Surgeon – E-Tard Dance Party 2

Due to overwhelming numbers the other week at the massive Plex / Colony / Machine party at London’s Corsica Studios I missed Surgeon throwing down his thing (you just could not get into that room it was so full of people). By the accounts I’ve seen, he threw it down hard. And it’s not like the rest of the lineup didn’t blow me away: Ben Sims, Adam X (wow), Andy Stott, Matt Whitehead, and Neil Landstrumm. Sadly I had to leave by the time Ancient Methods and Perc took to the booth. Right, focus, we were talking about Surgeon’s new mix. So. Here we go.

Surgeon shared this mix last night via his Back In The Grinder blog.

As the title suggests it follows on from September’s E-Tard Dance Party and moves on from that style of sonic delivery, where Cut Hands, Alice Coltrane, Coil, Faust and La Monte Young featured. Moves on into soundtrack territory comprising of work from Vangelis, Peter Gabriel, Dead Can Dance, Harry Dean Stanton, Carmine Coppola, and Lalo Schifrin.

If you’re expecting a for the floor techno session you’re going to need to look elsewhere.

Accompanying his mix, Surgeon says
