Actress, real name Darren Cunningham, and Mount Kimbie’s Kai Campos have teamed up for a single for Ninja Tune.

Featuring Cunningham’s familiar distorted elements, mixed in with Campos’ hypnotic melodies, “AZD SURF” makes for a seamless collaboration.   

For Cunningham, a singular voice in British electronic music, “AZD SURF” is his first new music since the release of his 2020 album, Karma & Desire, which saw guest collaborations from Sampha, Zsela, and Aura T-09.

Mount Kimbie released their third studio album, Love What Survives, in 2017, which featured collaborations with James Blake, King Krule, and Mica Levi. Since then, Campos has curated a DJ-Kicks mix, delivering snapping electro and pounding techno through the same experimental lens as Mount Kimbie’s studio work. 

In 2018, Actress and Mount Kimbie performed a rare NTS show together as part of a Mount Kimbie residency in 2017.
