B12
Electro-Soma I + II Anthology

Simultaneously releasing a massive reissue of their 1993 album Electro-Soma and a “Part II” made up of archived material from the album sessions, why not just get both? So B12 are offering a double CD set with both albums and a big booklet. Truly essential stuff from the early 90s warp era and for fans of Autechre, The Black Dog and the Artificial Intelligence series

KineStatics
Labyrinth

KineStatics is what happens when Steven Rutter and Karla Hajman get together for some music-making. The Labyrinth EP is brimming over with dubby goodness and friendly techno, with Karla’s expressive vocals putting everything in a good place. Three tracks on the A-side, plus a dub version and a beats version on the B. From FireScope.

Steven Rutter & Kirk Degiorgio
Braconian Beta

The latest drop on Firescope Records finds label boss Steven Rutter (B12) team up with Kirk Degiorgio (As One) for an EP of retrofuturist club fare. Braconian Beta sees the two techno veterans using their old-school knowhow to show the young pretenders how it’s done. The stargazing techno tracks here are a similar brand of Detroit revivalism to Space Dimension Controller.

B12
Time Tourist (Expanded Edition)

A classic of Warp’s golden era, B12’s 1996 album Time Tourist gets a landmark twenty-second anniversary reissue, including a few newly-unearthed alt versions for posterity. Michael Golding’s and Steve Rutter’s glistening, FM pad-drenched ambient IDM went all-in on the retrofuturistic sci-fi narratives for this one, topped off as they are with referential titles and Trevor Webb’s massive painted cover art. Excellent.

Steven Rutter & John Shima
Step Into The Light

FireScope Records is run by one Steven Rutter who on Step Into The Light is collaborating with John Shima. These tracks all carry an optimism that is more than welcome in 2018. Addictive drum buttons layered with a warm ambience contrast with tracks that have a bit more bounce.

Steven Rutter
BrainFog

Coloured vinyl klaxon! Double-disc alarm! Kickass artwork alert! If you're not already sold, a quick listen to the latest release from Steven Rutter—head honcho at FireScope Records—will do it. With 12 tracks of melancholic grooves, stomping techno and nods to classic hip-hop, 'BrainFog' travels from introspective doom and gloom to euphoric moments of lightness and hope. 

Steven Rutter
From Me To You

Since the early '90's Steven Rutter has been half of B12 alongside Mike Golding. Now he’s unleashing some uplifting techno, occasionally tempered with contemplative darkness on FireScope. Complete with his signature drum style and skillful programming of the ol’ 808, From Me To You will is the latest chapter in the UK Techno trailblazer's career.

B12
Electro-Soma II

Alongside the reissue of B12’s Electro-Soma they have compiled a load more material taken from the time they were working on the album and created Electro-Soma II, a compilation of archival gold for everyone (who is a fan of the Artificial Intelligence series). Early 90s electronica/IDM originators.  Double LP with download on Warp records

B12
Mindbender

B12 are a long-running duo working in and around the genres of techno and IDM. Their 90’s roots (they’ve been released on Warp Records) shine through on Mindbender, their new four-track release. Pressed to purple and black splatter vinyl on FireScope Records, which is a sub-label of the duo’s own B12 Records.

B12
BrokenBroken

Warp records luminaries B12 dip in and out with flurries of activity. Here they have revisited the source material they used to make 2016’s BrokenUnbroken on Firescope. Whilst there are some recognisable elements here, this is certainly not a remix or rework album, but going to the same start point and ending up somewhere very different. Thoughtful and intelligent techno.

B12 ft. Yonii
In Vain

B12 are a long-running duo working in and around the genres of techno and IDM. Their 90’s roots (they’ve been released on Warp Records) shine through on this EP, which also features the sensitive vocals of Yonii. Her voice balances out the slight darkness of the electronics very nicely. Pressed to white and green splatter vinyl on FireScope Records.

B12
Deceased Unknown

Central to the UK techno scene since the '90s, B12 launch Deceased Unknown, their latest EP. Recently making new music for the legendary Soma and Delsin, here the duo give us four slices of the deep and dark stuff on their new sub-label. Complex drums, organ chords and gnarled basslines lurk within the grooves. Red & black splatter vinyl with glorious artwork by Sarah Sparkes, on FireScope.

B12
An Eternal Flame

The style of the sleeve art might tip you off that this is firmly 90’s style music right here, but don’t worry: the standard of B12’s techno is a lot higher than the standard of their art design. An Eternal Flame’s four tracks are thoughtful and spacey and imaginative. Coloured vinyl 12” on the FireScope Records imprint.
