Developing his hardware improvisation over the last two decades Surgeon has decided to grace us with some of the fruits of his many labours. Taking some of those themes or ideas that he has perfected and utilised in live settings and laying them out into these four tracks. Have you just got into modular stuff… got some catching up to do.
8/10 Ant Staff review, 20 October 2016
The mighty Surgeon unleashes four no-nonsense, eyes down, thumping techno cuts on his own Dynamic Tension imprint. Distilling techniques and inspiration from his live performances into his studio work, he’s a true master of large scale electronic sound that works on both heads and feet. He’s torn the shit out of innumerable dancefloors over his career, so it’s safe to say he know’s a thing or two about how to make bodies move while minds ride the skies.
‘Bland Ambition Pt. 1’ has galloping, chunky kicks at its foundation, with a very satisfying synth buzz, like bolts of pure electricity sizzling out of the speakers. The additional percussion is dense and intense, slowly climaxing into a heart skipping frenzy.
‘Bland Ambition Pt. 2’ is gloriously deep, dark and heavy with a gorgeous dreamy, emotive, introspective synth that warps around the momentum of the percussion.
‘Bland Ambition Pt. 3’ is a banger - upping the tempo a coupla notches with trails of liquid mercury synth slivering around the metallic drums and droning siren. Pure dancefloor carnage/ debauchery.
‘Bland Ambition Pt. 1’ tunnels even deeper into an ambiguous, eerie zone. There’s a meditative quality to the harmonic droning that’ll leave the body confused as whether to lie down or dance - thankfully the percussion ensures no snoozing.
Four solid tracks that’ll keep any Surgeon fan happy - myself included.
