Raw Trax 2

Time to get up close and nasty with Surgeon and his Raw Trax. Straight-up heavy-banging techno recorded direct to tape in the studio, using just a single synth and a single drum machine (these were the PIN Electronics Portabella and the Roland TR-909, gear-heads). The four cuts assembled on Raw Trax 2 have made a few appearances in Surgeon DJ sets, but now you can have them for yourself.

Raw Trax 1

Time to get as pure and direct as possible with Surgeon and his Raw Trax. These vivid cuts were recorded direct in the studio (no overdubs) using one synth and one drum machine only (the PIN Electronics Portabella and the Roland TR-909 if you want to know). These are total no-nonsense super-techno trax from a master of the form, released in a suitably raw sleeve by Dynamic Tension.

Luminosity Device

Accomplished techno man Surgeon aka Anthony Child returns with Luminosity Device, a title that sounds like a verbose homage to lightbulbs until you learn it really refers to the Tibetan Book of the Dead. Might be a bit more spiritual, then. These are intense modular techno tunes with excellent sequencing and the sensitive (and sensible) live editing of a disciplined DJ, not a tedious bedroom eurorack jammer. This Surgeon fellow seems to know what he’s doing.

The Transcendence Orchestra
Modern Methods For Ancient Rituals

Through a vast array of instruments and processes, in a setting designed to evoke transcendental energies, Anthony Child and Daniel Bean have conjured up a remarkable torch bearer of deep listening. It's a slowly shifting, drone wash of texture and growth that will definitely appeal to fans of Eno, Laraaji and Natural Snow Buildings.

Convenience Trap

Surgeon’s burrowing into the depths of composed-on-the-fly live hardware techno has been going further and further recently. The four tracks you’ll find here on Convenience Trap have grown out of these explorations, so they are extra direct in their power-rhythm attacks on the listener. Fierce and firm Surgeon sound, as ever. 12” EP on Dynamic Tension.

GNOD & Anthony Child
Behind The Lids

Anthony Child AKA Surgeon was a fan of Manchester’s Gnod for a long time, finally got in touch and began a small collaboration. Noisy, droning pieces that show Gnod’s krautrock influences and mixed with Surgeon’s modular dirt shift it from a meer lunging soundscape to a tense atmospheric work.
