Boomkat Product Review:
After Burial’s lead, Regis makes Mønic’s Deep Summer more febrile with a cloven-hoofed rework of the devilish techno roller, Regret Was Never So Sure. No mistake this is some of the strongest work yet on Osiris Music Uk from all involved.
Mønic sets the darkside precedents with Regret Was Never So Sure across the A-side, charging up its nervy, dancing bones with overproof bass surely indebted to his D&B days, before rottie-bark lashes steer it into to the darkest corners of the park, where the sun has gone down, and the rottweiler morphs into cerberus-headed beast that’s fucking coming for ya.
Trust Regis to harness that vibe into his mongrel mutation of UK techno and D&B on the flipside, working uncannily well at either the intended 33rpm, 128bpm original mix resembling his Blood Witness Versions, as well as on 45rpm, which sounds more like a Ruffhouse or Pessimist juggernaut at 180bpm.
Add in Mønic’s super wide ambient halfstepper, Forbidden Memories and you’ve got a real doozy of a 12”.
