I rarely do covers. It's always easier for me to just start from scratch and do what I want. However, this has been on my mind for a few weeks and I had to do it.

I recreated the music in LMMS, then added drum samples from my Yamaha keyboard, to give a lil' retro sound to the beat.

I was creative with the structure of the track. I completely stopped listening to the original song in hopes of not being too similar.

I think I've added a personal touch. Notably, it has a more Dance-oriented beat and vibe, and I took the opportunity to add some vocoder on my main tracks. I think it gives a cool effect.

Alright, back to making original songs. :P


My favourite Depeche Mode Album was Violator and I think you captured the feel of this song rather well.

The mix is a little messy, though. Might want to remove some freqs here n there, but my main gripe with this is that the melody during the chorus, or bridge, or w/e is a synth that is far too similar to the other synths being used and it becomes obscured in the soundscape. (in other words: it doesn't stick out enough).

I suggest using a different synth there. (the part that starts at 0:45). Pretty cool, though.

I'll admit: I'm a noob when it comes to mastering songs, especially EDM tracks. I still have a lot to learn about compression and EQ, though I completely understand what you mean when it comes to the 'lead synth'. It doesn't stand out. I'll improve on that in future songs!

Thank you so much for your review, I really appreciate it! :)
