A mixtape by Regis, Hidden Summer
OK, so yes, this, technically, was shared last Summer. Still I’ve only just discovered it, and it is currently Summer – in fact London is suffering in an extended heatwave right now, and us London sorts go all sorts of crazy in the heat.
Downwards and Regis need little introduction at this point in their history and career – both are staples of the British electronics underground.
A choice calibre of 12 tracks lay in wait in Karl O’Connor’s Hidden Summer mix tape – The Jesus and Mary Chain, Coil, Current 93, The Cocteau Twins, Einsturzende Neubauten, Death In June all feature.
