So on to the awards! First up is the Best reMix. Once we looked at both the long and short lists for this category it was pretty instantly obvious who would take home the prize. That’s not to say it didn’t have some stiff competition though.
The list ended up being part predictable (which we don’t mean negatively) and part surprising. There more than a few names who are no stranger to The electronic rumors Awards present, which just means they are being consistently awesome, and some new faces. All guaranteed to make you dance.
Taking on The Cure’s Indie-Goth anthem Just Like Heaven was a bold move for London based Parisian DiscoPoppers The Penelopes, but they pulled it off with flair. Who’d have though that Robert Smith would ever sound so Tropical? Upbeat and euphoric, The Penelopes weave a deft tapestry of summery good-time dancefloor goodness that transforms The Cure’s quirk-Pop masterpiece into a glitzy, mirrorballed, Disco floorfiller. Hand claps incoming!
