Boomkat Product Review:
Surgeon's 'Balance' (1998) is a masterclass is tuff, occultist Brummie techno.
Upon its original release, it was his 3rd album (following 'Communications' and 'Basictonalvocabulary'), and marked a phase shift towards the kind of tripped-out, eldritch atmospheres we'd more readily associate with his peers such as Autechre or Coil, whilst still forging some of the most unyielding, infectious rhythms of golden era techno.
The likes of 'Golden' with its arcing crest of eerie arpeggios, and the spine-creeping, beat-less zones of 'Dinah's Dream' reflect an air of technological fear and pre-millenial tension, whereas grooves such as 'Circles' and 'The Heath' deal in lip-bitingly sharp, latinate dynamics that can twist a room full of baying dancers into a contortionist frenzy without resorting to base kick drum bludgeoning.
