After the behemoth Shackleton and Scuba events of this year, White Rhino continue to navigate the sonic realms between Sci-Fi Techno, UK Bass, and Mutant Rave and are proud to bring you an Icon, Innovator and Inspirator of absolutely proper, uncompromising British Techno….SURGEON (British Murder Boys) will be landing in Brisbane in what looms to be one of the biggest dates of the year on the cities mad carnt calendar.
His booming, bass heavy break beat laden, raw and industrial take on Techno has always retained an experimental edge in its delivery, garnering him a widespread cult-like following through his near 20 year career.
Surgeon has remixed luminaries such as Thom Yorke, Mogwai, Faust, Coil, Dave Clarke, Luke Slater, Matmos, Monolake and The Maccabees to name but a few.
For those uninitiated with the bleeding edge sonic force of Surgeon, seek out his aptly titled, career defining mix for Warp Records “This Is For You Shits”, or his recent, critically acclaimed “Fabric 53” mix to get a taste for the level of business this man deals in!
His work with long time friend Regis as the duo BRITISH MURDER BOYS burned down the conventions of traditional Techno to produce a highly potent form of distinctly British anti-pop, and spawned the most influential, commercially and critically successful music of their careers to date.
Fresh off the back of his FABRIC 53 mix, SURGEON’S first tour of Australia in over 10 years is taking place downstairs at The Step Inn. The room will be reinforced with professionally monitored extra sound, lighting, lasers and double barrel live visuals courtesy of Shiptu_Shaboo.
