[ 2×12″ Gatefold + Poster ] – Originally released in the early 90’s, a key era for hugely influential electronic music. 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’.
