"Soothe My Soul" (Feed Me Remix) - Depeche Mode

Depeche Mode's latest album that released this Spring Delta Machine has been hailed by Entertainment Weekly as "the strongest album the group has put out this century." Any festival fanatic knows that all the big DJs love to spin the Depeche Mode classics, but there's far more remix prospects in their synthpop discography than "Personal Jesus." Today I present you with a track that released back in July but has yet to be featured online, Feed Me's remix of "Soothe My Soul," the second single released off the album after "Heaven." Jon Gooch's monstrous persona has developed into a production outlet that feeds right into the meaty, synth-layering that sets him and this remix apart from a lot of the tunes circulating cyberspace right now. Jon recently pushed his album release back to October so we may possibly see this tune land a spot on the tracklisting. Stay tuned for more!

"Enjoy the Silence" - Depeche Mode (Tom Staar & Kryder Remix)

After ending 2012 with tasked remixes for the likes of Afrojack ("Can't Stop Me Now"and Swedish House Mafia ("Don't You Worry Child"), dynamic duo Tom Staar & Kryder take it back to 1990 with their rendition of Depeche Mode's hit classic "Enjoy the Silence." The edgy collaboration implements finely crafted big-room basslines that underlie harmonies consisting of quirky percussion and Progressive leads. Remixes like this one and Kryder’s individual take on The Police’s "Message In a Bottle" (Sending Out An S.O.S.) demonstrates the idea that even though technological progression may have changed the nature of music production, our greatest hits will always have influence in a constantly fluid music culture. It’s great to also see the two on their way to branding their own unique sound, as each successive track enables them to separate themselves from what Fatboy Slim calls "that generic EDM sound."
