Label: Warp Records ‎– WARP LP3. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album. I have this album framed on my lounge wall. First proper LP I ever bought and will always, always be my favourite record of all time. Nothing comes close to this fantastic collection of tunes.

By: LFO (1991, Electronic). 3. Simon From Sydney.

Album · 1991 · 14 Songs. Warp Records' roots lie in a short-lived subgenre of house called Sheffield bleep, and LFO's 1991 debut LP-the third album released on the label-captures the style in all its livewire glory. Unvarnished drum machines and sampled percussion collide in spiky, herky-jerky rhythms; shivering square-wave bass, primitive computer voices, and cheap synths round out the chilly, minimalist atmosphere. They're at their punchiest (and catchiest) on "LFO (Leeds Warehouse Mix)" and "We Are Back," but the whole album is a treat; dance music has rarely sounded more alien

LFO - Frequencies LP. Masterpiece, any sluttage on kit? strings and stabs especially? . we used TR 808, TR 909, TR 727, Synthi, Casio FZ-10, System 100 and an Atari running Creator.

I wish Warp would repress the classics of their back catalogue, especially this one. A massive landmark in UK dance music.
porosh
Oh wow, I never realised. I can see it on there now, thanks !
Pemand
This was reissued a few years ago! Double vinyl, cut deep - and with two extra tracks.
OTANO
Simon From Sydney was used on an advert for the Volkswagen Golf in 2004.

Zamo

A great album that has stood the test of time. Electro, Acid House, Techno, it's all there. Classic. Sometimes I listen to it in the car on the way to work early in the morning, and my mind goes back 20 odd years, thinking of being a car, driving back from clubs early in the morning. This rates as one of the best Electronic albums of all time.
Exellent
Frequencies lp is a very innovative take on techno in 1991. Some of the now classic tracks prove to be dancefloor friendly, but the album had more. Some tracks have more relation to electro from the 80s, and then some head towards the rave and acid house madness that was occuring in 1991; specially in Europe. A great album that has stand the test of time.
Munimand
Awesome techno with elements of trance and electro! Aged well for the most part compared to most other techno music from the '90-'91 scene(the title track remains a classic even today!).
Xar
brit 90 's at his best, you just can see the wharehouses filled with turnig lights and people wawing on the beat ,amazing ,vintage
Ishnjurus
One of the most tremendous electronic albums ever made! 20 years since its release, it sounds fresh, unique, and unbelievable: just hear "L.F.O." for churning speaker-erupting bass wedded to sharp beats and mind-blowing chirps. "We Are Back" similarly explodes with distortion (or is it just so loud that mere home speakers cannot handle it?) and rapidly expanding synths. For that matter, "Love is the Message", "Mentok 1", and just about every other track on the album are classics too. Quite honestly, THIS is where 90's-era electronic music starts, and if history and influence are any guide, just may be where the music ends too. **This is an album that sounds best on LOUD speakers.**

I have this album framed on my lounge wall. First proper LP I ever bought and will always, always be my favourite record of all time. Nothing comes close to this fantastic collection of tunes.
Flamekiller
To me "Frequencies" is one of the most genius electronic album ever made.I think there is not enough words to say how this work is timeless, very hard to surpass.The perfect synthesis of electro, house, acid, and techno, everything far ahead of it's time.It starts with an acid house's pionneers tribute and it ends up with a mysterious dark ambient ballad. Moody and effective tunes, downtempo or uptempo everything is smartly packed here.The sound research is also very important, (huge modular synths and analogical materials) no cliché.If you listen this album at one stretch you would only realise that Bell and Varley have been touched by God's blessings.A Masterpiece!
Hrguig
If you like electronic music then this should be in your collection, considered by some to be the first techno album, Tommy Boy picked it up because they thought it sounded like electric funk. One word to sum this album up is "groundbreaking", LFO has a certain style that is unmatched even until today. I am shocked to see only 5 members have this.
Quendant
I had a Warp slipmat with my copy of this promo (black with orange logo).
Tygrarad
a classic release on warp. released in 91, this album is still incredible. my favorites include LFO. Love is the Message. We Are Back. and Simon From Sydney. but everything is excellent. this release was way ahead of its time, and continues to inspire me.
