Regis - Tongue Box Silver Vinyl Edition
Regis
Tongue Box Silver Vinyl Edition
2LP | 2020 | EU | Original (Downwards)
26,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Regis revisits his Blackest Ever Black-era recordings in entirely reworked and remastered versions of perhaps our favourite of all of his recordings, embracing space and subbass with influence from techstep D&B as much as dark ambient and gothic sound design styles. Properly massive, essential gear, highly recommended if yr looking for something to file alongside your T++ and British Murder Boys.

Regis revisits his releases for the dearly departed Blackest Ever Black with a ‘Tongue Box’ of remastered and restructured versions bearing the toned muscle and darkroom workshop atmospheres found in his 2020 debut album ‘Hidden In This Is The Light That Makes You’. The set sees Regis return to a point when his sound had fully shifted from brittle, loopy bangers to a more sensuous, serpentine style embracing space and subbass, in a vital new mutation of UK industrial body musicks.

Restructured versions of modern classics, the T++-like broken roller ‘Blood Witness’ from the ‘In A Syrian Tongue’ 12”, and the snarling post-punk techno swagger of ‘Blinding Horses’ lead to the NIN-like beat-less scape of ‘Blinding Horses (Stable By Mix)’ - exclusive to the set - while he performs back-alley dentistry on the gnashing 16th note arp fangs of ‘Manbait’ with lacerating effect, beside the haunted romantic chamber string sentiments of ‘The Solution’ which could almost come from some Derek Jarman soundtrack, and 2014’s ‘Masterside’ appears remastered to best show off both sides of its swooning and sinuous goth techno silhouette.

Genre:Electronic / Dance
Finally, Regis lets his rhythmic noise opus out into the world, a bruising and hauntingly absorbing album - his first since 2001 - dispatched on his pivotal label; Downwards. On a masterful twenty-year followup to ‘Penetration’, Karl O’Connor yields a definitive solo LP that distills his passions for sonic brutalism and bastardised Chicago tracks with syncopated UK swagger and reverberating warehouse ballistics. Its lip-bitingly gripping effect is testament to a resounding reputation as one of Industrial music’s most influential producers, and sees the artist bring his own influences - from Test Department to Jeff Mills - into line with his potent palette of narcotised tones.

Samuel Kerridge & Taylor Burch
The Other
2LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Downwards)
22,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Sam Kerridge teams up with DVA Damas’ Taylor Burch in ‘The Other’, a narrative-structured collaboration set to an absorbing contrast of seething electronics and technoid impulses riddled by droll vocals in billowing negative space. Opening his sound up to mutual spirits, and allowing more space and time for his sounds to take hold, ‘The Other’ locates a newfound sense of maturity and sensuality in Kerridge’s music. His arrangements here feel more layered and ductile, finely consolidating the gloomy slow pressure of his earliest work for Horizontal Ground with the uptick in pace and rabid energy found on 2017/2018’s ‘The Silence Between Us’ and ‘The I Is Nothing’. The adaptation is necessary as the music now accounts for half of an AV live project with Daisy Dickinson and also needs to accommodate Taylor Burch’s low key vocal delivery. In the process Kerridge is pushed to rethink and more subtly reframe his sound after seven years squashing and pummelling listeners into submission.

Grebenstein & Seefried
Raging Tender
12" | 2019 | EU | Original (Downwards)
12,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
The mercurial, industrial pop fetishism of ‘Raging Tender’ forms the 3rd and most impressive EP from producer Jan Grebenstein and vocalist Christine Seefried for Karl O’Connor/Regis’ Downwards label. Stepping on from 2016’s ‘Strong Proud Stupid and Superior’ LP, Grebenstein’s sound is now tauter, more spacious and seductively strung out, finding a sublime tension between quicksilver slow/fast drum programming and deadpan gothic delivery. Their means of production is still bare-bones minimal in an economical Berlin style that has served the duo very well thus far, from their self-titled debut for Downwards in 2014 thru to more recent outings on experimental D&B labels Horo and Osiris Music UK.

