Regis to release new solo album ‘Manbait’

The Birmingham techno stalwart has an LP coming soon.

From the look of Blackest Ever Black’s website, Regis has a new album on the way. Titled Manbait, it will be Karl O’Connor’s first solo full-length in well over a decade.

Since establishing the influential Downwards label in 1993, Regis has worked with Function and Silent Servant as label, production and DJ collective Sandwell District as well as with Surgeon as British Murder Boys. He has also released three solo albums via Downwards: Gymnastics, Delivered Into The Hands Of Indifference, and 2001’s Penetration.

Details about the album are scarce and it is simply listed as “coming soon” on Blackest Ever Black’s website. The UK label is also set to release a compilation of Regis’ productions as BEB in August. That looks to be the Manbait cover art below.

 

UPDATE
Manbait is a collection of Regis material to be re-released by Blackest Ever Black. The vinyl version will include Regis reworks of the likes of Ike Yard, Dalhous and Vatican Shadow, while original productions such as Blinding Horses and C U 1 will feature. The CD version will feature a handful of extras. Check out the tracklists below. [via Resident Advisor]
