“Techno soul.”

Kenny Larkin is reissuing his Metaphor album in an expanded edition, via his own Art of Dance imprint this May.

Originally released in 1995, Metaphor is described as an extension of Larkin’s “techno soul agenda,” imbuing Detroit techno with futuristic synthesizers.

The expanded edition features three bonus tracks not included on the original 1995 release — ‘Life Goes On’, ‘Loop 1.5’, and ‘Catatonic (Part 2)’.

It follows the reissue of Larkin’s 1994 debut album Azimuth, in 2020.
