MARK BELL tribute (RIP) from DJ WARP + new music from LAKKER, GRAZE + CHIMPO are featured selections on this week’s program. WIDMAN begins with an extended set of new drumfunk + leftfield drum n’bass, then into dubstep-tempo bass sounds, starting with another UK underground pioneer lost too soon–RIP SPACE APE–and new cuts from LAKKER + canada’s GRAZE (XI + ADAM MARSHALL). for the second hour, frequent guest–and musical encyclopedia–DJ WARP selects some of his favorite + most important cuts from MARK BELL, the influential leeds, UK electronic musician and producer. BELL died 10/13/2014 after complications following surgery. BELL is best known for his work as part of foundational WARP RECORDS act LFO, one of the pioneers of the late 80s/early 90s UK bleep house sound, whose self-titled single became a rave anthem and debut LP “frequencies” influenced a generation of DJs and electronic producers. BELL had a similar, if less known, effect on popular music, collaborating with BJORK on most of her albums from “homogenic” (1997) to “biophilia” (2011). we hope you enjoy this tribute to late, great MARK BELL.
