A former teenage breakdancer, Bell was one half of seminal Warp Records act LFO - one of the most crucial of the ‘bleep-n-bass' acts to emerge from the North of England in the early 1990s, and the group behind the still-lessonic 1991 LP Frequencies - an easy pick for one of the best electronic LPs on the 1990s.
Bell later went on to work extensively with Björk, collaborating on the bulk of her albums from 1997's Homogenic onwards, and other notable collaborators include Depeche Mode (whose Exciter album he produced) and Deltron 3030.
