Gez Varley
Mark Bell
[DJ Martin Williams]


LFO is an English techno act on the Warp Records label. LFO were pioneers of the bass-heavy techno music of the late 1980s to mid-1990s. Originally, the group was comprised of Gez Varley and Mark Bell. LFO is now Bell alone.
The group's name is derived from the abbreviation for the term low-frequency oscillation, a synthesis technique widely used in electronic music.

Varley and Bell met while studying at Leeds and gave their first track, the eponymous "LFO", to Nightmares on Wax. The popularity of the demo in clubs led to the track being released by the Sheffield-based Warp Records in 1990, and it was a Top 20 hit in the U.K., reaching number 12 in the singles charts.

Their follow-up single, "We Are Back", was released in the summer of 1991.
DJ Martin (Martin Williams) is credited as a cowriter and coproducer of the track "LFO" but was not a member of the group.
