Actress, R.I.P.
2012 | Label: Honest Jon's Records / Finetunes

With a sound that’s nearly as heady as its concept – “a conceptual arc taking in death, life, sleep and religion” – Actress’s third album burrows its way into your brain and stays there long after you hit stop. If 2012 was the Year of EDM, R.I.P. signals a return to Intelligent Dance Music. And not the bloodless kind that’s more concerned with plugins than an actual pulse. More like an elegantly designed surrogate… read more »

Goodness

I'm going to agree with some of you and admit this is a hard one to swallow. I won't agree so far to say that it is a bad work. I think for me I get enjoyment from this because I am a music producer and I can hear what sonic experiments are taking place. I really like the warmth of this and the experimentation of creating claustrophobic nightmares and tickling buzzes, windings and chopping audio levels. It kinda works for my brain, when wanting a late-night escape from the NORM. I just don't know how well something like this can be received by the general public...then again I do not think the artist or label are concerning themselves with that. For them, this is not the definition of success. Good work, good programming and brave moves away from the candy-assed dancehall vibe you all love.

Another brilliant outing by Actress. Very few artists put out such imaginative and unique electronic music of this quality, so it's something to be cherished. The reviews here are way off base and seem to come from people who aren't very literate in this genre.

Huh?

eMusic pick. Lauded in reviews across the web. So I'm checking this out and don't see the appeal. I'll save my 15 downloads for something else this month.

Who Is…Darling Farah

By Philip Sherburne, Contributor

That the electronic-music producer Kamau Baaqi, aka Darling Farah, is just 20 years old and has an album and three EPs to his name may be unusual, but it's hardly unprecedented. The last couple of years have produced a bumper crop of fresh-faced talent, from Nicolas Jaar to Porter Robinson to Madeon. What's notable is the fact that Baaqi discovered electronic dance music while living in the United Arab Emirates. "I moved to the Middle East… more »
