+ Gatefold Double LP with 4 panel foldout 24” x 12” insert and Download.
With its gleaming surfaces, supple rhythms and utopian strings, B12’s Electro-Soma is among the most distinctive albums of this time. B12 went from anonymous figures on the fringe of the dance scene to emblems of techno and IDM. The duo were also involved in the Artificial Intelligence series from which this was the fourth edition, other releases included Aphex Twin (under the Polygon Window guise), The Black Dog and Autechre. Electro-Soma was a compilation hand picked by Warp founder Rob Mitchell from the tracks he loved on early B12 Records 12"s, with a few pieces made specifically for the album including ambient opening theme Soundtrack of Space. Originally inspired by punk, pirate radio, East London soca parties and above all Detroit techno, the B12 sound has inspired generations of electronic artists and the tracks are still played out at underground clubs around the world. 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.
