Surgeon has been at the forefront of UK techno since 1992. His debut EP is regarded by many as seminal, launching his career along with several early Downwards releases, causing a ripple of excitement through the techno cognoscenti of the time. Surgeon has been prolific since, with albums on Tresor and numerous Counterbalance and Dynamic Tension EPs as well as his Breaking The Frame, From Farthest Known Objects and Luminosity Device LPs Further evidence of these multi-functional production skills can be seen on Surgeon's impressive remix CV, working with the biggest names in techno (Dave Clarke, Luke Slater/PAS, Green Velvet, Hardfloor, the Black Dog etc), Thom Yorke (Radiohead), Glasgow post-rock outfit Mogwai, old masters Faust and Coil, as well as artists such Moderat, Shed, Traversable Wormhole and Scuba. Over the years Surgeon has shown his versatility as a musician with releases under his own name and with the Transcendence Orchestra project, a co-operation with Daniel Bean on FatCat, NNA Tapes and Editions Mego which break all the usual boundaries of electronic dance music. In March 2023 Surgeon will release his first full length album for 5 years on Tresor Records. Surgeon is a selector of some skill and one of the most inventive, intuitive DJs out there. Using techno as a vehicle to carry his artistic message, he also mixes up everything from contemporary bass music to Rephlex-esque electronica to create a coherent, intense and righteously banging whole. More recently live improvisation has become a more important part of all of his performances.
