James Ruskin’s legendary Blueprint imprint turns 20 this year, celebrating the anniversary with new material by Ruskin’s old pal Surgeon. ‘Search Deep Inside Yourself’, Surgeon’s first release on the label for 19 years, is an absolute monster.
The Birmingham producer serves up four slices of pure heat, surging between metallic loop-jams (‘Inside’), bleep-heavy broken techno brilliance (‘Deep’), and surprisingly warm, tribal-enthused techno anthems (‘Search’), going all out on the closing track (‘Yourself’).
Last month the UK techno icon released his impressive seventh Surgeon album ‘From Farthest Known Objects’ on Dynamic Tension.
‘Search Deep Inside Yourself’ is out now on Blueprint Records.
