Frequencies has been re-issued as a loud-cut double LP, including Groovy Distortion and Track 14, which were previously unavailable on vinyl. The original single disc LP had completely sold out by the mid nineties meaning this will be the first opportunity for many LFO fans to hear Frequencies via vinyl.
LFO's legendary eponymous single provided Warp records with their first major hit. The incredible, acid-fuelled power of the track, along with the rest of Frequencies
, their seminal debut, also made Gez Varley and Mark Bell two of the most influential producers ever to emerge from the nascent British dance scene. Their own influences are revealed in the shape of dedications to "the pioneers of the hypnotic groove"--Brian Eno, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Depeche Mode and Yellow Magic Orchestra.
LFO followed on from this tradition with a zeitgeist-capturing album that takes the sweat and vibes of the late 80s acid-house scene and distils it on to wax. Cuts like the afore-mentioned "LFO", "Nurture", "We Are Back", "You Have To Understand", "Love Is the Message" and "Mentok" are timeless and with their Derrick May-esque touches of symphonic elegance, dystopian drum kicks and hallucinogenic dream-textures, make Frequencies one of the standout albums of the dance era. They don't make them like this anymore. --Paul Sullivan
