" on his own Werk Discs label, Cunningham juggled a diverse array of inspirations -- including early-'80s funk and electro, art rock, raw and classicist house, and noise -- while putting a fresh, challenging spin on them. As a result, his productions confounded some DJs...
