B IS FOR BABY FORD (PT 1)

Baby Ford (real name: Peter Ford) makes experimental minimal techno and is one of the founders of the U.K acid house scene. He has been releasing tracks since the late 80s.

 

He’s released records under a slew of pseudonyms, including Casino Classix, El Mal, Solcyc and his most frequent, Baby Ford. His early work – heavily influenced by the late-’80s acid house sound, as well as Chicago producers such as Marshall Jefferson, Ron Trent, Armando, and Larry Heard – appeared primarily through the Rhythm King label, and included classics such as ‘Oochy Koochy’ and ‘Fetish’. He also released ‘Children of the Revolution’, a rework of the Marc Bolan classic which was lame. But it did have the offbeat house gem “Hi Mr Logan”, which sadly I can’t find. Material has also appeared on Sire, Source, and Insumision/Transglobal.
