The Regis remix is a blindingly good track. Continuing in the vein of his current trend of building techno sounds based on old industrial and post punk records, he applies scattered broken beats with noisy lo-fi hisses, heavily processed wood chipper effects and evocative, mournful female vocal loops. The bass line is gritty to the bone, and the plethora of echoes, effects and static noises only add to the gloomy atmosphere only a long time veteran like Regis can come up with Awesome!

Not really a quantum leap when compared to his recenter output on Blackest Ever Black, but a nuance or two darker than his Sandwell District releases or the C U B project. Although we've been getting a ton of this hissing industrial tinged techno recently, it takes more than just a bunch of field recording, dub techno percussion and windy electronic sweeps to forge a great track.

And Karl O'Connor does just that. The original was already a massive tune in its own right, with massive broken beats, distorted hip hop drum loops (think Speedy J circa A Shocking Hobby), and nervous pierces throughout, topped off with eerie female vocals. Regis takes the core elements, effectively reapplies the vocal for a more dance floor friendly approach. Still muddy and filthy as the original, but more along the lines of his In A Syrian Tongue EP. Great stuff from both T47 and the dark baron himself!
