Quick Overview

Released 16th November - Indies Only Gold Double LP + Download + Booklet + Sticker Sheet



New edition of the second B12 album, ‘Time Tourist’, originally released by Warp in 1996. It continues the sleek, Detroit-inspired sci-fi techno moves of their ‘Electro-Soma’ era but ties the tracks to a playful concept in which the tracks are presented as an educational soundtrack designed by the 22nd-Century company B12 Systems.

Housed in an evocative Designer’s Republic sleeve based on a classic Trevor Webb airbrush painting, the sleevenotes riff on a dystopian future society looking back at the primitive past and includes references to such genre touchstones as ‘Blade Runner’, Philip K. Dick and ‘Star Wars’.

2LP housed in printed 5mm outer sleeve with paper inners, 8pp booklet (the original ‘B12 technology times’ sleevenote has been re-designed as a standalone booklet insert), A5 sticker sheet (of future corporate logos from the ‘Time Tourist’ universe) and digital download card insert. Download includes original album and the four previously unreleased bonus tracks.
