20 years went by since the last release from Force Dimension. But a new album is finally being released: “Machinesex”. On this new album – which you can order already – René van Dijck (synthesizers, vocals) and Betty Correa (vocals, guitar, percussion) present 13 brand new tracks, produced by the band itself.

Originally the band started out as a trio. Rene van Dijck and Tycho de Groot with effect-generator Armin Elmensdorp had sent a demo to a range of labels at the beginning of 1987. Their quest resulted in an experimental but melodic collaboration 7” with the industrial label De Fabriek. But fortunately it didn’t stop there and by 1988 the band would appear on several compilations sounding more and more EBM-like. Finally a few tapes would reach the cult label KK Records which offered them a record deal. In 1997 however the band split up.

In 2011, an attempt for a re-union was made, but failed. In 2014, however, another attempt to restart was undertaken, now with a different line-up featuring René van Dijck (synthesizers, vocals) and Betty Correa (vocals, guitar, percussion).

Enjoy these 2 new tracks from this album:

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
