#012 Surgeon

Surgeon was part of what Dave Clarke has called the 'second wave of British techno', emerging from the mid 90s Birmingham scene as a resident at House Of God and affiliate of Regis' Downwards label. In the years since he has cemented a reputation as one of the foremost exponents of genuinely forward-thinking techno, and explored other styles with his work as Anthony Child and with Daniel Bean as The Transcendence Orchestra. We cover topics including the forces of conservatism in techno, the challenges of forging a link between human and machine, and running the risk of destroying your career by playing a support slot for Lady Gaga.
