Expanded 21st anniversary reissue of of Regis' game-changing debut album, considered THE Brummie techno blueprint, re-built from original stems and including new studio versions and unreleased sequences, remastered and packaged with new artwork.
For this edition the Brum techno overlord has revisited the scene of the crime from original stems and salvaged 8-track tapes. The unyielding results effectively present a doctored version of his seminal – some may say game-changing – record, featuring new studio versions and unreleased sequences. It's basically a stronger, fitter version of his most prized LP, loaded with sounds as brutally functional as the city which birthed them, but redrawn with sharper edges and elbows for 2017 dancers and DJs.
Originally recorded in September 1996 in Room 406, Digbeth, Birmingham – sandwiched between Tony De Vit and Broadcast's recording spaces – O'Connor used one drum machine, one synth and one FX unit to nail home a back-to-basics approach to techno; one inspired as much by the direct immediacy of Chicago house as the febrile DJ sets of Jeff Mills, but also drawing a crucial X factor from his background as a bit of hooligan, with form in a number of post-industrial, EBM and punk units.
