Actress brings discord and ambience to El Club

by

comment
Maybe it’s mostly ironic that British electronic golden child Darren J. Cunningham works under the pseudonym Actress — or maybe it’s totally fitting for his uniquely curated aesthetic marriage of discord and ambience.

The 37-year-old Werkdiscs co-founder delivers a hauntingly cosmic journey into what feels like a paradise or apocalyptic paradigm on AZD, his fifth studio record released earlier this year. Expect a raw onslaught of sonic fog and bass beats, best suited for battling inner turmoil and dancing, respectively.

Cunningham will perform at El Club on Friday, Aug. 25. Doors open at 9 p.m.; 4114 Vernor Hwy., Detroit; 313-436-1793; elclubdetroit.com; Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 day of show.
