Surgeon - Luminosity Device

Recommended Posts

New Surgeon album coming soon. I've liked lots I've heard from him but struggled to find an album I could really dig in on. The new track is sounding pretty good, if a little less out there than expected...could just be a tamer cut given it's the lead single basically. It's a good track though. Not sure how many are into Surgeon here but think there's some so, yeah.

 

 

 

The nine-track album, which will hit the shelves on May 25th, is due out on Anthony Child's own Dynamic Tension label in double vinyl and digital formats. Thanks to its vision of a continuous flow between states of life and death, Bardo Thödol has been a common point of reference for Western artists throughout the 20th century.

Surgeon is an incredible DJ, saw him in Dublin 3 months ago and it was powerful. He threw a few Aphex tracks in with loads of killer techno.

 

His own tracks haven't really grabbed me that much since the early Downwards releases which are all great. Badger Bite especially.

 

Listening to this "Primary Clear Light" track and nice production but it's bit boring. boo!

 

Agreed, the cover is poor.

Don't think I've checked that one out! Will see if it's on Spotify :)

lol u right tho. It's his own label so he definitely had final say on the album imagery (if he didn't even do it himself) so we can definitely blame him.

Think I've heard some of that much earlier stuff, but definitely not everything, will go digging for the Badger ;)

I like his jungle synth albums.

I liked his wife's resident advisor mix (dj bus replacement service)

His dj sets are indeed killer, I particularly remember one bangface weekends where he played after altern8 and before current value. Savage

are fking nuts? The art & cover is as important as the music itself. It shows the connection between the music and the idea behind it and makes you even more get into it, just think of the draft 7.30 cover  or the prepared piano on drukqs and so on.... its very important man !

^ Agreed, the artwork is an important indicator of the direction of the music in the eyes of the artist.

 

This looks godlike / pearly gates type pose.  Bit weird.

awesome news love Surgeon! (agree the cover sucks but don't really care if the music is good!)

 

And the Maui Jungle albums were amazing, actually preferred them to any of the Surgeon albums tbh.

That track would have made my night played at 4am at a properly good rave in 1998. Not complaining.

hard to tell what the full album would be like from one preview..... going back to one of his earlier efforts (Breaking The Frame)

 

a 4x4 banger

 

^^ say that was in that case the preview for the album

 

followed by a lot of tracks more like this

or

 

a far more adventure driven sound design textural romp than just straight up dance floor fodder.... makes for very interesting mixing

It's pretty awesome. A bit psytrancey. Actually a perfect combination of techno and psytrance to me.

Wasn't feeling this that much on 1st listen but after a 2nd listen I'm sold!

 

On the face of it seems like pretty straight up techno but there are some really subtle interesting bits going on with them light trancey tones

What a mind cleanse!

New love for this after letting it play on Bluetooth while I was drifting in and out of consciousness. Real. Stargazing. Shit.

I streamed this the other day after being completely unaware it was out. It’s great, imo!

Have yet to check this out but I'm a big fan of his DJ sets and I rate his classic albums on Tresor (there was a nice box set of three very nicely remastered), though admittedly I have not heard his more recent full-lengths.
