I'm not crazy about the dubstep bit in the middle or the lame cover art but everything else was as I would expect from the guy who made minimal techno more popular then jungle in New Jersey.

This is a good mix. My favorite tracks are "Crab People" and "Klonk Part 1", both of which are outstanding melodic techno. Surgeon very conspicuously includes some dubstep such as Starkey's "Stars". It's a nice change of pace. While the track selection is all right, the mixing is excellent. Surgeon skillfully layers and blends together about thirty tracks onto one disc.

Excellently selected and made into one living breathing masterpiece. One of the best mixes. It's kind of risky for someone to make a mix compilation for Fabric with very 'main' obvious tunes like it is for him when he is amongst the most sophisticated dj/producers on the planet. But he made it. This mix cd is main and obvious but still very very sophisticated indeed staying true to what he represents. Love it!

Scalpel precision. When can I get an appointment, Doctor?

that's at least a really good mix I must say. how does he blend them like that? I especially like a brilliant part consisting of these three: Surgeon – The Crawling Frog Is Torn And Smiles, Orphx – Threshold (Substance Mix), Gatekeeper – Blip.
that mix is just essential in all ways, but particularly in mixing - this is REALLY perfectly structured and smart one.

The Fabric 53 mix by Surgeon is one of the pearls. It was like a relief for me when I started to feel somehow bitter due to the flood of average stuff. You know those sets that send sweet shivers down your back and force you to smile from passage to passage? This is one of them. Put on your finest headphones and play it loud. True balm for the soul if you want Techno.

Many people have been asking what relevance mix cds have on the electronic music landscape recently with the proliferation of high quality downloadable mixes from artists and magazines (for example: the Autonomic podcasts, Resident Advisor's podcasts, and FACT Magazine's podcasts). Where many mix series have faded into obscurity, the Fabric series remains and continues to release quality up to date releases which are better than any downloadable mix you will find. This is one of those mixes, incorporating more classical techno numbers with more modern yet to be classified electronic compositions, this mix is easily my favorite that came out in 2010. While many may prefer the Optimo fabric mix over this for its raw eclecticism, I prefer this one because as soon as you hear the recording of the train departing the station in the beginning you know that you are about to embark on one hell of a ride which is something all of the best mixes take you on.

Ah where would the world be without the surgeon. The music that he has created and influences that he has made leave little to the imagination from a man who is as talented as him. This is of no difference typical surgeon style slow build ups and pouncing when you least expect it. A true leader in the world of techno.
