Though we here at XLR8R HQ were elated to have Werkdiscs label boss and resident Ninja Tune experimentalist Actress helm this week's exclusive podcast, the mix was noticeably devoid of the DJ/producer born Darren Cunningham's own productions. The London artist didn't tease a single clip from his upcoming Ghettoville album throughout the tracklist, but he's since made up for that lack of new material, allowing one of the record's dense and mesmerizing cuts to be streamed in full. "Rap," Cunningham's "strangely haunting and utterly transfixing" new track, hit NPR's website today as part of its latest All Songs Considered feature, here. The song can also be heard in its entirety below, before Ghettoville drops on January 27 via Ninja Tune.
