One of the undoubted highlights of the Null + Void long player ‘Cryosleep’ is the collaboration with Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan.
Null + Void is the project of Kurt Uenala, the Swiss born producer and multi-instrumentalist who has a long history of working with synth legends, and ‘Where I Wait’ further enhances that reputation.
Turning over remix duties to The Hacker - the French producer delivers a typically dark and driven take on the track. A mid paced groove unfolds with tightly programmed arpeggiated synths seemingly barely under control. Gahan’s iconic vocals float over the top, creating a powerful, poignant track.
Also included is a The Hacker’s Dub Remix, stripping back the vocals into a few dubbed out snippets and echos, and focussing in on the tough groove, courtesy of the tight drums and thick, propulsive bass.
