LTM presents a new coloured vinyl 2xLP edition of B9, the definitive collection of cold wave and minimal electronica from Belgium, recorded between 1979 and 1983.
To complement the striking op-art cover design by Victor Vasarely, the new 2020 edition is pressed on blue and red vinyl. 500 copies only have been pressed.
Originally released on Sandwich Records in May 1981, B9 featured 10 exclusive tracks by luminaries such as Digital Dance, Polyphonic Size, Kid Montana, Pseudo Code and Prothese, the latter the first recording project by Daniel Bressanutti of Front 242. Now digitally remastered, with 10 additional tracks on the second disc, this new deluxe vinyl edition also features Front 242, The Names, Marine, Siglo XX, The Neon Judgement, Berntholer, Allez Allez, Isolation Ward and more.
