So this is the 2nd Depeche-Mode-Mixtape called „Anticipation“. I strongly believe that music you make or mix can anticipate future events, things that we might not know consciously but that are unconsciously already there. The same is true for this mixtape.
Depeche Mode has a particular connection to Germany, especially to the cities I know best: Berlin and Hamburg. Martin Gore studied some German and lived some time in West-Berlin, the band recorded quite a few of their albums in Berlin & Hamburg.
In 2011 when the tapes where part of „30 years of Depeche Mode“-radioshow, Daniel Miller, the founder of Mute Records, received an award for his „outstanding contribution to UK music“. Also in 2011 there was a flash mob action trying to bring the first dm-song „dreaming of me“ into the charts, which was successful in Germany.
