Yorkshire bleeps 'n' bass

Huge sub-genre from around 1990:

LFO - LFO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HROMVIHGpLE
Ability 2 - Pressure dub: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2MAscbsGuE
Juno - Soul Thunder: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGL0y_0i0vI
Sweet Exorcist - Test One: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOzWrJ6nPIo

Too bad that most of the producers either disappeared (Juno, Ability 2) or completely changed their sound (LFO, Nightmares on Wax), and that this was pretty much the last time that the North of England produced any innovative electronic music.

    LFO were quality, got a fair bit of their stuff.
     
    A lot went on round Yorkshire at that time, well productive.

    I still rate LFO now, and this has to be one of my favourite vids: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53Zq1I5_WAA

    I lived in Leeds around '98/'99, but was pretty disappointed at how the electronic music scene seemed to have completely dropped off at that point. Iration Steppas parties in the Mandela Centre were always big though.

    Donk far surpasses bleeps and bass in the overall development of electronica.

    Mark Bell is still a sick producer and class tunes under the LFO name still turn up occasionally. The last Nightmares On Wax album was shite

    No you are right, Northern soul was less well known Motown, Stax etc tunes that had a certain sound brought over by DJs or imported from US.

    I'm surpised how well produced most of the tunes sound even today, especially the Warp stuff. There's a good 'top 20 bleeps and bass' here: http://www.factmagazine.co.uk/index.php?Itemid=27&id=852&option=com_content&task=view

    yeah, Simon Reynolds knows what's what innit, loved the way he's always on the side
    of Bleep / Hardcore / Jungle as opposed to prog house or whatever in Energy Flash, and
    later UKG, Grime & Bassline.. man knows his stuff ('The Hardcore Continuum' in his words..)

    He's right though, there IS a distinct thread you can follow through these styles of uniqely UK
    styles of music, it makes perfect sense & 'those that know' can clearly see it..

    And, yeah, I know mans on here got no love for Bassline, but if you look at it closer (not the
    cheesy R&B remixes) then it fits in with what's gone on in past with UK Hardcore music and
    it all makes sense..

    Anyways, here's another few mixes for those that get it..
