Darren Cunninghams eagerly awaited new album is an adventurous. ultramodern. thoroughly British affair. Determinedly off the map and resistant to pigeonholing. Cunningham is an enigmatic and playful figure. citing Francis Bacon and Monet as inspirations alongside Theo Parrish. Anthony Shake Shakir. Daft Punk. binary codes and numeral systems. and The Avengers. The South Londoners acclaimed debut lived up to its name: a series of dreamlike sketches and ideas. For Splazsh the fog has lifted. the sounds are less submerged than before. but still sticky and close a signature combination of exuberance and introversion. luminescence and puzzlement. Actress has quickly and justly become one of the most respected names in the UKs new dance music underground.
