Precious

The first cover of my career, Precious is arguably the best song written by Martin Gore in the 21st century. It is also the first time I have asked someone to give a vocal performance, though in the past remixer Dima (Selfish Boy) has added some lyrics to his remixes.

Originally I recorded a demo of this track, including a little reinterpretation on 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 Hüllermeier,
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 Elfström Lilja (Moist),
Jesper Seeberg,
Andy Hagerty,
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 Ekström (Damokles),
JT (Purple Fog Side), and
Andy Haldane.


There are also many other versions in a variety of genres completed or planned for 2017, including:

Andy Haldane,
Johnnie Cleveland (West One, Def Octave),
Andrei B (DJ RAY-G),
Joseph Jones (Joey Cutless) and
Danny Nightingale.
