Surgeon is one of the most celebrated techno artists from the UK. His debut Surgeon EP is regarded by many as seminal, and along with several early Downwards releases, caused a ripple of excitement through the techno cognoscenti of the time. His three albums on Tresor, released between ’97 and ’99 will always remain highlights in the history of techno. His long career, not forgetting collaborations including British Murder Boys and TRADE, point to a unique and uncommonly effective production style. He cultivates a severe techno sound, with an industrial murk about it, diffused with plenty of funk, swing and a sophisticated sense of dub-space learned in part from his Chain Reaction contemporaries in Berlin.
