Music for the Masses

For the people who don’t yet know this ( should be impossible, but you never know )… I’m a HUGE fan of Depeche Mode !! I own every almost all their full cd’s, all their concert dvd’s and also some collectors items. So yes a bit of a fan 😉

But last year my wife bought me something special as a gift : Depeche Mode – Stripped. The biography of the band in paperback form !

The beginning of the Depeche Mode history started in the early 80ies and the book dedicates much info about the influences the band members got during their first years into stardom. And guess what, when I read about it, I got back into the new wave, synth pop mood again !!

Ooh man, those where the high days for music lovers ! Songs like Underpass by John Foxx, Are friends’ electric? by Gary Numan ( Tubeway Army ), Back to nature by Fad Gadget, Being boiled by The Human League or Our darkness by Anne Clark. I could go on forever ( some people are making lists about it, but we have to be patient ), just SO good was that time for brilliant music.

So just sit back and enjoy 🙂





 

Update: ( one that just has to be in this small list )

Hot list – current iPod tracks

Well my friend Nicodemus has, as always, an impressive music catalogue at his disposal – again today he gave us a small glimpse of his collection ! Maybe a small suggestion : just add a small audio sample so we have an idea what it sounds like 🙂

His overviews made me rethink my current selection a bit ! I love my iPod shuffle and use it everyday getting to & from work ( I ride the bus ). But lately I get a bit bored with the cd collection I uploaded into my iTunes… I need more variation.

So to get my interests back up, I looked at some key DJ’s I like and found their air play lists !! So it seems that most of the great mixers use a radio show as a playground to experiment with the current available tracks.

These shows are just great ! Not much talking, all the music I need for my bus ride and mixed perfectly. So here is a small overview of 3 DJ’s I’m following right now and their radio shows :

Oh one small remark, it’s all Trance music if you where wondering ;)…
