This compilation contains tracks taken from the first ten Rather Interesting releases and represents one year of featuring the unexpected. Tracks 10 and 11 are previously unreleased bonus titles that are available on this recording only. All titles copyright control except 04 published by Rückbank. PID No.: 1995103

Track 1 taken from RI 23. Note: Release number one. Made for the frozen dancefloor. Beyond style.
Track 2 taken from RI 24. Note: Elevator music. Hi-res mellow textures. Laid back 20 Hz. Understand?
Track 3 taken from RI 25. Note: Very synthetic virtual noise. NASA did not complain yet. Psychedelic.
Track 4 taken from RI 26. Note: Hypnotising lounge music. A splendid time is guaranteed for all...
Track 5 taken from RI 27. Note: Nature is within the machine. Randomness as an organizing element.
Track 6 taken from RI 28. Note: This is no fake. End of century. Magic display. 27 digital snapshots.
Track 7 taken from RI 29. Note: The biologists biggest enemy is biology itself: what about musicians?
Track 8 taken from RI 31. Note: Freestyleflowingnonstandardpolyrhythmicatomisationretrofuture.
Track 9 taken from RI 32. Note: A binary amplified super stereo recording. Beauty: total separation.
Note on track 10: The Gaussian surface algorythm. Reality operating without science.
Note on track 11: Crude groove but smart visuals! Pictures of Jap girls in synthesis.

Rather Interesting is greeting: DJames Dean Brown, Bleed, Haruomi Hosono and all at Medium Inc., Oliver Ross, Sven Petersen, Bill Laswell and all those unmentioned who supported, inspired and listened.

A computer animated video entitled 'Dream Tribe' has been created by Protean Vision Quest which are based at The National Centre For Computer Animation, Bournemouth University, for the title 'Rather Sleep Than Dance'.

Limitation: 1000.

The artwork layout and colours on the "Real Intelligence" compilations are sampled from the two early IDM compilations entitled "Artificial Intelligence" on Warp Records, UK (although the colours are reversed - AI1 and RI2 are green, AI2 and RI1 are maroon). The "Real Intelligence" title is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the Warp album titles.

Timing printed on the back sleeve is wrong.
