Grin DM is for me the reason i like elecrtonic music in the first place. I first hear DM when i was an impressionable 12 year old in 1985. I totally loved the sound then and i still do, only thing is that in my mind they went downhill after Violator and i have not bought their latest records at all because i find them boring. BUT omg how good the old ones are, Broken Frame for e axample is a musical masterpiece, and the remixes then !!!! i think i have very comprehesive collection of their music on vinyl from the 80`s and i can still listen to them without shame.
I agree 100% with Statto. Awful, awful band. Sorry!

love Depeche. seen them live twice. would love to go again. i do also like their new stuff - Ultra and Exciter, Playing the Angel is so-so.
back in time i used to hate DM, even not really knowing, what they sounded like. it was only cause all russian guys were dressing up and having haircut as Dave in the beginning of 80's. letters "DM" were tagged/carved/painted on all walls, even in hospital someone had carved "DM" on the wall. Baffled
Well I like 'em.

Everything Counts (Live version) is a long time fave. Still sends those goosebumps all over.

I randomly watched this early this morning before going to work. A 2008 documentary release. Some of it is bizarre - the German family who reenact the music videos as a family past time is crazy.  But yeah, Russians were something else here.

In Russia, May 9 is Victory Day, a national holiday. It’s also the birthday of Dave Gahan, lead singer with Depeche Mode, and a group of Muscovite fans have declared it Dave Day, gathering together to celebrate the group with homemade banners, mass sing-alongs and club nights. In Russia and countries of the former Soviet Union, the band’s music has been treasured since it was only available on illegal bootlegged cassettes in the 1980s, and it formed the soundtrack of the march toward freedom those countries embarked upon following the fall of the Berlin Wall. This situation is mirrored in Tehran, where fans take huge risks in listening to their music in a country that has banned all Western music since the Islamic Revolution. In the UK, the church of St Edward King and Martyr in Cambridge holds services for goths where they play Depeche Mode records. Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller and filmmaker Nicholas Abrahams tell these and other stories of faith and devotion from around the world in this fascinating and inspired documentary about fandom, which is at turns bizarre, funny, sad and often touching.
I like the early synth pop stuff mainly. Some later stuff is good but almost none of the latest stuff.
I quite like the recent Martin Gore solo stuff. Listened to the "Third Chimpanzee" release once again this morning. No matter how abstract, the pop song structures are still there. Very well done. I'm sure Gore could do this stuff in his sleep.

Solid remix release to accompany as well.

This is the third in my On 45 mixes.

When I was a teenager there was a popular series of hit records under the umbrella title of Stars on 45, where popular songs would be combined into a medley, with a common beat and tempo underneath. It was like a kind of greatest hits of a certain artist or style of music. It was a novel and playful idea, and I always wondered about following a similar approach on music I actually enjoyed.

This mix exclusively features only the music of the British music producer Martin Gore (b.1961), better known as a member of popular electronic beat combo Depeche Mode. The mix was created entirely live using Native Instruments Traktor, Traktor Kontrol S2 and a CR-78 drum machine. What you hear is what happened in real time, and a tribute to an amazing artist.

Sadly, because of a copyright claim I've had to awkwardly chop out a part of this mix at 06.57, so it might sound perhaps a little odd at one point. My apologies, but I'd rather that than no-one ever hear the mix again.

This series of audio mixes was originally created for a popular online mix channel but they have now restricted access only to paid subscribers and felt an audience deserved to hear these mixes
