Depeche Mode – Delta Machine: The Remixes

depeche mode remixes

Boysnoize Records have released two stunning Depeche Mode remixes from last year’s highly acclaimed ‘Delta Machine.’ ‘My Little Universe’ and ‘Alone’ receive the deluxe remix treatment they deserve, with Alex Ridha aka Boys Noize himself working his magic on the former and fellow BNR buddy Djedjotronic completing the stellar line up with a with a suitably dark and brooding, techno affair.

‘Delta Machine’ is the English band’s 13th studio album and was released by Columbia and Mute Records in March 2013. The record marked the end of a trilogy of records produced by acclaimed producer Ben Hillier and is considered by many as their most powerful, gothic, twisted, electronic album since ‘Violator.’ The release of the remixes continues Ridha’s musical relationship with the band, his space age version of ‘Personal Jesus’ having featured on ‘Boys Noize – The Remixes’ back in 2011.

It has been a busy past year for Alex Ridha aka Boys Noize, touring the world extensively and releasing an EP as Dog Blood and ‘Out of The Black – The Remixes’ that saw Justice, The Chemical Brothers, Blood Diamond, Jimmy Edgar and more re-calibrate some of his own techno patterns. With the announcement of another world tour this year, and a string of further releases from his BNR blueprint, the Boys Noize machine is prolific as ever.

French born and Berlin-based label mate Jérémy Cottereau aka Djedjotronic has been equally busy over the past few years. Since the release of his fifth record ‘Walk With Me’ in 2012 on BNR he has charted at number 1 onbeatport with analog bomb ‘Uranus’ and remixed Gonzales, UNKLE, Tiga, Etienne De Crecy, Chromeo and MissKittin to name a few – his trademark insane techno sound with pumping computer beats, instantly recognisable.

Brother and sister Nic and Eliza Coolidge are KNOX, a duo that pairs smoky vocals with equally hazy electronics. Their third EP, Thieving of Well, is out now on Boysnoize, and also features a remix by Throwing Snow. Below you can watch the official video for the lead track, Redline.