My Disco - Environment Remixes
My Disco
Environment Remixes
12" | 2020 | EU | Original (Downwards)
12,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Downwards’ rum gang of industrial misfits mutate My Disco’s ‘Environment’ album in slow, brutal and hypnotic styles ranging from Karl O’Connor’s smudged gamelan rework as Cub, to a 16 minute stunner by Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement (Prurient & Low Jack). ‘Environment Remixes’ serves to tie up a 10 year loop since Karl O’Connor (Regis) first became rapt with My Disco’s 2010 single ‘Young/You’, which lead to him remixing the Aussie band’s song ‘My Decade’ in 2016, and eventually issue the reverberating clang of their ‘Environment’ LP on his Downwards label in 2019. For the remix suite, they’ve picked a gang of manacled producers to reanimate the album’s cranky mania and classic industrial spirit with suitably bruising results. The swingeing, stygian flow of Karl O’Connor’s Cub remix of ‘Equatorial Rainforest’ returns a big highlight, possibly the project’s very slowest and loaded square between the eyes of early ‘90s Coil and 23 Skidoo, while Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement’s 16 minute take on LP centrepiece ‘Act’ follows that humid line to a frighteningly strong scene of cicadas and crackling neon sleaze sloshed with martial kettle-drum rolls recalling Con Schnitzler’s ‘Conditions of The Gas Giant’, before slipping into the lushest ambient techno mode. Following the rush of his recent records, Sam Kerridge renders the doomy beckon of ‘Rival Colour’ more tentatively, stalked with spare drums and lugubrious bass, and Bristol’s Giant Swan follow a hunch for lurching halfstep on their reduction of ‘An Intimate Conflict’, for Oliver Ho to amp the phosphorus guitar burn of ‘1987’ as Slow White Fall with the sort of noisy conviction that also makes his new album such a zinger.
Slow White Fall - Pushing Through A Wall
Slow White Fall
Pushing Through A Wall
LP | 2020 | EU | Original (Downwards)
17,99 €* 19,99 € -10%
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Industrial changeling Oliver Ho returns to his Slow White Fall alias for a howling and paganistic suite of industrial music in an English medieval Gothic mode channelling Dead Can Dance via Killing Joke, Scott Walker and Godflesh. Slow White Fall is the latest of Ho’s revolving monikers (Broken English Club, Raudive, Zov Zov), and here used to signify a shift into hairier, muscular Industrial music that treads heavily but carefully to the right side of fantasy dramatic, wrought with a finely crafted crudeness and atmospheric finesse that speaks to his decades of crookedly functional electronic production expertise and an enduring fascination with the darkside. Think ritual music for a bacchanal at John Dee’s gaff, or the soundtrack to a plague rave held in 1347.
Mønic - In A Certain Light
Mønic
In A Certain Light
LP | 2020 | EU | Reissue (Downwards)
21,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Electronic / Dance
The weighty and heavily brooding debut album from Simon Shreeve’s Mønic project finally lands on Downwards following releases for Osiris and Tresor and those killer remixes from Burial and Regis. Grey, expansive and low-lit industrial landscapes are the order of the day here, a huge recommendation if you’re into anything from Joy Division to Pan Sonic, Tropic of Cancer to GAS or the rain-soaked zones stalked by Burial and The Bug’s Flame duo, Logos and Karim Maas. Arriving at a time when we’ve long reached saturation point with user-friendly environmental/lifestyle Ambient, ‘In a Certain Light’ offers an anxious counterpoint for late night immersion carefully framed with a cinematic attention to detail in lighting, texture and space worthy of The Cure’s ‘Faith’, the defining aesthetic of the Blackest Ever Black label and Karl O’Connor’s own industrial frameworks.
Slow White Fall - Total EP
Slow White Fall
Total EP
12" | 2019 | EU | Original (Downwards)
14,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Techno mutant Oliver Ho invokes divine noise via distorted guitars, synths and drums with hypnotic industrial psych-drone project Slow White Fall for Regis’ Downwards label. The 30 minute ‘Total’ EP is a naturally extension of Ho’s increasingly noisy forays into industrial musick found in his Broken English Club and Zov Zov outings of recent years. Gnashing right at the biting point, the EP’s five tracks are variously soused in distortion to degrees recalling The VU, Swans, and Bourbonese Qualk, bringing Ho as far as he’s travelled from techno proper and closest to his formative industrial and rock influences. This is Ho at his most stare-down intense and timelessly, narcotically effective.
Ora Iso - Image Certifies
Ora Iso
Image Certifies
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Downwards)
15,19 €* 18,99 € -20%
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Regis’ Downwards label presents an album of heavy hearted industrial songs from Ora Iso, making a kind of windswept, slowed-down and gothic pop variant that’s essential listening if yr into HTRK, Tropic of Cancer or Clay Rendering. Ora Iso are an NYC-hailing band revolving around Indonesian-Australian, Kathleen Malay and New Yorker, Jason Kudo. Building on the rubbly ground of their Bathcat debut for Ba Da Bing!, the duo’s mutual sense of entropy and ennui results in a classically scorched sound in Image Certifies, one laced with scornful sarcasm and a general dissatisfaction with the world, and yet somehow bolstered by the slightest promise of hope.

12" | 2017 | EU | Original (Downwards)

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Sam Kerridge launches a major rethink of his style with the high-velocity tempos and razor-toothed bite of The Silence Between Us.Toiling somewhere between Ueno Masaaki’s Vortices for Raster-Noton, the pitching pelt of La Peste for Hangars Liquides, and the machine convulsions of Somatic Responses, he goes balls-to-the-wall with the breakneck momentum of Possession/Control, harnessing reverse-edited kicks, helter-skelter EBM bass and spectrographic noise ghouls in a surge of searing rave energy.Flipside, those knotty, strobing pulses keen thru empty stomach inversions and bursts of tangled EBM synths on Ascension, which is effectively a snappier edit of the A-side, whilst Radical Possibilities of Pleasure sounds like a field recording from a french hardtek invaded by dildo dibble in choppers and riot gear railing lasers against any unlucky dancers.

Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
The gifted producer behind Mønic and Kryptic Minds returns to Downwards under his own name with a crushingly physical testament to his knowledge of soundsystem dynamics and how to sustain knife-edge atmospheric tension. The Lust Product EP offers four tracks of stare-down halfstep techno and grubby rolige that’s patently a product of so many years manning a DJ booth and dancefloor.
