Product Description

CD Description

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.

Amazon.co.uk Review

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

'Classic' &' highly influential' are all descriptions so overused, but in this case id have to agree.
There is a really clean classy minimal spacey/ trippy BUT- ABOVE ALL- TECHNO quality to this album. The bass is seriously sub sonic. Made without being obsessed with 'trying' to be 'hard' or 'fast', these understated tunes are so well crafted and built from beginning to end- always packed with hooks that make it dancable & plant a cheeky grin on your face coz theyre so ruff without being cheesy. These are really 'head gear' tunes., Even now when i listen to Orbital 2 or Aphex amb. 85-92 - they all sound dated to me in comparison. Theyre just isnt the edge that there still is on this album. Granted it still sounds from a past era, but it has that "what the **** is that" quality to it that all good techno shoud have- you know, that dark strange discordant but at the same time beautiful and perfectly arranged quality.
Frequencies is loaded with bleeps & all sorts of quirky effects which do take you back to late 80s early 90s- but it has no naff 'take me higher' wannabe rave anthem tracks. Its slow (v.slow by todays standards), but so totally techno in spirit, so totally British infact, as although it would appeal to those who love that orig. detroit techno sound - or chicago acid house thing- this is still a different sound unique to Britain in early 90s, with a groove you dont even think about following- you just do. Some of these tracks are up there with Joey Beltrams NRG Flash, 808s Pacific, Fast Eddies Acid Thunder etc. but different / slower and more minimal.
There are a couple of tracks in the middle that to me sound a bit weak and dated- but considering the quality & inovativness of the rest- i mean they truly set a standard (how many others managed a whole album of near classics as opposed to the odd 12")- i stand by my rating!
"Pioneers of the hypnotic groove".

At the time of this CD's release, it was truly an inovation. I am buying this album for the second time as my original vinyl copy is getting a bit worn.
This album really did show that electronic music could have emotion and fealing. I remember buying purely for the second track, "LFO". This had been a single that had the most phenominal bass sound at a time when rave culture and warehouse parties were growing at massive rate. On first listen I was a little dissapointed, where was the album full of hard pumping dance anthems that I had expected.
As I listened to the album again a few days later I began to find more. I began to apreciate, the softer, gentler, whispering side of electronic music (El Ef Oh, Tan Ta Ra).
This is an album to imerse yourself in, shut the curtains, lie down and listen with headphones. Some may say that it sounds dated, but only as much as the universally excepted inovators, Kraftwerk. It's a thought provoking classic, not like the up-to-the-minute batery farmed dance hits currently being churned out.
If you like beautiful, "different", electronic music, like Moby or Leftfield, try this out. While it's not the same,it may just provoke a new inspiration in you.
Edd.

I first bought as a grubby student when it first came out in the early nineties. LFO the single, was a big student club hit, I loved it, danced manically to it, and thought it was a bit odd. I subsequently forgot about it and it sat in my CD collection collecting dust. A decade later - its obvious to me this is an absolute classic. I've listened to a lot of electronica and other techno since then (mostly WARP stuff) but it still sounds fresh and innovative now. Now I've "rediscovered" it, I keep going back to it again and again.
Anyone seriously interested in techno should have this album.

Well... where can I start.
For me this is a VERY influential album indeed. When I first heard this album in 1991 I was completely blown away... I'd never heard anything sound so...so....so "shiny!", "pristine", "dark", "beautiful" add as many adjectives you like... it's all here.
The difference though between this and many other favourite electronic albums, is that NOW (nearly 9 years later & hundreds of other great electronic albums listened to) every time I listen to this album I am STILL completely blown away.
I would heartily recommend this album to:
a) People who like electronic music b) People who don't like electronic music, c) and anybody else.
This album starts with the question "House, what IS house? KLF, Technotronic, or something you just live in?" and then proceeds to show that "house" (in it's original sense) is much much more than all that, it's beautiful enough to make you cry, dirty enough to make you marvel at it's textures & intricate enough to astound ya with skills.
Every track is a classic, from the spine tingling beauty of the incredible "Simon From Sydney", the landmark "Bleep tune" - "LFO" to the lovely "Tan Ta Ra"
If you are new to the wonders of WARP (and let's face it - everything that gets a Warp release is worth checking out) buy this album, take it home, listen to it, love it, let it accompany you in whatever you do... hell you might even end up sleeping with it, it is THAT good. One thing that is for sure is that you will have had a taste of one of (well, I won't mince words) - THE BEST INDEPENDANT LABEL IN THE WORLD... I defy you not to want to check out some of their other releases.
