Boomkat Product Review:
At flipping last The Force Dimension’s EBM classic and proto-rave touchstone sees a proper reissue, including the Red & Blue LP versions and the all-timer ‘200 FA’
After cropping up on various comps and LP reissues over the past decade, The Force Dimension’s finest moments are now in the Optimo spotlight, highlighting their slightly synth-pop styled take on EBM that first appeared on Belgium’s KK Records in the late ‘80s. Their tracks transcended leathered-up EBM to find favour in Belgian new beat clubs as well as the proto-rave sets of Colin Dale and the whole Wax Trax!/house crossover in Chicago, and now, more than 30 years later, they still absolutely smack.
Basically unmissable for the ecto-trigger pads and tumpin’ toms of ‘200 FA’ at the least, this EP also draws for prime cuts from the same year, such as the Klaus Nomi-in-the-darkroom styles of ‘Aqua 2000’ from their ‘Dust’ 12”, and the dodgier EBM of ‘All Systems Out.’ Interestingly ‘Tension’ appears in two forms, a ‘Red’ mix by pivotal producer Luc Van Acker (Ministry) that was released at the time, but the band didn’t really like it, and ended up getting Dirk Ivens (Klinik) to lend some muscle to a whole new ‘Blue’ version of the album, from where this EP’s superior version comes.
