How's it going everyone?
Check out our fabric: Surgeon CD, 53rd in the series, available NOW!
fabric 53: Flicking easily from the heavy, sheets of sound produced by his old school contemporaries, Surgeon fuses the old with the new on fabric 53, creating connections between the oppressing and the minimal that have never been as simply decoded. Honing in on the idea that a lot of 'modern' bass music harks back to rave and constantly re-feeds on its memory for inspiration, ("just this idea of the breakbeat, the broken beat; it's got some echoes of rave, there are some elements of that somewhere in it"), he includes music from a veritable liege of young producers. Instra:mental's rolling 'Forbidden' is used early on and adds the kind of quickened bass texture that has been carefully incubated over their workings as they slow down from 175bpm drum & bass and Starkey's 'Spacecraft' is used brilliantly to juxtapose the rolling pressure of what comes before it, eliminating the 4x4 pulse and adding thicker, more leading bass tones.
