Depending on how you interpret the mysterious press release, this might be the final musical statement by Actress (aka UK electronic music producer Darren Cunningham). If it is the end, the oppressive mood suggests Cunningham isn't feeling very cheerful these days: Ghettoville sounds more like the soundtrack to a mental breakdown than something you'd even consider putting on at a party.
No one was expecting dance floor fillers, but this is particularly dark. Most of the tracks are slow, stumbling hip-hop beats constructed out of samples of scraping and scratching sounds, covered in a haze of hissing noise, with creepy bells providing vague hints of melody. Every drum sample sounds like it's been pitched down to the point where the digital grains are audible, and the whole thing could have been mixed down onto a muddy old tape deck. It's a masterpiece of uneasy listening but would be a lot more digestible had it been trimmed to a manageable length.
