Difficult to improve on a classic, so why bother?
This doesn’t stop others out there trying their hands at remixing Depeche Mode songs, of course.
Halo is no exception, yet perhaps only the Goldfrapp version really challenges the original from the album – so much so that a Dave-led outing was performed during encores on the Delta Machine tour.
Still, here is the Apathy in Motion Remix of Halo.
It’s a simple reworking, mainly on the percussion side of things. Neat and tidy, nothing spectacular.
