B12

One of only a handful of British techno acts ostensibly pursuing a legacy of British techno firmly rooted in its Detroit pre-history, B12 are also (perhaps resultingly) one of the few British techno acts also hailed by the Motor City's aesthetic elite. Notoriously shy of the music press, the London-based duo of Mike Golding and Steve Rutter have quietly made their contribution to post-rave techno by updating Detroit's signature optimistic/dystopian futurism for a digital age, constructing tracks of glinting, heavily syncopated electro-techno with a strong base in melody and mood. A relatively young project, the group have made an impact despite a comparatively conservative release schedule. They issued their first handful of untitled 12-inches -- attributed to a loosely structured catalog of pseudonyms like Redcell, Musicology, and CStasis -- on their own B12 label, and were immediately hailed alongside U.K. techno acts like LFO, the Black Dog, Sweet Exorcist, and Tricky Disco as heralding something of a new age of post-acid house techno-based electronic music. Included on the Warp label's somewhat disastrously titled Artificial Intelligence compilations (the pair signed with Warp in 1992), Golding and Rutter were also (somewhat unfairly) pegged as the sort of likewise artful noodlers the term "intelligent techno" has since come to signify. Their Warp debut in 1993 assembled the best of their early years, and the group followed the release with a three-year hiatus before releasing the like-sounding Time Tourist in 1996. Outside of their relationship with Warp, the group keep all other B12-related music-dealings in-house -- including distribution -- which means their records can be somewhat hard to find. Their two full-lengths for Warp were reissued in the U.S. by Wax Trax!/TVT. ~ Sean Cooper, Rovi

Have had Time Tourist as CD and now as MP3s since I don't know when. An album to conjure with, the cover art suggests so many possibilitie s . Where are B12 now and why did they stop making this great music?

I first heard electro-soma in 1994. It turned my brain around and I still love it. Timeless.

Intelligent techno, need I say more. Positive comments are always the best. (Directly proportional to your happiness.) (Turn the decibal level up and experience something new.)

Is it me or is this song the basis for "Timber" by Coldcut? I thought I was listening to Coldcut for the two minutes. They straight lifted it; I wonder if B12 knows that...

Like Squarepusher at 100 bpm instead of 300,000...to o bad it's so derivative.. . n e e d better voice samples mixed in...but it's not too obnoxious. I think Morcheeba serves my junk-filled habit better
