80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

Depeche Mode – Depeche (Megamix) Behind The Mix! (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on July 2nd, 2012


Released in 1989 this is one of the earlier ON-USound releases. There are two Depeche Mode Megamixes featured here. The mixes are mainly of Depeche Mode’s early work and tracks from “Music For The Masses”.

Depeche Mode are an English electronic music band formed in 1980 in Basildon, Essex. The group’s original line-up consisted of Dave Gahan (lead vocals, occasional songwriter since 2005), Martin Gore (keyboards, guitar, vocals, chief songwriter after 1981), Andy Fletcher (keyboards) and Vince Clarke (keyboards, chief songwriter 1980–81). Vince Clarke left the band after the release of their 1981 debut album, Speak & Spell, and was replaced by Alan Wilder (keyboards, drums, occasional songwriter) with Gore taking over songwriting. Wilder left the band in 1995; Gahan, Gore, and Fletcher have since continued as a trio.

Depeche Mode have had 48 songs in the UK Singles Chart and twelve top 10 albums in the UK charts, two of which debuted at #1. According to EMI, Depeche Mode have sold over 100 million albums and singles worldwide, making them the most successful electronic band in music history. Q magazine calls Depeche Mode “The most popular electronic band the world has ever known” and included the band in the list of the “50 Bands That Changed The World!”.

In 2010 Depeche Mode were ranked No. 98 on VH1’s list of the 100 greatest artists of all time.

*Please Note: This is not an officially released single therefore the vinyl mastering may not be perfect. However I have made every attempt to restore this rare 12″.

    This record is extremely rare!! This record was not produced by USOUND. I used their bootleg logo to advertise my record. I remixed this record only with my 2 turntables and a real to real, splicing the tape when needed. Old school style!

    The red Label is extremely rare, only 1000 produced. A black label version with the mix-out crew was over produced witch wasn’t me.
