Actress’ Mix for Gilles Peterson

In our interview in FADER 67, Darren Cunningham bka Actress told Andrew Field-Pickering, "Francis Bacon said something along the lines of, unless you split the brain in two, it's very difficult to explore the full emotions and be able to replicate that in art." In this mix he made for Gilles Peterson, he does just that, cleaving the visceral from the historical, playing burbly, diamond-like new tracks of his own, and older works by other people that influenced him to get busy on the rack. Not a traditional straight-through mix, the soft-spoken producer and Gilles discuss where he's going between each song, where he fits in in the beatscape, and what goes through his mind when he's making his pretty rhythms. Old man Bacon would likely give him a pound.
