Depeche Mode just released a new album; although it’s somewhat of a “Greatest Hits” album. It’s called “Remixes 81-04” and contains three CDs of the best and most obscure remixes they have released. These remixes were previously only available on limited to strictly limited maxi-singles and special editions.
Some of my favorite ones which are featured on the compilation are :
Everything Counts (Absolut Mix – previously only availabled on an extremely limited 10″ maxi-single)
Strangelove (Blind Mix – from the limited maxi-single)
Barrel of a Gun (Underworld Hard Mix – from the limited maxi-single)
I Feel You (Renegade Soundwave Afghan Surgery Mix from the limited maxi-single)
Are People People (from a very limited maxi-single, not availble on CD before IIRC)
…and then there are a lot I haven’t heard before, but sounds absolutely fabulous:
Enjoy the Silence (Timo Maas Extended Remix)
Master and Servant (ON-Usound Sc�ence Fiction Dance Hall)
Home (Air Around the Golf Remix)
Little 15 (Ulrich Schnauss Remix)
Nothing (Headcleanr Rock Mix)
…and many more!
