The ever-influential and ever-evolving UK musician Regis, aka Karl O’Connor has been producing innovative sounds since the mid 1990’s. Pioneering the “Birmingham sound” alongside his business and artistic partner Anthony Child, aka Surgeon with their label, Downwards Records the two have long time standing in the electronic music scene. The label was established in 1993 in Birmingham and some of the first music to be released on this label was O’Connor’s own. His EP’s, Montréal and the Application of Language had a stark and unique sound but as time progressed, Regis found himself departing from a minimalism and creating more complex and experimental sounds. The record label would go on to release a series of groundbreaking 7” singles in 2000 and Regis’ own LP, Againstnature. The following year, O’Conner released Penetration, which progressed his unique sound even further and influenced dance music on a whole. The creation of the British Murder Boys along with Surgeon brought a whole new sound to the scene and the duo playing live sets that dabbled in harsh noise and experimental digital sounds. Regis continues his career currently by working with a broad spanning array of artists in many forms of coloration.
