Following the release of ‘The Third Chimpanzee‘ earlier this year, Martin Gore – songwriter and founding member of Depeche Mode – has announced he will release ‘The Third Chimpanzee Remixed‘, a collection of remixes and reworkings of tracks from his acclaimed release. ‘The Third Chimpanzee Remixed’ will be released August 20 on Mute via a limited edition double colored vinyl, CD, and digital platforms.
The second track from the release is a stunning remix of “Vervet” by techno DJ and fellow Mute artist, Chris Liebing. “Martin’s The Third Chimpanzee is from out of this world from a sound and production standpoint, that’s even before you mention the music itself,” Liebing says. “Getting asked by Martin, one of the most talented musicians and poets alive, to officially remix one of those tracks… I am still pinching myself.” Listen to Liebing’s remix below.

The first taste of ‘The Third Chimpanzee Remixed’ came in February from Brazil’s ANNA, who opens the release with a mesmerizing mix of Gore’s pulsating track “Howler” which was included in recent BBC 6Music and BBC Radio 1 mixes. The special edition also sees remixes from celebrated artists including JakoJako, Jlin, Kangding, Rrose, Wehbba, The Exaltics, MoReVoX and Barker.
Gore says of the release, “I am very excited to have such a talented list of remixers for this project. The mixes are all fantastic.”
