LFO - LFO but without the L .. F .. O?


Recommended Posts

So LFO by LFO, a Warp classic.

Is there a mix of this that gets rid of the voice saying "L ... F ... O"? Because in this day and age, that would improve the track immensely. Although I can see why they put it in originally.

Why would it "improve the track immensly" though?

The voice is a kindof nod to pop music and getting radio play, imho.

I was 16 years old when this track came out. It got played on Radio 1. You could go to Woolworths and buy the 7" single (which is precisely what I did at the time). It got to No 12 in the UK charts.

And thats all fine and dandy at the time.

But 30 years later I would prefer it without the voice. If you imagine it without the voice, its more abstract, just pure electronica

Someone posted a site where you can do that, can't remember if it was a thread or a post in a thread... 

Edit: https://splitter.ai

The 5 stem model for example, can extract vocals, drums, piano, bass and other (guitar, synths, etc...), while the 2 stem model extracts the instrumental and the vocals.

Never tried it so have no idea if it works alright...

You’re old enough to know this is a thick as fuck position to fall into.

It was a commercial success because LFO were so damned good and, drum roll, acid house. At the time I never considered that a deliberate aim of LFO, more an accident of fate. Insinuating it was a pop nod is complete bollocks.

There could be what’s known as a dub of this track, sitting in a vault somewhere, but we’d have heard it by now. Maybe contact the artists with this question, come conundrum, and see what they think.
