Surgeon - Fixed Action Pattern

Recording info

Token followers can rejoice that now, 2014, Surgeon finally makes his official debut on the label. Fixed Action Pattern comes as prequel to Aphelion, a forthcoming compilation of new and exclusive material. Aphelion will differ from last year s Token Introspective mix CD by providing a collection of bespoke productions from Token regulars and like-minded artists who were commissioned by label owner Kr!z to bring their individual and complimenting sound to the Belgian imprint s all-consuming 48th release. Following this Surgeon 12 , Rodhad will release his second record for Token before the final unveiling of Aphelion.

Anthony Child has appeared on Token once before in 2008 remixing Grovskopa s Sex and Violins, and while regularly supporting the label s music in his DJ sets, it s been a long awaited six years for UK techno s most trusted producer to resurface on an imprint he s helped inspire and influence. Surgeon s two-track Fixed Action Pattern certifies Token s credentials as a titan power in the world of no frills, industrially hardened techno, and this 46th release since the label took shape in 2007 follows this year s Vaudeville LP by Inigo Kennedy, Rich Oddie and Ancient Method s relentless debut as Eschaton, Ctrls fifth EP for Token, more quality output as usual from Phase, and Christian Wunsch & Oscar Mulero s second release for Kr!z as Spherical Coordinates.

Combining distorted drums similar to his earlier works on Dynamic Tension with a rusted synth progression Inigo Kennedy enthusiasts will inherently gravitate toward, Fixed Action Pattern is a bona-fide, rhythmically broken, Surgeon classic. For a second option Child provides a spatial dub version Lee Scratch Perry would produce had industrial techno been his thing, sequencing a loosened variant of drums disjointed by the injured swing of its tempo, cloaked in the lonesome moans of a distant fog horn, subtle feedback loops and splashes of space echo.
