British techno icon Karl O’Connor will release In A Syrian Tongue – his first solo EP under the Regis moniker in 10 years – via Blackest Ever Black this summer.
Following the recent The Sorrow Of Two Blooms EP from Tropic Of Cancer (aka Camella Lobo and Juan Mendez), the fourth release from London based imprint Blackest Ever Black again delves into the rich vein of talent contained within the Sandwell District collective. In A Syrian Tongue features two solo tracks, namely “Blood Witness” and “Blinding Horses”, and a third, live edit of “Blood Witness” produced in collaboration with Mick Harris (aka Scorn).
Whilst the first two releases on the imprint, both from Raime, explored murky, experimental territory, and the Tropic Of Cancer EP was coated in a hypnotic guitar driven fuzz, this 12″ sees Regis indulging in some punishing breakbeat techno.
In A Syrian Tongue will be released in mid August 2011. The first 500 12″s will be housed in a printed sleeve.
