LONDON (CelebrityAccess) — Mark Bell, British musician and house music producer and a member of the pioneering electronic group LFO has died. He was 43 at the time of his passing.
LFO, composed initially of Bell and Gez Varley were pioneers of early acid house in the late 1980s and 1990s, but Varley left the group in 1996, leaving Bell as the sole member.
Bell also worked with a number of well-known artists, including Bjork, starting with her seminal 1997 album "Homogenic" and can be seen on several of her live music CDs, handling sequencers. He also produced Depeche Mode's 2001 album "Exciter."
While a specific cause of death was not announced, a note from Bell's label, Warp Records, announced that he had died last week due to complications from a surgery.
