Actress Shares New Single, 'AZD' Album Out Next Week on Ninja Tune

As usual, no one can describe Actress’s work better than he can himself. “Dancing In The Smoke” is, he says, concerned with “that moment in the club, in the side room which is less habituated where the music is more diffused from the main club, smoked out and disorientating.” Already you get some sense of the piece, all angular rhythms, woozy synth pads and disembodied vocal refrains. “The DJ has locked on a groove,” he continues, “and you’re there in your own space pulsing with the music. As the different spaces start to merge and turn with the effects of your prescription for the night, that alien cacophony of lasers and tone trip the buzz for a flight into that kind of euphoria that only spacing to the rhythm of the metropolis can bring.
