The Philosophy of Sound and Machine
The concept for the LP was by Kirk Degiogio of A.R.T. Records UK, who through his
contact with Grant Wilson Claridge of RePHLeX collected tracks from both
artists known to him and Grant. The result was the first ALL British "Techno" compilation
which still stands out as some of the best material released by many of the contributing
artists. Richard James, Black Dog, B12, Matt Cogger and Kirk Degiogio all contirbuted
tracks that many still consider their best work. The LP was only released on CD, it was a huge
success and their have been plans for some time to re-issue it (fingers crossed). There
have also been plans for some time for a second edition (PoSaM 2) but due to many of the
original artists being involved with musical projects elsewhere this is proving to be a
difficult organisational task.
The Artwork was supplied by Abdul Hagg from Detroit who had been doing work for Transmat and
BUZZ Records in Belgium. He had (at the time) recently drawn the "Relics" LP sleeve and he has
since been working with R&S Records in Belgium.
The B12 Tracks were subsequently Licenced to WARP Records to appear on the LP
