Review: "Learning" is four tracks of typically disciplined but rocking Surgeon gear as you might expect from the Dynamic Tension label. As with many of the releases on the label, the four cuts investigate different aspects of the same theme, which is to say that there are sounds and grooves that are common to the four tracks, but as a whole each track sounds very different.

Review: Surgeon's huge techno hit "La Real" gets a welcome repress. Originally inspired by the Spanish club of the same name, this mega-selling single developed a new sound in techno at the time that was then lazily (and usually badly) copied by many producers. Always a destroyer in a club, the "max" cut from Dubplates and Mastering gives it an edge that makes it cut through any mix, and it never fails to get feet moving.

Review: Hot on the heels of Surgeon's recent smash on Counterbalance, "Floorshow Part 1", we have the second instalment...called, not surprisingly, "Floorshow Part 2". Another blinder this one, and again pushing his sound into new territories. Across the four tracks on this 12" we are presented with an eclectic but ultimately coherent selection of styles. A1 perhaps hints strongest at his recent fascination with grime and dubstep styles (which anyone who has seen him DJ recently will have witnessed), utilising as it does a sub-lo style digi-bass set against a classic Surgeon groove. The urgency is picked up on A2 which is a solid jack track, Chicago style, complete with razor-sharp edits. On the flip is a heavy DJ Skull-style shuffler, but the real surprise is saved for the closing track which combines bleeping melodies a la LFO with moody strings and crunchy filtering to create a classic middle of the night moment...Four cuts of techno perfection from an artist that refuses to settle for anything less than the best and who is constantly refining his style and incorporating new influences, rather than jumping on the latest 'cool' sound...

Review: It's been some 19 years since British techno mainstay Surgeon released his debut album, Communications. Here it gets a deserved reissue in freshly re-mastered form, with Anthony Child's immaculate loop jams sparkling like never before. In hindsight, it was the album that defined his formula, and while later explorations were even more forthright, there's plenty of robust, driving, angular fare alongside the deeper, more melodious efforts that marked out his early work (see the rolling organs of "Wave", or the intelligent techno lushness of "Syllable"). That it still stands up as an album is testament to the quality of Childs work, not to mention his unique musical vision.

  1. Fixed Action Pattern

Review: ** REPRESS ** It seems like the last few months of 2014 are going to be quite big for a newly bearded up Surgeon with a series of enticing looking reissues of 90s material under the SRX banner due to commence soon, as well as an incoming British Murder Boys retrospective on DNS. First up, the UK techno legend makes his debut proper on Token with Fixed Action Pattern, a two-track 12? of distorted, broken beat techno tailor-made for the Belgian label. Essentially two variants of the same track, the A Side original is exactly the sort of searing, peak time wall shaker you'd expect when Surgeon meets Token, and it's complemented nicely by a B Side dub version that the label quite aptly compare to Lee Scratch Perry dabbling in industrial electronics.

Review: The SRX label is a new endeavour from the increasingly shaggy bearded techno icon Surgeon, with six planned releases of his early, rare and unreleased works pooled from the original DAT tapes he rediscovered earlier this year. Working closely with long term mastering companion Christoph Grote-Beverborg of D&M Berlin, the series promises much on the basis of this inaugural edition which features material originally released back in 1994 as the Magneze 12? on Downwards. Newly titled the Surgeon EP, all four tracks naturally resonate with the sort of powerful loop based techno Downwards were pioneering at this time and expect to hear them in your dark basement of choice over the coming months ("Atol" is a particular highlight). Extra praise to NYC-based Common Name agency for the sublime sleeve design on these too.

Review: A fifth saunter through the '90s archives of Anthony Child arrives courtesy of the man's own SRX label, presenting some prime Surgeon material newly remastered by Dubplates & Mastering engineer Christoph Grote-Beverborg. As the title suggests, this 12" draws from Childs' techno experiments circa 1995 and Surgeon fanatics should focus on the two variations of "THX 1139" that originate from a limited and highly prized white label. Complementing these is the pounding minimalist loop techno of "Fivo" and "Paggo" with this latter track sounding so very clean in comparison to the scratchy Youtube videos for its original 12" release on a split with Funk D'Void.

Review: Anthony Child graces us with some exclusive unreleased material for one of the most seminal periods, not just within his career but for techno in general. From the same era that spawned classics such as "Badger Bite" and "Magneze" come six more finely executed scenes of sheer naked aggression. Undoubtedly influenced by the second wave of the Motor City at the time, namely Jeff Mills and Robert Hood; these tracks are still undoubtedly Child's own. Still, credit where credit's due; "Spider", "Lash Lite" and "IT-2" wear the M-Plant influence firmly on their sleeve with their entrancing synth stabs and claps on the kick. "Hard" and "Zilla" follow the instruction book for relentlessly hard grooves heard on Mill's Waveform Transmissions series. Essential listening.

  8. BDF-521 (7:03)
Review: Anthony Child claims that the inspiration for his seventh artist album came from using hardware to receive transmissions from far-flung galaxies. He then hooked up with astrophysicist Dr Andrew Read - a former collaborator - to work out the bewildering track titles. That's the concept. The reality is that From Farthest Known Objects is a dense, grainy work. It feels like Child has deconstructed or in some more extreme situations has hacked away at tropes like minimalism, clicks and cuts and dub step to reveal an inner, hidden world. On the first few tracks, this alternate reality resounds to a sluggish pace, amid the crackle and groan of cleaved percussion and tortured subs, but it gradually comes round to stepping, broken beat techno and lunging rhythms. That these also descend into pulverising walls of white noise and nausea-inducing frequency shifts at times also serve as a reminder that Child has tuned into something other or inner-worldly.

Played by: Plant43, THE EXALTICS
Review: Here's something to quicken the pulse of any dedicated techno fan: a first new album from Anthony Child in Surgeon mode for five years. Predictably, From Farthest Known Objects is a strong set, with the veteran noisemaker delving deep into his collection of analogue hardware to deliver a set that pops and whizzes with far-sighted intensity. Perhaps the album's most impressive feature is it's wonky melodic appeal, with the Birmingham-born producer delivering fizzing, intergalactic refrains that sound like they were created on broken space hardware. While the rhythms are sometimes as dense and full-throttle as you'd expect, he also doffs a cap to Drexciyan electro, and the kind of distorted, hard-to-describe grooves that were once a hallmark of Autechre. It's a blend that works wonderfully well.

Played by: Vidinovski
Review: One reissue for the heads right here! Some sturdy remakes of tracks from Anthony Child's 1998 album Balance, and they're all as fierce as you'd imagine. "Box (Version II)" is a relentless thrasher with walls of muted snares. "Set One (Version II)" is typical Surgeon; a grating body basher with an offbeat that eventually locks into the 4/4 as all hell breaks loose! Scorn's Mick Harris gives "Dialogue" a typically sinister overhaul; it's a stunning experimental soundscape with a dense and persisting sub bass supporting some seriously futuristic glitches.

Review: To commence their 20th birthday celebrations, British techno imprint Blueprint has naturally turned to some of their pals for fresh material. Thus, we get Search Deep Inside Yourself, Surgeon's first appearance on James Ruskin's imprint for 19 years. The Birmingham producer naturally rises to the occasion, surging between metallic loop-jams ("Inside"), bleep-heavy broken techno brilliance ("Deep"), and surprisingly warm, tribal-enthused techno anthems ("Search"). Arguably best of all, though, is closer "Yourself", which sounds like Jaydee's "Plastic Dreams" after 20 years on crack, several spells in jail, and a brutal gang beating. Sure, there are few surprises, but when does Surgeon ever disappoint? You know the drill.
