On the heels of their most successful U.S. tour to date, pioneering British rock band Depeche Mode have been nominated for a Grammy in the “Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical” category for “You Move (Latroit Remix)” 

A single from the band’s 14th studio album, Spirit, Los Angeles-by-way-of Detroit Producer Latroit (aka Dennis White) was commissioned by KCRW music director Jason Bentley to create a remix that would take the song from the arenas back to the clubs that defined much of Depeche Mode’s career.

A former member of legendary techno act Inner City (featuring Kevin Saunderson and Paris Grey), through his various projects, Dennis White has created BPI and ARIA certified Gold, Platinum, & Double Platinum records, and multiple Billboard #1 Club Chart hits for artists ranging from Madonna to Hans Zimmer.  

I grew up with Depeche Mode’s music,” says Detroit native Latroit. “They were huge influence on me, so being asked to do a remix for them was a big deal to me.  Men who are heroes to me are going to hear my interpretation of their work. No pressure there, right? When I got the parts, i must have listened to the individual tracks for an hour…over and over, geeking out on the synth parts and vocal production.

He continues, “My goal was to create a remix that made Depeche Mode feel like I understand their music, that Prince would have liked had he heard it, and that would work in a Tiga set. So…sparse, funky, playful and kind of dark, leaning heavily on the band’s original parts. I needed this remix to feel like a Depeche Mode song, y’know? A piece of music where the band’s legacy and composition were respected.
