About this item
Stone-cold vintage Peel session here from early UK 'bleep-techno' pioneers LFO; whose 1990 visit to John's infamous studio forms the basis of this sixth volume of Warp's 'TX' series.
Listening to "Take Control", you'll easily recognize the blueprint that would see Mark Bell and Gez Varley regarded as innovators across dance music. "To The Limit" combines space-aged synths with jack claps and diva vox then associated with the acid house scene taing over England.
"Rob's Nightmare", an apt name for the creeping darkness opening the B-side, preceeded their first album, "Frequencies" and seems, to all intents and purposes to be receiving its first wax outing here - all rejoice!
"Lost World" concludes the set with more idiosyncratic beats n bleeps from the Leeds pair. I have to admit I don't really know where this one begun itself, but it's sounding substantial in this Peel session occurrence.
Essential stuff for any LFO devotee and another sterling addition to the Warp catalogue - check!
