The cutting-edge drum ‘n’ bass outfit known as Artificial Intelligence is made up of two energetic Londoners: Glenn Herweijer and Zula Warner. The duo has been recording and DJing together for ten years ever since Glenn handed their demo to Marcus Intalex. Their uplifting tunes are laden with funky bass stabs and percussive finesse and have seen releases on several well-known labels. Fast-forward to 2006 and we find Chicago in quite the lucky place; this weekend, Artificial Intelligence takes to the decks in our fair city for the first time. Glenn and Gambit (Zula’s moniker) are recognized for their fusion of chaotic breakbeats, jazz elements and gospel-like vocals. Characterized as a “Widescreen Dancefloor Sound,” their style is not to be missed. (John Alex Colón)
