Mark Bell is a British musician and producer of electronic house music who, as well as being a member of the pioneering electronic music group LFO[1] on Warp Records, has collaborated with a wide range of artists such as Björk and Depeche Mode, for whom he took on the production duties for the entire Exciter album. Bell hails from Lofthouse, West Yorkshire, between Leeds and Wakefield, and went to Rodillian High School.

He had the important role of producing Björk's 1997 album Homogenic, a collaboration that continues to the present day. He was involved in her tours in 1998 and the 2007–2008 tour for her album Volta. Bell can be seen on several of Björk's live music DVDs released for her DVD box set running a complicated rack of equipment that produces the sequencing required for Björk to perform her music live. He also appears, suspended in mid-air, in the video for her single Declare Independence. He has contributed numerous remixes to her singles and compilations as well as remixing the likes of Depeche Mode and Dave Clarke.

He has also recorded under the aliases Clark, Clark & Lofthouse, Counterpoint, Fawn, and Speed Jack.
