So was this a bold departure, a total misstep, or a calculated play to cross over? Dealing with the all-consuming lifeline we can be to others and the God-like role we can take on for someone in relationships, it was a hooky observation of obsession or reassurance, depending on which side of the narrative you leaned. But it would be a long seven-month wait before that appetite was satiated. It combined much loved elements of lush synth beds, haunting melodies, and aching lyrics, which coalesced with house beats and slick guitar lines.
There was something inviting. Something powerful in those declarations. Something that you could latch on to and feel a part of. And so a month-and-a-half later the moment arrived. That moment of excitement buzzing through my body as I bought the CD from my local record store, raced home not daring to peek at the lyric book for fear of spoiling the element of surprise.
And as I sat in front of my stereo I pressed play. This was a band finding a new sound. Finding scope in a barer telling of their musical story. In the spaces between notes, the sound was given space to grow, and so each song feels bigger, bolder. Gore had always had a way with words. Somehow expressing his innermost thoughts and desires in such personal revelations that connected to millions the world over. And now, all those years later I still find myself being regularly surprised about the effect their music still has on me.
As a dedicated follower of everything Depeche Mode have released over the past years I not only enjoyed their own songs quite a lot but also the countless remixes that were created for their songs. Over the past weeks I found myself revisiting some of these reworks and since I love to create mixtapes under my Burnout Sumner alias I started to compile some of my favourites just to see whether I can produce something like a highlight set. In the end the project got bigger and bigger and resulted in an over eight-hour long and four-parted mixtape series.
There are a few familiar names in there and if you like to learn a bit more about these tapes please continue reading. You are kindly invited to dance in your living room while blasting this one through your stereo. This second tape dives a bit deeper into the dark club territory and works as a direct continuation of the first one. Over the past forty years Depeche Mode not only invited producers from the field of electronic music to rework their music but also other bands and artists that came from totally different fields.
They hired Air to rework Home before Moon Safari was even released.
