Story

I’m pretty sure this tune won’t be for everyone, but upon hearing about the passing of Andy Fletcher I felt a sudden urge to do a Black Celebration inspired remix. I’m not sure how I ended up listening to 3 Chn Gametune by Future Freak, but I felt it would probably fit formula nicely.

It was a pretty quick job, this one. I didn’t feel like overdoing it. This is probably the remix I have paid the least attention to percussion on, but on the other hand there are a lot of percussive elements in the instrumentation. So I left the beat pretty basic. Also, all the reverbs were making my computer stutter when playing back the arrangement, so I couldn’t comfortably add any more elements.

I took some liberties with the arrangement, leaving some parts out.

Try to spot all the Depeche Mode references.😉

The reference to early Depeche Mode tracks clearly is audible. At least until 1:50 when the beat kicks in. At this point the flavour of DM gets a little bit burried under that beat. Otherwise a creative approach and a great hommage to "Fletch".
A great fitting tribute to Fletch and a wonderful remix mash to boot.
Appreciate the 80s Depeche Mode vibes...
I really like this, backs up my theory about not obsessing over a mix, but just get your ideas out there and you still get great results. Cool metallic percussion and driving rhythms that circle back at the end.
