Boomkat Product Review:
**Includes digital download code redeemable from the label** Super sturdy reissue of Surgeon's now-classic debut album, Communications'. First released by Downwards in 1996 - the same year as Regis' debut, 'Gymnastics' - it served to define the Brummie techno sound and, in a broader sense, set a high water mark of UK techno. It's a resolutely stripped down and directly functional collection of six trax drawing inspiration from the concentrated energies of Coil as much as Chicago house and the Detroit / Berlin techno axis, channeling a stoic black country grit and humour into the steeliest of techno grooves. This edition, reissued on Surgeon's own Dynamic Tension Recordings rather than Downwards, has been remastered for extra bite and bang in all the right places, giving a second wind to the skeletal funk of 'Syllable' and the visceral, body-whip tones of 'Optic' that's ripe for proper dancefloor punishment.
