Together with a few others on Warp Records. The LFO Remix also contains some serious deep bass. Love Mentok 1 on the remix twelve. Absolute humdinger of a classic.

However, this is the biggest and baddest of the two. I actually really like the other bassline on this tune aswell which alternates with the sub bass. The Clonking/Tone style one. Dare I say, I actually prefer it. It contains so much character and is so well defined within the mix. Absolutely love it. And those fantastic, soothing, trippy, inspiring string pads with an endless build up of peaks and troughs...Doesn't get any better than that really.

Loved this and all the other warp releases at the time. Used to see the warp sleeve and just buy it without even hearing it first. Nightmares on wax,testone,forgemasters even tricky disco all safely tucked up in my garage.

Corker of a track and indeed a 12”. Good to play when testing (or trying to blow) subwoofers well.

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.
