Warp unearth one of their earliest albums, B12's soundtrack of space Electro-Soma. Compiled by Warp co-founder Rob Mitchell from a range of tracks produced under different aliases by the group, Electro-Soma was originally released as the fourth entry in the Artificial Intelligence series alongside now-classic albums from Black Dog Productions, Polygon Window, Autechre, Speedy J and F.U.S.E.
Arriving just under twenty-four years since its original inception, B12's Electro-Soma returns to take us once again on its journey deep into the outer reaches of science fiction inspired techno, whilst offering us a timeless classic within the lineage of both Warp and UK electronic music as a whole.
The 1993 album will be available again on vinyl alongside companion volume Electro-Soma II. All tracks on the reissues have been remastered from original sources and the packages include track-by-track annotation, a new essay about the early years of B12 by Ben Murphy, plus archival photos, flyers and other memorabilia from the period. Gatefold 2LP-set with 4 panel foldout 24" x 12" insert and download card.
