Press Release :
Taken from his critically lauded album "Loop Dreams" (Unique Records / Basement Digs, 2007), Regal drops another satisfying batch of tunes, with this, his latest 12" single - "The Mack".
Featuring versatile remixes of the title-track by Flevans (Tru-Thoughts / Jack To Phono) & Lack Of Afro (Freestyle) and a brooding remix of "Keep On" by Sydney’s edseven (Straight Up Rec’s), this single is a great showcase for the range of rythyms ‘n’ styles that encompass Regal’s sound right about now.

Flevans kicks off the remixes with a dynamite 3-stage re-work, which builds a lovely tension early-on, before releasing a kick-ass groove and then crazy wild drums ‘n’ percussion for the finale… An amazing track in itself and more-so considering the The Mack’s original layout. A stunning Job!
Lack of Afro goes for the Clavichord jugular & strips down The Mack to a back-alley stand-off, with a crunchy drum-break & minimal arrangements. No glamour here, just raw street-cred.
Edseven represents the local presence on this 12", taking the already dreamy ‘n’ groovy "Keep On" (also from "Loop Dreams") and going deeper with added layers of low-slung bass and fat drums. Snippets of musical landscapes poke through, ala DJ Krush, which results in a heavy addition to the downtempo cannon. Smokin’ Beats for 3am B-Boys. Included here too, is the radio edit of Regal’s original version of "The Mack". Still kickin’-ass, this is a killer Blaxploitation groove - tho’ more a theme for a movie-to-be, rather than a cheesy homage. Funky as Hell, "The Mack" oozes class & delivers the goods.
