As founder of Birmingham label Downwards and revivified as a member of depressive collective Sandwell District, Regis has left an unremittingly bleak mark on twenty years of electronic music. Tonight, he headlines the most floor-friendly contribution to PAN_ACT, the ongoing festival organized by Berlin-based experimentalists PAN and the Issue Project Room. Also featured are Lee Gamble, who in 2012 frankensteined a homage to UK jungle using his collected cassettes, and Laurel Halo, whose skittish techno productions carry as much emotional depth as her unadorned voice. The weird part? It’s all going down in a Chinese super buffet.
