Depeche Mode

Well Depeche Mode continue to defy expectations and remain relevant. They recently released a single of Suffer Well , from the album Playing the Angel, with the B side as Better Days. The list of remixers is impressive. I had heard that Martin Gore had started DJing minimal stuff out and about, and the few remixes I have heard that they commissioned confirms this. He certainly knows his stuff if he is playing. They have had James Holden, Tiga, Metrope, and this particularly tasty track by Basteroid as remixers.

This has an 80s EBM flavor to it, but is tighter and somehow darker than that genere.
