Downwards, the label operated by Karl ‘Regis’ O’Connor, will host one of its irregular clubnights at Berlin’s Berghain on Tuesday 2 October.
Regis and fellow Berlin resident DJ Pete will DJ, as will former Downwards artiste and O’Connor’s erstwhile partner in British Murder Boys, Surgeon, and Blueprint Records boss James Ruskin (who occasionally produces and performs with Regis as O/V/R).
Live performances come from Dominick Fernow’s militant industrial project Vatican Shadow, who Regis remixed on a 12″ for Blackest Ever Black* earlier this year, and Whitehouse’s William Bennett in his “afro noise” solo incarnation, Cut Hands. Cut Hands has a new 12″ single, ‘Black Mamba’, due out later this month, and an album of the same title slated for an Autumn release.
UK-dwellers unable to make it to Germany for this incredible night can console themselves with the fact that both Cut Hands and Vatican Shadow will be performing live in London for Blackest Ever Black’s label showcase at Corsica Studios on October 13.
