OMG ACEN VINYL…But…Wait, what? How? and other questions….

Okay, so for the impatient, here are the links to buy this very limited vinyl…

For UK and Europe and the rest of the world (depending on exchange rate and postage costs) :

For USA and rest of the world (depending on exchange rate and postage costs):

Alright, lets get down to business. I know a large percentage of you were expecting the next Kniteforce Pre-Sale to be the brand new Hyper On Experience EPs. And that was what I was expecting too, ha ha. We have a wicked bundle ready to go on that, with 12″ vinyl remastered represses of the Fun For All The Family EP and the Keep It In The Family EP (Plus Liquid and Luna-C Remixes, 2 CDs of bonus content and a superb Hyper On Experience slipmat). And that is due to go up for pre-sale at the end of the month as planned.

But the Acen vinyl came about in a bit of a strange way. I have been emailing with Acen for a while now, doing my very best to tempt him onto Kniteforce as I felt like 1. He would find the perfect home here and 2. He is one of my all time heros and 3. WHAT ELSE WOULD I DO??? ITS ACEN!!! ha ha.

Other labels were also wooing (theres a word we don’t use anymore) Acen, and it ended up with him putting the digital releases for the two versions of “Play 2092” with the lovely chaps at Hardcore Energy. However, Hardcore Energy were unable to get a vinyl sorted out, and perhaps it was underestimated how much people would want the vinyl? So a few days ago, Acen asked me if I could help out in that department, and I of course said “nah”.

Haha, as if. I jumped at the opportunity.

But it had to be done fast because otherwise the momentum gets lost. And I would need to be able to offer the digitals with the vinyl (24 bit wav and 320MP3) and I wanted them remastered by Jon Doe cos he does a stunning job, and also, I also wanted to have the bonus content of Return To 2092 added to both the vinyl and the digital. Hardcore Energy were very gracious and Acen wanted to move on it, so we got the whole thing organised in under 24 hours.

So here we are. The new vinyl is up for presale now, it has been sent to be cut, and I have pulled in every favour possible so that the vinyl will be turned around and in your hands really quickly!

I am hoping this will be the first of many new Acen releases, and I have been told he is working with Dyce as well (The House Crew) so who knows what the future could hold?

All I know is, this week I have been working with Acen for this release, Hyper On Experience for the next release and as part of a run of represses and new material, with Sublove and Liquid also lining up releases in the near future. How amazing is that? I am working with my heros, and it is god damn brilliant! You can check out the artwork for forthcoming KFs below…

In the meantime, if you are not interested in the vinyl and only want to get the digital files of Play 2092 Part 1 and Part 2, you can do so HERE

So stay tuned…there is a whole lot more to come….

    Although I’ve been already sent the self-titled tune from Acen himself as a promo, this is a release that had to be vinylized, that had to be energizing while holding it and thanx to Kniteforce all done as deserves to this legendary Oldskool Hardcore king and the label as well.

    I’m very sure that we’ll get more from him.
    Getting himself on a live set, first ever after 15 years (BangFace 2019) means a lot for more in my humble opinion…
    Let’s support this release Hardcore Brothers & Sisters!

      P.S. I’ve just meant to add also that I’ve just ordered my 12″ EP; something that everyone should do if respecting this music and its roots!

      It’s been an incredible 2019 already!

    This is ridiculous!
    I’m of a certain age (yes, even older than Chris) and I really never thought I’d be seeing this kind of thing again. The content from the ‘new’ guys is stunning but add in legends such as Acen, HOE, Liquid, Sub love etc and it just blows me away. If my wife wasn’t so lazy (well, ill but still inconsiderate) I’d have bought the whole lot.

    Here’s to a bright retro future!
