Remixes 2: 81-11 (1-disc version)
by Depeche Mode
Released: Jun 2011
Label: Rhino/Warner Bros.
Depeche Mode spin 30 years of remixes into an infinite universe of forking paths in this collection of rare, out-of-print and unreleased versions. Club jocks like Bushwacka and Eric Prydz deliver tough progressive reworks, while bands like M83 and Peter Bjorn and John ply more indie-friendly wares; Claro Intelecto, Monolake and Efdemin all pursue more minimalist approaches. And vintage mixes like "Fly on the Windscreen (Death Mix)" revive the glory days of '80s import EPs, with their treasure trove of B-sides.
