depeche mode remixes 2: 81-11

It’s a regular Depeche Mode family reunion. On June 6, the legendary synth pop band will release Remixes 2: 81-11, a sequel of sorts to 2004’s Remixes 81-04. What makes this one special is the expanded editions include exclusive remixes by Vince Clarke and Alan Wilder —  the first time every current or former member of the band have contributed to the same release.

Remixes 2: 81-11 will be released as both a single disc and a triple disc, as well as a 6 x 12″ vinyl box set — see the full track lists below.

The collection features classic remixes released over the past 25 years from the likes of Digitalism, Dan The Automator and Peter, Bjorn & John. New remixes include tracks by Karlsson & Winnberg of Miike Snow and Röyksopp, plus Clarke’s mix of “Behind The Wheel” and Wilder’s take on “In Chains.”

For a sample, here’s the UNKLE reconstruction of Playing The Angel‘s “John The Relevator”:

From 2006, this is the Oliver Huntemann & Stephan Bodzin Dub of “Everything Counts”:

And finally, M83’s rework of “Suffer Well”:

UPDATE:
The band has made a stream available of the lead single for Remixes 2, “Personal Jesus (Alex Metric Remix)”:

    I love "John the Relevator" and the remix sounds pretty strong. I think I may have to buy this CD set.
