The Needle Drop

Surgeon- "Radiance"

New MusicadminComment

Surgeon is electronica producer Anthony Child, and the track above comes from what seems to be his first LP under this pseudonym in over ten years. Since his '98 album Balance, the guy's output has been mostly in EPs. But the recently released Breaking the Frame dishes out one six-minute meditation after another.

On "Radiance," some thick bass hits rumble over some really busy background rhythms. It swells really nicely into some lush and heavenly textures before getting dark and overbearing once again. As the track progresses, it's a constant fight between light and heavy sounds.

Look for this album on via Dynamic Tension.
