Two generations of UK techno meet on a 12-inch due out next month.
UK techno doyen Surgeon has collaborated with Blawan on a forthcoming EP for Works The Long Nights.
The four-track EP has been produced under the name Trade, and will see release next month on the imprint that Blawan, real name Jamie Roberts, runs with Pariah.
Surgeon (AKA Anthony Child) has long championed the work of Blawan and other members of the current crop of UK techno producers. For Roberts it's the latest in a growing number of collaborations; the South Yorkshireman already produces music under various guises with Pariah and the Analogue Cops. You can hear a preview of the record on Child's Soundcloud page.
