This is Surgeons top 10 techno records on 'Dummy' at the moment.

Overly druggy release, this one. The 5am mix of The Wipe needs no introduction: it is a rightful classic. The Sonik Dub version is more challenging because of its deranged programming and disturbed sounds. Spatial K sends waves of ice-cold, razorsharp crystals towards the listener's ears -- mostly beatless, but frenetic nonetheless.
All tracks share some elements: a combination of rather low-frequency oscillations with ear-piercingly high-pitched sounds, cascades of slightly distorted high percussions and a consistent use of flanger.

The Wipe is amazingly beautiful and exceedingly painful at the same time. Not merely a track, it's a miniature piece of performance art. To be done right, the audience should be wincing from ear-shredding treble while being unable to stop moving from ominous acid bassline.
