De / Vision
"Da * Mals" 
The content is about the earliest days ,the first recordings of De/Vision.

The label Synthetic Product Records was allowed to release such a 'Best of'
compilation in 2007 at the earliest. Now in the times of a synthpop lull and
to recall memories of the past, this CD will finally be released. 

In 1988, the band De/Vision still consisted of members Markus, Stefan,
Steffen and Thomas. Puns and word jokes were order of the day. Statements in
interviews that De/Vision has something to do with division, that they chose
the letter 'D' to be found on the same CD shelf as Depeche Mode , eventually
lead to the album title 'Da * Mals' with songs from the years
1988 - 1992.

For all those who always wanted to know how De/Vision started, to experience
soft techno music (today it is called Old-School-Synthpop) of the early 90s,
how De/Vision sounds without producer and why it was so difficult for
De/Vision in their infancy, we recommend (but not only to those curious)
this release.

The first responses to this album show that 'Da * Mals' is the fans' kind of
thing - not only what the music expresses but also the band's humour.

With the first edition, there also comes a CD with the work of De/Vision
ex-member Stefan Blender who left the band in 1991. 
With the 50th release at the label Synthetic Product Records
(15 years after the first release) Stefan Blender will finally be appreciated at least a bit.
A very special feature is the song 'Tears of missing days' based on a tape recording of 1988.
