From the beginning of their career Depeche Mode have been at the forefront of remix culture; creating their own classic extended mixes back in the early '80s and over the years amassing a collection of remixers of their songs that pretty much charts the history of cutting edge dance music.
Rooted in the UK's late 1970's New Romantic movement, Depeche Mode formed in 1980, and their pioneering, synthesizer-based sound went on to establish them as one of the most successful alt-rock groups ever. These electro-pop superstars loomed as large as cult heroes as they did as commercial heavies, and their wealth of singles and signature tracks ranged from energetic dance grooves to dramatic, moody, and industrial-tinged masterpieces. Depeche's originality of vision weathered personnel shifts and personal turmoil, influencing modern rock and synth-pop on a global level.
Songs of Faith and Devotion, an explosive Billboard No. 1 album when it was released in 1993, continued the band's winning streak and introduced the Top 40 smash "I Feel You." The album also features the classic tracks "Condemnation," "Walking in My Shoes," and "In Your Room."
