Well I have looked at the purple sleeve and the black sleeve plus listened to both pieces of black vinyl.... The verdict.... They both sound the same but the prices are significantly different.. Black cover wins!

While Manchester was taking all the plaudits. There really was a great scene in Yorkshire in 89/91with the so called Bleep scene.
Great bands , producers and DJs with the like of LFO , Unique 3 , Nightmares on Wax , Sweet Exorcist and The Forgemasters etc....
LFO - LFO killer track one of my desert island discs.......

I'm not sure of the exact date LFO (Leeds Warehouse Mix) was pressed (I'm not talking about being fully released). All I know is that it was being played as early as May 1990 on London pirate radio station, Dance FM, as they were caining it endlessly for good reason, amongst other radio stations. Probably even further back on Sheffield radio stations. The LFO Remix was played a few weeks later.

Boy did it cause tremors, in more ways than one...

According to LFO in the June '96 issue of Muzik, his track allegedly sold around 120,000 copies.

I seem to remember a story about the boys sneaking into a club in Leeds which was Warehouse I presume tape in hand (damn remember those days playing demos on tape in big clubs all bass and no midrange) getting the dj to play it and Rob & Steve from Warp were there and well Warp became what it became.

A ridiculously bass heavy set of tracks, with baselines designed to kill your rib cage. The first time I heard these tracks i couldn't believe it. Still to this day I find this such inspiring music. Track 4 and Probe in particular are so simple but so deep and hypnotic. I love this period of music and I will always remain here in the early nineties in spirt because of tracks like this. Sublime

Why oh why did i sell this and all the other first 9 releases on this sublime label. LFO was the track that used to make my chest cavity feel like it was going to explode. These early warehouse sub bass monsters are blindingly ingenious tracks. still relevant, raw and powerful stuff.

Back in the late 80s/early '90s, I lived near Leeds and was therefore fortunate to have attended quite a few Leeds Warehouse events.

One night in summer 1990 stands out in particular - it must have been the week this was released, as I'd just picked up a copy in Crash! Records earlier that week (I used to buy records there weekly at the time) and I'd only been dating the woman I later married for a few weeks at that point.

As soon as the opening notes of this tune appeared, I was straight up onto the podium (to the left of the main entrance) and was going absolutely crazy. As was what appeared to be the entire venue!

They also played "Testone" that night, to a similar response. That's not to say that any of the other tunes received a subdued reaction from the crowd, but the response to those two local(ish)-produced tunes was something which has stayed in my memory to this day.

The only person, strangely enough, to be a little subdued in her reaction was probably my then girlfriend :) She wasn't exactly a raver, and never really became one either :)

Either way, it didn't really matter - those were great tunes and great times for me, and they were only really surpassed a few years later, in the Goa Trance/Hard Trance/Acid Techno scenes of London between 1994-2000.

I seem to have read quite a lot of anti-1990s press recently, but don't believe what the media tells you nowadays - always quoting lame, overrated 1990s references like Oasis/Spice Girls/the "Friends" TV series, etc. - the 1990s were an AMAZING time to be alive if you liked proper dance music.

All three tracks are excellent, but "Probe" is a particular favourite of mine, and was also big on the pirate stations around Leeds/Bradford at the time as well :)
