I Love this song, it was the first Depeche Mode song i've ever listened. I always enjoyed the percussion part.. Those drums sounds really good..

Do any of you guys know how they were made? the snare sound really wet and smacked.. never heard anything similar...

Didn't they do most of that on an Emulator ?

I once saw a video clip of them sampling metal pipes and construction zone noises with a field recorder during that era. Pretty sure a lot of that stuff ended up being used as percussion.

I've heard that some of their studio stuff was PPG.

The drums were done on a Synclavier, and reamped through a huge PA into the large recording room at Hansa studio. There's a making-of documentary with the deluxe editions from a few years back that has some studio footage and a bit of technical info.

Those drums are straight up Emulator II sample library

interesting. i was about to post that more than half oft the sound comes from the reverb and eq/amp combination.

I saw the same video. At a minimum, there is sampled recording of a hubcap spinning in the intro, and I am pretty sure there's a lot of other metal clangs sampled in there.
