Actuality are an Anglo/German duo formed in 1998, comprising Michaela Placzek (arrangements, vocals), and Lee Boyd (music and production).

Actuality work very hard at creating an organic and warm sound using electronic instruments, taking their cue from the work of producers such as phil spector and lee 'scratch' perry, marrying an 'old skool' dubby vibe, abstract sounds, phat basslines and modern dance rhythms.

The first, self-titled album, received an album of the month review in Germany's szene magazine. In February 2002 Actuality were delighted to receive the same accolade in the prestigious future music magazine, who described their music as 'unique and great-sounding'. One of the tracks, 'storm drives horses crazy' was featured on the cover cd of this internationally distributed magazine.
