Remembering Mark Bell

[separator type=”thin”]

We’re still mourning the death of UK techno pioneer Mark Bell, who passed away last week following complications after an operation. Bell led the way for a generation of UK producers with his groundbreaking records on Warp as LFO (with Gez Varley) and worked with Björk on most of her albums, including the 1997 masterpiece ‘Homogenic’.

After scoring huge dancefloor hits with the first LFO singles in the early nineties Bell started working as a producer and remixer, while stil releasing solo material under various guises. Check out this stunner that was released on Carl Craig’s Planet E imprint in the mid nineties. It’s almost twenty years old, but hasn’t lost any of its beauty or power.
