Instrumental mix is hypnotic, psychedelic, funky, bad-ass acid house : )

An absolute anthem of Acid, and an interesting step in music history : of course, Belgian producers were clearly influenced by the Acid House releases that appeared since 86, especially from Trax, like Phuture's releases. But what is great here is that, trying to make some "typical" acid tacks, they invented an original european acid style (fellow uk friends would say "continental") : more industrial, with dark and appealing vocals (sometimes a bit stupidly sexy, ok but it was enjoyably daring back then ;-)
They also used the 303 a very different way : more extreme and gloomy.

Of course it was because of the EBM/New Beat influence, and it is interesting to compare this formula to the one created in the same time by UK producers that were trying to do the same thing (i.e. creating Chicago-influenced acid tracks) : they usually ended up with tracks more clubby and housey, just like Baby Ford's "Ford Trax" for ex.
You had to have grown listening to new wave, industrial and EBM to create the kind of Acid House we have here. You had to be Belgian

Definitely, a record like this one is everything but a follower : it is a true original recipe that still sounds great, and still creates a fascinating atmosphere.
