Precious

The first cover of my career involving vocals, Precious is arguably the best song written by Martin Gore in the 21st century.

Originally I recorded a demo of this track, using a completely different set of chords for the instrumental MID section, sent it to Andy Haldane to bring it to life, asked Michael George to perform Dave Gahan's vocals and what you hear is below!

After this, there have been several synth-pop remixes of this project from remixers by the calibre of:


Rico Hullermeier,
Andreas Motke (Dominatrix),
Chris Reynolds (Red Flag),
Gary Agle (My Faust),
Torge Waack (Rob Dust),
Jose Maria Bara (DX5),
Elad Sofer (Eladsof),
Dmitry Pavlovsky (Dima)
Chris Bentley (cbentley),
David Elfstrom Lilja (Moist),
Jesper Seeberg,
Andy Hagerty,
Massimo Nalli (Maxiblues),
Gijs van Ouwerkerk (Heliophile),
Rob Green (The Department),
Jeff Harper (Mindcleaner, of whom you may recall the 2000-04 Intervox album The Darkest Hour),
Anders Ekstrom (Damokles),
JayTee (Purple Fog Side),
Lloyd Price (The Frixion) and
Andy Haldane.


There are also many other versions in a variety of genres completed or planned for 2019.

In addition to these wonderful synth-pop productions, there are many extended versions of this very cover interpretation. They won't be excluslively in the synth-pop genre, but will enter the same spirit of production: the same MID difference, either letting the chords play for themselves or adding their own melodic improvised performing as they may be inclined to do. This means a classic rock fan, or a hip-hop fan, a trancehead or even a classical Beethoven music fan stands just as much as chance of getting something from this project as a Depeche synth purist fan dating back to 1981 may.

Again, expect to hear lots of one word: CONTENT.

Since reinterpreting sessions during the years 2007-14,
involving Depeche Mode classic songs,
I have since shelved artistic ideas for this project and handed them to a sister guise I also use.
