Webster! Shame on you! We all know that acceleration is merely a change in velocity. A change in direction with constant speed is acceleration, as is a decrease in speed.

Record label, owned by Daniel Bell, currently defunct.. Accelerate releases were all bleepy and minimalistic, sparse techno tracks mostly by Mr. Bell himself, under moniker DBX, although three first releases (The Silicon Ghetto ep's) were by various different people (including Mr. Bell, of course) - rumors tell that at least Richie Hawtin was involved. Bell's biggest hit, "Losing Control" was released on this label, before licensed to Peacefrog in UK.
