Warp reissues B12's Electro-Soma

Warp to rerelease B12's Electro-Soma this August

B12 are getting the reissue treatment this August, with the rerelease of Electro-Soma on Warp. It was first put out in 1993 in the form of a compilation of Warp founder Rob Mitchell’s favourite B12 12"s, which also included some new tracks. One of Warp’s original signees, the duo were involved in the Artificial Intelligence series alongside Aphex Twin (as Polygon Window), The Black Dog and Autechre.

Electro-Soma has been remastered and includes a new essay by Ben Murphy as well as archival photos, flyers and other memorabilia from the period. There's also a launch party at The Yard in Hackney on 15 September. Tickets are available via Resident Advisor.
