Delsin announce new B12 record

The veteran UK producer lands on Delsin next month with Orbiting Souls.

Last month saw Amsterdam label Delsin reveal plans to profile the deep techno sound of UK artist John ‘D5’ Harvey with a retrospective album of classic and unreleased material called Sides Of Space. With that album scheduled to arrive next month, the UK flavour of Detroit-inspired techno will remain on the menu for Delsin with the news they have scooped a five-track EP of new material from B12. Along with The Black Dog and Baby Ford, B12 pair Mike Golding and Steve Rutter are synonymous with the early ’90s UK techno scene thanks to the material issued on their own eponymous label and Warp’s halcyon mid-’90s period.

After entering a hiatus as that decade drew to a close, B12 briefly re-emerged triumphantly in 2007 with a flurry of live shows, new material and archival releases before scampering back out of the spotlight. Grizzled Glasgow techno outpost Soma coaxed some new material out of B12 last month with the Bokide 325 EP with further music now set to arrive on Delsin. Due for release towards the end of November, the solemnly-titled Orbiting Souls is described as a “somewhat complex journey” and was produced solely by Rutter after “contemplating the loss of a friend”. Clips of the five-track record can be heard over at the Delsin site, whilst the label’s go to artworker Boris Tellegen has conjured up another distinctive full colour sleeve.

Delsin will release Orbiting Souls by B12 on November 23.
