Former LFO member Mark Bell is dead. The pioneering electronic music star passed away last week from "complications after an operation," according to his label Warp Records.
Warp's statement adds that Bell's friends and family are asking for privacy at "this difficult time," but doesn't reveal any other details about his passing.
Bell co-founded LFO in 1988 and scored a top 20 single in 1990 with the group's self-titled track.
Bell switched to producing in the mid-1990s, and worked with artists like Depeche Mode and Björk. He collaborated with the latter on each of her album's from 1997's Homogenic to 2011's Biophilia. Björk took to Twitter on Monday to share a remix Bell did of her song "Possibly Maybe," as well as LFO's single "Love Is the Message."
