Depeche Mode – The Dark Progression (A New Documentary)

With a career span­ning more than 30 years, mas­ters of the synth and sequen­cer, Depeche Mode are con­sidered one of the ori­gin­al innov­at­ors of the 80s elec­tron­ic sound, tak­ing the tech­no­logy and music to new and excit­ing heights. A career ret­ro­spect­ive of one of the most suc­cess­ful elec­tron­ic bands in music his­tory, with over 100 mil­lion albums sold world­wide, The Dark Progression is an in-depth look behind four of the band's most influ­en­tial record­ings: Black Celebration, Music For The Masses, Violator and Songs of Faith and Devotion.

Formed in Basildon, Essex in 1980, Depeche Mode recog­nized the true poten­tial of cut­ting-edge devel­op­ments in syn­thes­ized sound, blend­ing deep dark vocals with bold dynam­ic melod­ies, pion­eer­ing a sound and defin­ing an era of music. From the early days of New Romanticism to the world­wide smash Violator – fea­tur­ing hit singles ‘Personal Jesus’ and ‘Enjoy The Silence’ their pop­ular­ity and repu­ta­tion as elec­tron­ic innov­at­ors is next to none.

Featuring rare archiv­al per­form­ance foot­age, clips and inter­views with band mem­bers, key asso­ci­ates and con­tem­por­ar­ies such as Gary Numan, Thomas Dolby, OMD, pro­du­cers Gareth Jones & Phil Legg and bio­graph­er Jonathan Miller, The Dark Progression is an illu­min­at­ing glimpse into one of the most elec­tri­fy­ing out­fits in music today.
