Depeche Mode – Goodbye (Gesaffelstein Remix)
Gesaffelstein has a way of taking dark songs and plunging them deeper into the shadows. On his latest remix release, the French producer strips Depeche Mode‘s latest single of its bluesy instrumentation and replaces it with a plodding industrial beat and minimal atmospheric flourishes. Gesaffelstein leaves his trademark in the thoughtful phased synthesizers that accentuate the impact of key vocal phrases. The overall effect transforms the track from a straightforward lament by singer Dave Gahan into something significantly more desperate and ominous in tone, perfectly complementing the desolate candor of the lyrics.
