I put this turntable mix together back in the early 90's. Long before Warp's Artificial Intelligence series , i was inspired by the emergence of less dance floor orientated style of techno and a conversation I had with Kirk Degiorgio about the need for techno to move out of clubs for the genre to survive. Remember, at that time the idea of listening to a whole album of techno was quite new. The arrival of British artists, like Kirk's As One, Aphex Twin, Global Communication, The Black Dog, Autechre and B12 did much to advance the idea, but of course a lot of the ground work had been laid by Detroit artists to move "Beyond the Dance ".
