On reflection, WithGuitars still like the original cut more, but it’s a interesting mix none the less

Listen to the intense, pulsing remix of the new electronic Martin Gore track ‘Pinking’, taken from his critically acclaimed solo project MG and remixed by Swedish producer, DJ and musician, Christoffer Berg.
‘Pinking’ is one of the many highlights on Gore’s evocative 16-track electronic instrumental album, MG, which is out now on Mute. The album is creates an absorbing and emotional sonic landscape, and was described by VICE as “a textural, complicated album”. Explaining the appeal of a purely instrumental record, Martin says, “I am aware of the power of pure music and the emotions that can be created by musical atmospheres and that is what I wanted to capture with this project.”
Christoffer Berg is well known for his programming work, perhaps most notably on Depeche Mode’s 2013 album ‘Delta Machine’, where he worked closely with Martin, exploring his vast selection of vintage synthesizers and gear. Christoffer also remixed the VCMG track ‘Aftermaths’.
