Bootleg of the Week: Technopolis Volume 7

Nearing the end of the bootleg Technopolis series, Volume 7 features two Front 242 tracks, both of which have 'official' releases outright, but are bootlegged here.
First is "Rhythm of Time [Messengers from Neptune Mix]" which appears on the 7" vinyl release and later on "Mix@ge Mut@ge" and "Body To Body (1985 Version)" which originally appeared on the compilation "This Is Electronic Body Music"

Once again the artwork rips H.R. Giger, although this one very near resembles Volume 1 in the series. The black CD is unchanged.

Also of note is the Depeche Mode track here "Strange Love (Discotech Mix)" as it makes heavy use of the "Hey Poor" sample from "Welcome To Paradise" throughout the track.

Since Kraftwerk and Depeche Mode collectors go for this CD as well, it seems always a bit harder to find despite the material being rather recycled. Expect to pay $25-$50.

Track List:

  1. Kraftwerk:  "Numbers (Wicked Mix)"
  2. Depeche Mode:  "Strange Love (Discotech Mix)"
  3. Depeche Mode:  "Everything Counts (Bomb Beyond The Yalu Mix)"
  4. Depeche Mode:  "Sea of Sin (Ultra Hot Razor Mix)"
  5. Depeche Mode:  "Somebody (Germix)"
  6. Depeche Mode:  "Enjoy The Silence (Ultra Hot Razor Mix)"
  7. Front Line Assembly:  "Final Impact (Razormaid Mix)"
  8. Spock:  "Never Trust A Klingon (Gravity Version)"
  9. Front 242:  "Body To Body (1985 Version)"
  10. Front 242:  "Rhythm of Time (Messengers From Neptune)"
  11. Depeche Mode:  "Strange Love (Powerhouse Mix)"
