Following on from his stunning High Tech High Life and self-titled albums in 2012, 1991 returns under the MCMXCI mode for a raspin' raw techno blast on Skogen, Flickan och Flaskan ("Wine, Women, and Food"), the first vinyl release on the promising Opal Tapes imprint. Sharing more in common with Jamal Moss at his maddest, Regis in full swing circa '97 or Unit Moebius as we'd imagine them every day, the young Swede bucks all expectations with five tracks of blistered machine drum jack, overdriven to fuck and liable to take your eyebrows off. It's funky as hell and noisy as sin and does it with so much more swerve, sexiness and off-the-cuff cool than so many boneheaded, funkless techno types we don't care to mention. Basically, it pushes all the right buttons and then ends with Huerco S' lovely new age reduction. Limited to 500 copies -- big recommendation for the noise techno set.
