The LP is “a chrome reflected journey into a parallel world.”

Actress will release his next album on Ninja Tune next month.

AZD is the enigmatic UK artist’s fifth album, and the first to be released since 2014’s Ghettoville, and is described as “a chrome reflected journey into a parallel world.”

According to a press release, AZD (pronounced “Azid”) is a “new music system” across 12 tracks, which will also be presented with the album’s debut live show at London’s Convergence festival on March 24.

According to the producer, the show “will be a test frame for linking circuits using various forms of language” such as MIDI and Tikal graffiti code “to create one intelligent musical instrument called AZD”.

“If successful it will produce the first translucent, non-soluble communication sound pill synergised through impressionistic interpretations of technological equipment. This is the music vitamin of the Metropolis.”

AZD is released on April 22 on LP, CD and digital formats. Stream album track ‘X22RME’ below.



Tracklist:

1. NIMBUS
2. UNTITLED 7
3. FANTASYNTH
4. BLUE WINDOW
5. CYN
6. X22RME
7. RUNNER
8. FALLING RIZLAS
9. DANCING IN THE SMOKE
10. FAURE IN CHROME
11. THERE’S AN ANGEL IN THE SHOWER
12. VISA

    Actress drops new single ‘Dancing In The Smoke’

    The latest track to be released from his highly anticipated fifth LP.

    Actress has unveiled his new single, ‘Dancing In The Smoke’.

    Taken from the UK artist’s fifth album, AZD, which is due for release on April 14, the new track is 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.”

    “The DJ has locked on a groove,” continues Actress in the press release, “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.”



    AZD is the follow-up to 2014’s Ghettoville and is described as “a chrome-reflected journey into a parallel world.”

    I say check out his Splazsh and R.I.P. albums if you get the chance. Great, varied albums that show off the guy's talent. I was listening to AZD on my way to a minimal techno night on Saturday, and that album is far more club oriented than what he usually does.

    He's just a producer who is brimming with ideas, and you hear that on his albums. His tracks jolt about between different styles and forms, but they all have his stamp on his tracks.
