Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore has announced a new ten-track release ‘The Third Chimpanzee Remixed’ which comes out via Mute on August 20. Pre-order it here.
The record sees a host of impeccable techno and experimental producers rework tracks from Gore’s ‘The Third Chimpanzee’ EP, which came out earlier this year.
Artists locked in are ANNA, Barker, Wehbba, JakoJako, Kangding Ray, The Exaltics, Rrose, Jlin, Chris Liebing and MoReVoX.
“I am very excited to have such a talented list of remixers for this project. The mixes are all fantastic,” said Martin Gore.
Chris Liebing said: “Martin’s ‘The Third Chimpanzee’ is from out of this world from a sound and production standpoint, that’s even before you mention the music itself. Getting asked by Martin, one of the most talented musicians and poets alive, to officially remix one of those tracks… I am still pinching myself.”
