"Speak To Me" absorbs your room's ambience like an amoeba wrapping itself around it's prey - thick, dense dance music which transmutes with the dynamism of a geriatric 'Quick Change' artist. Fast tempo'd slow evolution of simplistic noise events held in a solid unbending Roman-road-straight course. Side two and it's 'here we go' with "Model Friendship". Again this is an unstoppable force, driving onwards through almost indiscernable colour-changes, and if you happen to think you're an immovable object, it's gonna bear down on you and put that hypothesis to the test. "Perspex" follows after a sudden deafening silence - drum rhythm is more mature here, and indeed the building-block sound itself seems to have moved a step further. Stripped down, this is amazingly simplistic and deliberately naive music - but overdriven to the point where it becomes something far beyond the sum of it's parts. Hardly surprising REGIS have made such a strong impact on the Hardcore House scene.

Originally reviewed for Soft Watch.

When it came out it only resembled Axis "Step to Enchantment" or Dave Clarkes "Red 3"...unprecedented stubborn loops that kick like hell. A Side was covered in the most silly of ways by Alan Oldham a few times, he called his "composition" "London kills"- kind of lame. Regis then also made a rather solid track for Alans Pure Sonik label.

Just when you think you've grown out of hard techno, "Speak to Me" makes you feel like hugging the speakers like a 19 yr. old raver again.
