Boomkat Product Review:
**Remastered, hand-numbered edition of 500 with CD copy including the Luc Van Acker-produced 'Blue Album' plus 'Tension' 12" tracks** The Force Dimension were one of the most distinctive units to emerge from the Lowland's late '80s EBM scene. This compilation collects two versions of their hard-to-find self-titled 1989 debut for KK Records, together with the killer 'Tension' single, split over an LP and CD included free inside. As the story goes, the group wrote their debut album with EBM/industriual legend Luc Van Acker (Revolting Cocks, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult) and Jean Pierre Everaerts at the legendary ZAS studio in Belgium. But they weren't happy with the results, and ended up recording another version with producer Dirk Ivens later that year. The first - and in our opinion stranger, superior version - would become the 'Blue Version', and the 2nd would become known as the 'Red Version', both sold separately at the time but are now packaged together for the first time in this reissue set. Fast fwd 25 years and they stand out as some of the finest examples of that narco-tech, sexy '89 sound which crossed boundaries between Belgium, Ibiza and Goa, but wasn't Detroit techno, New Beat or Acid house. Check the samples and you'll know exactly what we mean. Highly Recommended!
