Claudio Blanco

Vocals (Dave Gahan / Martin Gore)

After the amazing job he did for the World Violation Tour Remastered, Claudio recorded every single vocal for this project.

His performances have the power to transport listeners to a place where emotions intertwine, where nostalgia meets the present, and where the extraordinary becomes familiar. Claudio's vocals have the ability to elevate any audio project to new heights, leaving a lasting impression on all who have the pleasure of experiencing his artistry.

Without his contribution, this project wouldn't be the same or possible at all.

Elias Velazquez

Synths | Programming | Backing tracks | Crowd effects | Graphic design

Once again, working on a project as big as this one is such a phenomenal experience. With its highs and lows, I enjoyed developing every aspect of it. From synths to backing tracks, programming to crowd effects, and visuals to graphic design, this truly was a thrilling adventure.

With each task, I always try to bring a sprinkle of familiarity and a dash of entertainment to ensure that every project I work on leaves a lasting impression on all who experience it.

Thank you for your incredible support and for giving this project a chance.

A Question Of Time

Fly On The Windscreen


¿What's the Black Celebration tour project?

The "Black Celebration Tour - A fans tribute" is a fan project that recreates the iconic Black Celebration gig performed by Depeche Mode at Wembley Arena, London, on April 16th, 1986. The goal is that you feel you're listening to an official and high quality live recording of that night.

So, it's not Depeche Mode then.

No, you're not listening to any audience or soundboard recording. Everything was recreated from scratch. Original samples were used to recreate most of the synth lines, melodies and backing tracks.

¿Were the vocals extracted/isolated from a sounboard?

Believe it or not, the vocals you hear on every recording related to this project were recorded by the same singer that lend his artistic skills to the World Violation Tour - A fans tribute: Claudio Blanco. No, it's not Dave.

¿Is there a video version of this?

The premiere of this project was broadcasted on April 23th and a replay had place on May 14th, 2023, both on my YouTube channel. Unfortunately, both performances got blocked due to copyright issues.

If you're interested in a video version of the whole concert, please let me know through the homepage contact form.
