B12's essential second album will be reissued 22 years after its initial release.
Originally released in 1996, ‘Time Tourist' continued the sleek, Detroit-inspired sci-fi techno moves of B12's ‘Electro Soma’ era, but tied 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.
Four bonus tracks will also be unleashed as part of the release, available on a limited 12" hand-stamped white label and on CD editions of the reissue.
