Repeat – Hurricane Felix

Primo UK Techno from the “supergroup” Repeat; made up of the two guys from Plaid, Dave Hill, and Mark Broom. All of these guys collaborated to varying degree’s with other monikers for Baby Ford’s ifach label, and the lo-fi, minimal sound that dominated that label is present on this track from the band’s 1995 album ‘Repeats’.


Repeat – Tomorrows People

Another slice of deep, ambient Techno from the quartet of Ed Handley, Andy Turner, Dave Hill, and Mark Broom. A slice of electronic beauty.

Repeat – Lilt-A

Mark Broom, Dave Hill, and the duo of Ed Handley and Andy Turner (Of The Black Dog and Plaid fame) got together and formed a kind of UK Techno supergroup that produced a handful of singles and EP’s, and one album. The album was called ‘Repeats’ (1995), and the act was called Repeat. Their material wasn’t banging Dancefloor fodder, but rather slotted in alongside the discrete, Detroit influenced work of the aforementioned Black Dog. Just no one mention IDM.

Mark Broom – Intron

UK Techno stalwart Mark Broom with a tune from backĀ in the day. This track is a minimal combination of spaced strings and percolating Bass synth underpinned by a subtle kick drum and crisp handclaps. Produced by Dave Hill (another one from the Ifach crew), and released in 1995.

Sympletic – Space 4-2

UK Techno from Baby Ford’s Ifach label back in 1994. Sympletic is Mark Broom and Dave Hill. and here they’re giving us some Techno which is expansive, and dancefloor orientated at the same time. UK techno that looked to Detroit, but gave it its own spin.

Sympletic – No Name

Dark Techno from Mark Broom & Dave Hill on Baby Ford’s Ifach label. This deep and dirty tune was from back in 1994 and still sounds just as good today.
