Swedish House Mafia's Steve Angello and producer/songwriter Jacques Lu Cont have teamed up to remix "Soothe My Soul" from Depeche Mode's latest effort, Delta Machine. While Depeche Mode's original was a harrowing cut that moved along in a lurching blues vein, the two electronic music whizzes transform its syncopated beat into a commanding four-on-the-floor, building a stadium-sized rager from the track's guttural guitars, sparkling synths and frontman Dave Gahan's repeated proclamation, "There's only one way to soothe my soul."

Angello was thrilled by the experience. "Depeche Mode and Jacques Lu Cont are heroes to me, so when the opportunity came, there was not a single doubt in my mind," he enthuses to Rolling Stone.
