Regis – Speak To Me 12″ – Downwards

Aesthetically apparently a studied exercise in subtle imperfections, the intentionally distressed full grey cover gives way to slightly mottled label art. All this could be a nod to the mention on the rear that indicates: “both tracks recorded 29/11/1994 onto a Philips pocket memo 596.” Indeed, this is a reissue of 2 of the 3 tracks on Karl O’Connor‘s debut 1995 “Montreal” EP, which was actually released on the same imprint back then.

This package certainly makes some kind of commentary on the technologically progressive nature of techno as well as the importance of purity of fidelity and the timelessness of pure industrial music. That aside, the two tracks here are punishing, drifting techno loops that will appeal to fans of Regis and his cohorts: Surgeon, James Ruskin, Sandwell District, Function
