WARPLP6 Details

WARPLP6 Artificial Intelligence
WARPLP6 was originally released in August of 1992.
The philosophy states that Artificial Intelligence is for long journeys quiet nights and club drowsy dawns. Listen with an open mind... It is this philosophy that made, sold and continues to enhance AI's global status. It was the first in what Warp called it's AI series. The compilation contains many highly reguarded artists who, mainly for contractual reasons, used pseudonyms for this release. B12 appear under their commonly used "Musicology" name, Black Dog appear as "I.A.O", The Aphex Twin appears as "The Dice Man", Ritchie Hawtin appears as UP! and The Orb appear as "Dr Alex Peterson". The Album was critically acclaimed and led to solo LP's by EVERY contributor except Dr Alex Peterson.

B12 were asked to create and LP which later evolved into Electro Soma.




Artificial Intellgence was a voice that conveyed thoughts and feelings that were being evolved by the artists for many years before the LP was released. AI was 'simply' the media by which the world was made aware of "Electronic Listening Music". The world is now well voiced in the philosophy and as a result Artificial Intelignce has been domestically released in over 12 countries, most recently Japan.
