Surgeon to remaster old material for vinyl series



British techno stalwart Surgeon has announced the launch of a new 6 volume reissues label entitled SRX, through which he will revisit and remaster a collection of “early, rare, and unreleased works” from between 1994 and 1996.”While searching through old DAT tapes I was shocked to find how clear and dynamic many of my early tracks sounded, not the way I remembered them from the vinyl releases,” Surgeon explains via his blog. “Those early tracks, recorded 20 years ago, were mastered and cut by people who had no understanding of electronic music. I actually remember cutting a dubplate back then and being asked if my track was “supposed to sound like that?” The engineer was so disgusted at my music that once the cut started he left the room until it was finished.”Kicking off the SRX series on September 15th will be the re-release of his self-titled ‘Surgeon’ EP, which will then be followed by a further 5 sets of previous material, finishing with a collection of unreleased tracks. The planned vinyls can be found below:SRX001 – Surgeon EP (2014 Remaster)SRX002 – Pet 2000 (2014 Remaster)SRX003 – Communications (2014 Remaster)SRX004 – Dynamic Tension EP (2014 Remaster)SRX005 – Rare Tracks 95-96 (2014 Remaster)SRX006 – Unreleased Tracks 95-96 Also don’t forget that August 25th will see the release of ‘Fixed Action Pattern’, Surgeon’s debut single for Belgian label Token Records. The release comes as a prequel to the ‘Aphelion’ LP, a collection of new and exclusive work from a host of Token regulars.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
