Ninja Tune has announced a new partnership with Werkdiscs, with the former providing the latter with marketing and distribution services. Run by Darren Cunningham, aka Actress, Werkdiscs was founded in 2004 and has since released albums such as Zomby’s ‘Where Were You In 92?’ and Lone’s ‘Ecstasy & Friends’, as well as Cunningham’s own debut, ‘Hazyville’.

However, since Cunningham signed to Honest Jon’s in 2010 for the release of the second Actress album ‘Splazsh’ the company has fallen quiet. The new deal with Ninja Tune will revive Werkdiscs, with plans to release Lukid’s third album ‘Lonely At The Top’ and a sequel to ‘Hazyville’, entitled ‘Ghettoville’, in the works.

To celebrate the new partnership, Ninja Tune and Werkdiscs are giving away a free download of a new Actress track, ‘Metamorphosis’, here.
