As you all know, we are massive fans of Depeche Mode remixes here at Your EDM. They are one of the pioneering electronic music acts of all time, and their releases always demand attention. Enter HI-LO’s remix of “Speak to Me”, the most recent single off of Depeche Mode’s new album Memento Mori.
No stranger to remixing and mashing up classic electronic and dance acts, the HI-LO remix of “Speak to Me” is sure to delight fans of both artists. The remix keeps the original melody of the song as a base and features Dave Gahan’s vocals front and center. This is a classic HI-LO production that should seamlessly slide into both Oliver Heldens and HI-LO sets.
“It’s an absolute honor to do a remix for the iconic Depeche Mode, especially for such a special song like ‘Speak To Me.’” Oliver Heldens says. “The song felt very honest and real to me, so I tried my best to stay true to the original spirit, but also put my own twist on it. I built around the vocals and the synth pads with a more melodic approach than the usual peak-time techno stuff I am producing but still incorporated some earth-shattering yet warm-sounding bass synths and some heavy drums to take it to a different realm. Thanks, Dave and Martin, for trusting my vision!”
