Welcome to »LXXXVIII« – the ninth Actress album to be created by Actress (Darren Cunningham) and the very first presentation of Actress’ voyage into luxury sonics.
A lifetime in the making, ‘LXXXVIII’ is the culmination of 25 years’ honing mind-shorting, soul-igniting audio infusions for dance floors, rave dens, festivals, and concert halls.

»LXXXVIII« pays dividends to meditate on an instrumental facet of its creation: game theory. Indeed, deep strategic thinking – more readily associated with economics and chess than artistic practice – was fundamental to Actress’ process as »LXXXVIII« was channelled into existence.

»LXXXVIII« includes the recent avant-garde-influenced single »Push Power ( a 1 )«, a track which laid the groundwork for the album, acting as the first move in an intricate chess game. The release follows 2022’s mesmerising »Dummy Corporation«, which placed Actress firmly back in the centre of underground club culture. Prior to that his 2020 album »Karma & Desire« — which saw guest collaborations from Mercury Prize winner Sampha, Zsela and Aura T-09 — was received to widespread acclaim, with The Guardian commenting the album «cements his place as one of the great poets of club culture«.
