Surgeon, real name Anthony Child, has been at the forefront of UK techno since 1994.
His debut “Surgeon EP” is regarded by many as seminal, and along with several early Downwards releases, caused a ripple of excitement through the techno cognoscenti of the time. Surgeon released a further three albums on Tresor, numerous Counterbalance and Dynamic Tension EPs and LPs “Body Request” in 2000, “Breaking The Frame” LP in 2011, and “From Farthest Known Objects” in 2016.
Over the course of his career, the Birmingham resident has perfected a unique and uncommonly effective production style. His is a tough techno sound with an industrial murk about it but also plenty of funk, swing and a sophisticated sense of dub-space learned in part from his Chain Reaction contemporaries in Berlin.
Nov 10th this local legend brings his notorious DJ set to The Hare venue 1 – NOT TO BE MISSED!

RETURNING TO THE HARE after a killer show back in March this year is the one and only Steve Davis – this time with alt-music partner in tow – Kavus Torabi.
The legendary sporting phenomenon from the 80s who took snooker to new heights and as presenter of The Interesting Alternative Show on Pheonix FM with Kavus brought prog and jazz oddities to his cult audience, now turns his hands to the decks. As a hobby which he claims has spun out of control, their notorious 2016 Glastonbury set at the 500 capacity Stonebridge bar was mobbed by a curious turned shocked and enthralled crowd. With a packed out DJ diary since, the duo has continued to woo party goers from Bluedot to Bloc Festival. Drawing from an eclectic array of influences: Magma, Caravan, Oscar Perry, Soft Machine and Gong to name but a few – Steve & Kavus spin together a unique set in their quest to deliver the music they love to lovers of the party.

ROUND-UP: Steve Davis | Graham Dunning | HelloCatFood | Rocky Steps

...

Saturday night saw…well, there aren’t really any words.

So instead here’s a 50 second video roundup of the bat-shit-crazy-alternative-grownup-discotheque we put on at The Hare and Hounds the other night…

So that’s that!

Huge thanks to the fascinating Graham Dunning and his Mechanical Techno set, Antonio Roberts (aka HelloCatFood) for providing the mind-bending visuals, Rocky Steps for his incredible warm-up set for the main event – Steve Davis – what an unbelievable 3 hours of experimental party music he gave us!

And a huge thanks to The Hare and Hounds for hosting the event and including us in their 10th Anniversary Series!

We’re just about recovered.

“Steve Davis makes the point that if anyone ever tried to push him off balance, he would waver not to the left, right or backwards, but only forwards.”

With Kavus Torabi, DJ Bus Replacement Service and techno legend Surgeon in tow, Steve returns to The Hare and Hounds, Kings Heath for ROUND 3 of the ultimate alternative club night – yes 3, it’s THAT good! Act fast, tickets sold out way in advance last time – facebook event page HERE

Steve Davis – the legendary sporting phenomenon from the 80s who took snooker to new heights and as presenter of The Interesting Alternative Show on Phoenix FM brought prog and jazz oddities to his cult audience, now turns his hands to the decks. A real game changer: a real forward thinker.

Listen back to the archive of The Interesting Alternative Show:

We at Supersonic began to wonder about the science, the physics behind being both snooker champion and superstar DJ.

An insightful article on snooker technique at http://www.fcsnooker.co.uk/ assists with this comparison:

“Players should not be bound by principles generally laid down in previous books. If need be, they should experiment and find out if they can achieve their objectives in other ways.”

“What suits one player will not automatically suit another”.

“Discover the stance that works best for you and do not copy others. Try and focus on what is happening on top of the table and not what is happening beneath.”

From snooker, to turn, the table is a place Steve Davis is well on top of. He is certainly not bound by previously laid principles and experiments with an atypical approach to bringing the party.

It’s a hobby which he claims has spun out of control. His notorious 2016 Glastonbury set at the 500 capacity Stonebridge bar with partner in crime Kavus Torabi was mobbed by a curious turned shocked and enthralled crowd. With a packed out DJ diary since, Steve and Kavus have continued to woo party goers from Bluedot to Bloc Festival, from all around the UK to Thailand and beyond. Drawing from an eclectic array of influences: Magma, Caravan, Oscar Perry, Soft Machine and Gong to name but a few – Steve & Kavus spin together a unique set in their quest to deliver the music they love to lovers of the party.

According to http://snookerdelight.com, here are the steps towards taking the perfect snooker shot:

[DJ edit]

(we’re really enjoying this metaphor)

Step 1: Determine where you want the cue ball to go

Step 2: Determine where the cue ball will strike the object ball audience

Step 3: Determine how to strike the cue ball – pace and position 

Step 4: Stand behind the intended line of the cue ball (NOTE: this is where a lot of amateur players get into trouble) (NOTE: remain behind the booth. OR stand on it if you’re Kavus Torabi)

Step 5: Walk into the shot in a specific consistent way finger point dance

Step 6: Feather and pause as needed [errr?]

Step 7: Strike the cue ball [DROP]

OK I think we’ve laboured the point long enough. This is going to be a championship worthy set!
