Mount Kimbie and Actress Collaborate
UK electronic artists Actress and Mount Kimbie’s Kai Campos have collaborated on the single “AZD SURF”, now available via Ninja Tune. Featuring Actress’ AKA: Darren Cunningham distorted elements, mixed in with Kai Campos’ unique melodies.
“AZD SURF” is Actresses’ fiest new music since the release of his 2020 album Karma & Desire in which we saw guest collaborations from Sampha, Zsela and Aura T-09. More recently Actress has featured in a Patta produced 4 part film by Mahaneela and Steve McQueen, soundtracked an installation with Actual Objects called Grey Interiors and remixed tracks for Joji, Perfume Genius, Tirzah, The Cinematic Orchestra, Soccer Mommy and Carmen Villain.
Mount Kimbie, released their acclaimed 3rd studio album ‘Love What Survives’ in 2017, which featured stand-out collaboration with the likes of James Blake, King Krule and Mica Levi. Since then they have featured on Slowthai’s ‘TYSON’ album, whilst Kai curated a DJ-Kicks mix which offered a prismic look at Berlin minimalism, snapping electro and pounding techno through the same restless experimental lens as their studio work.
Actress and Mount Kimbie have a long standing history and appreciation of each other’s work. In 2018 they embarked on a B2B tour and performed a rare NTS show together as part of Mount Kimbie’s residency in 2017.
