Richie Hawtin is dropping an unreleased album from his older F.U.S.E. alias, thanks to a collaboration between his Plus 8 Records imprint and The Vinyl Factory.
The LP, 'Computer Space', was recorded in 1993, with Hawtin hinting at its landing last autumn, with the record being promised as a fascinating insight into Hawtin's evolution into Plastikman, another Hawtin moniker with a new album in the works.
Commemorating the 25th anniversary of his seminal techno album 'Dimension Intrusion', the 'Dimensions' box set will also come with a remastered version of the original album with two previously unreleased tracks, as well as his 'Train-Tracs' EP.
Hawtin explained 'Computer Space' was an experiment "based upon sampling the Roland TB-303 with Akai S950 sampler". He added: "By looping and stretching different TB-303 samples I was able to create strings, pads and different TB-303 related textures that became the basis of the Computer Space sessions".
The 'Dimensions' vinyl arrives 15th April, while the digital offering will land sometime in May.
