Overview

One of the most influential electronic bands ever, Depeche Mode have waved a flag for innovation and evolution since defining synth-pop at the cusp of the '80s. They were also champions of the remix decades before Britney, Madonna, and Diet Sprite jumped on the DJ bandwagon. This single-disc collection not only captures some of the finest reworkings of Mode music but also offers a roundabout history lesson. The "Schizo Mix" of "Just Can't Get Enough," Depeche's first U.K. hit, for example, displays prime electro-pop, complete with plinking beats and a winsome (Vince Clarke–penned) melody. At the opposite pole are brand-new mixes of two standout ballads from Depeche's stellar Violator: a breathy, delirious version of the moody "Halo" by glammy synth queen Goldfrapp and a rock-centric take on "Enjoy the Silence," which Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda smeared heavily with dense electric guitars. In between you'll find sadistically powerful beats on Underworld's menacing "Hard Mix" of "Barrel of a Gun" and Jonny Dollar & Portishead's "Jeep Rock Mix" of "In Your Room," the latter shot through with clubby bleeps and scratches; alongside Air's spacious re-envisioning of the electro-pop ballad "Home" and a suitably down-tempo presentation of "Useless" from Kruder & Dorfmeister. If nothing else, Remixes 81-04 underscores Depeche Mode's deep and ongoing influence on dance and electronic music purveyors of every generation and every bent.
