I've always been a fan of The Cure, so for this single I wanted a 'Boris Williams' kind of drum feel, drenched in reverb and almost sounding like a drum machine.
My remix of one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite bands, Depeche Mode. For this single, I wanted to recreate the original synthesized vox in the intro and ending, but with actual human voice this time around, so I employed my friend Beth Dadko to sing the backing vocal part.
It starts with the Vox-amp driven guitar chord progression, and from there I was able to build the rest of the track. It has kind of an anthemic European feel of almost watching a soccer game in the stands with a Guinness in hand.
