It is some 19 years since Surgeon dropped Pet 2000, arguably the most successful of his early forays into rambunctious, hard-wound techno. Here, it gets a reissue in newly remastered form as part of Surgeon's series of SRX releases. Despite its vintage, the EP still bristles with raw energy, a facet that makes it sound particularly relevant right now. Opener "Badger Bite" is typically uncompromising, with looped steel drum melodies and pulverizing rhythms being whipped into a dense, dancefloor frenzy. If anything, the kick drums and distorted stabs on "Electric Chicken" are even more intense, a feeling exaggerated by Surgeon's full-throttle production. There's a little relief in the shape of "Reptile Mess", which sounds positively dystopian in its freakish combination of undulating bass, cymbal-heavy percussion and psychedelic electronics.
