Today Werkdiscs announced a marketing and distribution partnership with fellow UK music powerhouse, Ninja Tune, that will likely end the label’s two years of inactivity.
Since 2004 Werkdiscs, the influential electronic label co-founded by UK producer Actress (Darren Cunningham), has operated with the goal of releasing electronic music that didn’t fit the popular conventions of the genre. The label, however, has been largely dormant for the last two years. Apparently things changed while Actress was touring for 2010’s Splaszh, and was inspired by the musicians he met on the road to look for ways to revive the label.
Head over to the Werkdiscs homepage to read more about the partnership, and swap an email address for a new Actress track called “Metamorphosis” and hear Actress’ remix of John Cale’s “Perfection” below.
