Mark Bell, who made a name for himself in music with the EDM duo LFO and as a producer for Björk, died last week. His label, Warp Records, released a statement on their website:

It's with great sadness that we announce the untimely passing of Mark Bell of LFO who died last week from complications after an operation. Mark's family & friends request privacy at this difficult time.

Bell and Gex Farley formed LFO in England in 1988, signing to Warp Records in 1990. They would go on to become one of electronic dance music's biggest influences. Farley left the duo in 1996, but Bell continued performing as LFO until his death.

Bell also began working with Icelandic songstress Björk in 1997, producing her album 'Homogenic.' He would continue to work with her throughout the rest of his life, producing all of her albums after 'Homogenic.'

Obviously a sorrowful time for Björk, today (Oct. 13), she shared some thoughts on Twitter:
