Actress & SHangaan Electro Announce Autumn Show
Technos most fascinating figure Darren J. Cunningham aka Actress goes head to head with the marimba madness that is South Africas Shangaan Electro for a show by Soundcrash in October at Oval Space.
Actress has in the last 5 years of running the Werkdiscs label set himself apart as one of the hottest A&R scouts within his field, having discovered and released some of the most widely talked about artists of the emerging bass generation, namely Disrupt, Zomby, Lukid and Starkey.
As Actress he produced the exceptional Hazyville LP, has produced some amazing remixes and written for the seminal techno imprint Soma Records. More recently his ‘R.I.P’ album landed on Honest Jons, British independent record label created and founded by Damon Albarn.
Shangaan Electro is the high-speed dance phenomenon from South Africa that is rising from streets into clubs, homes and venues all around the globe. The creation of charismatic producer, record label mogul and businessman Nozinja, this is a very contemporary product of Africa. Hailing from rural Limpopo but now based in Soweto, Nozinja saw the chance to update Shangaan music for the 21st Century, replacing its traditional bass/guitar instrumentation with midi-keyboard sounds and repitched vocal samples (in English and seemingly sampled from rave anthems).
