Biography

Peter Ford is one of the most recognizable names in current dancefloor techno and was one of the founders of the U.K. acid house scene. He's released records under a slew of pseudonyms, including Casino Classix, El Mal, Solcyc, Simprini Risin', 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 classic cuts such as "Oochy Koochy," "Children of the Revolution," and "Fetish." Material has also appeared on Sire, Source, and Insumision/Transglobal. He's released four full-length albums to date, including the debut Fordtrax (a staple of most techno DJs) and 1997's Headphone Easyrider, one of his more listener-friendly albums. His recent work has appeared mostly through Trelik and Ifach — two of the U.K.'s most highly regarded experimental techno labels, and both of which Ford has a hand in managing (Trelik together with Eon's Ian Loveday; Ifach with Mark Broom). He's also collaborated with Ian Loveday on a number of projects (including Minimal Man), both for Trelik and for William Orbit's Guerrilla label. Less active as a remixer, Ford has reconfigured tracks for Stefan Robbers' Florence project and pop techno group S'Express, among others.
