The Bleep scene emerged predominantly in Sheffield England, the spiritual home of British Techno, and was spearheaded by the label Warp records, which in its infancy, also went under the moniker of Outer Rhythm ( as it had a distribution deal with Rhythm records ) The other major force was the Network records label, headed up by the legendary Rob Gordon. Apart from the obvious bleep sound, the other major factor was the thundering sub bass many of these records had. Rob Gordon was particularly talented at this and hence got a lot of production work. It was very much a UK sound and was probably influenced by the widespread popularity of reggae sound system parties in many parts of England. However that is not to say all the tunes here are from the UK, Joey Beltram puts in an early shout with Lost Entity, Derrick May as R-Thyme, even Marc Kinchen ( M.K ) gets in with a tune called first Bass and the under rated Neal Howard with his Chicago classic, Indulge.
