Manbait is a survey of Regis' 2010-15 productions and remixes for Blackest Ever Black. Features three previously unreleased tracks: a brand new Regis take on a lost song by his teenage synth-punk group Family Sex, an alternate mix of Tropic of Cancer's 'Plant Lilies At My Head', and a new edit of his own 'Blinding Horses'.
The 2LP edition features 8 tracks, including Family Sex and Tropic of Cancer, and the now rare sought-after Raime, Vatican Shadow and 'Blinding Horses' remixes.
On BEB sticker affixed to the shrink wrap:
"Fuck this shit. I was hoping to see a long-awaited brand new LP. Not a necklace of flashbacks. Fuck BEB. Fuck Regis. Life sucks."
The widescreen melancholia of their 2012 debut, Quarter Turns Over A Living Line, gives way to an urgent and focussed futurism, in the shape of eight fiercely uptempo, minimal, meticulously crafted electro-acoustic rhythm tracks. The DNA of dub-techno, garage/grime and post-hardcore rock music spliced into sleek and predatory new forms.
Unique mix of ambient, industrial, experimental trip hop, jazz and electronica: Formed in a dingy Melbourne warehouse at the turn of the century, Terminal Sound System began as a vehicle for Skye Klein, half of Relapse Records cult doom/noise duo HALO, to explore his interest in experimental electronic music and Dub.
