Update from B12 on Facebook today :

"The music industry is full of so many rules; don't release in august don't release in December don't release too much music too soon don't collaborate don't confuse yours message don't give to this label or that label don't use digital gear don't use presets don't create expensive products don't Blah blah rah rah
Well December 2010 I was just hours away from dying in a hospital bed ; then when that was clearly not gunna happen my family were told I would likely be bed bound for the rest of my life and that didn't happen
So I say to hell with the rules ; I have nothing to proove ; I have done all I need to do musically ; I exist ; so against every rule in the book - This summer perhaps august Electro Soma will be reissued along with bonus vinyl on warp record ; and at the same time I will release my Brain Fog album of 12 tracks of goodness ; and if it's too much too soon then it's too much too soon ; if it's too much at the same time then it's too much at the same time - for I know from experience the lights go out when someone else presses the switch . Today is all we have
Thank you all for you continued support

a reissue is apparently happening this summer, release via warp
this info comes from the official B12 page which I presume is run by steve rutter
he's asking for 'any old pictures of him and mike ; or flyers ; or any other memorabilia from the 90's relating to B12 and or Electro Soma '

Please re-press! A classic that deserves to be appreciated by more people.

I have and always will love the Artificial Intelligence Series on Warp - Simply timeless! Electronic music at its best!! Reminds me of travelling through Hyperspace to somewhere else......

The more I listen to "Metropolis" (C3) the more I enjoy it really now. Most of this tracks here were released on the B12 label before in 1991 & 1992, that are very advanced works for that time in electronic dance music. Probably the best piece of Michael Golding & Steve Rutter. No. 4 in the Artificial Intelligent series.
