Depeche Mode – “My Little Universe (Boys Noize Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)
Whether we’re talking football or world war, Germany and England traditionally don’t get along all that well, but German bass producer Boys Noize feels like a perfect choice to remix Depeche Mode’s dreary synthpop. That’s exactly what Boys Noize has done, transforming “My Little Universe” from Depeche’s 2013 LP Delta Machine into a booming, skittering, dark-tinged electronic dance cut as part of a new Beatport-only EP on his own Boysnoize Records. It’s a frantic and exhilarating take on an already foreboding song, and you should listen to it.
Delta Machine Remixes is out 6/23 via Boysnoize. Djedjotronic’s remix of Delta Machine track “Alone” rounds out the project.
