Regis Returns to Blackest Ever Black
'The Master Side' is scheduled for full release on November 10.
The two-track release is O’Connor’s first new solo record as Regis in three years and follows a handful of records and mixtapes that he’s shared via the London-based label.
It consists of two versions of “The Master Side.” Version one is described as “oppressive, incisive, EBM-infected techno rollage iron-clad but somehow lithe and loose-jointed with it– inimitable O’Connor gymnastics”; while version 2 is described as broken (glitter)beat, broken dreams.”
The label’s announcement for the 12-inch includes the quote, “The most important jazz album of 1964-65″—which may reference an LP from Chet Baker, a jazz trumpeter whose career was upended by drug addiction.
