It has been suggested to me that I was less than complete with my selection of entries in Futurecop!’s ‘Starworshipper’ reMix contest, so let’s put that right!
Sarah from Holographic People rightly pointed out to me that the Young Digerati mix easily deserved recognition. And she’s so right, I don’t know how I left it out, if you go and look at the SoundCloud page for the track you’ll see me raving about it when it was first released so how I forgot it I don’t know. Mind like a sieve! It’s an amazing piece of work that just proves Young Digerati are on their way ‘up’!
Commenter Larry sent me in the direction of the second reMix here, by Lenno, who is a just 16! Seriously! Which kinda’ blows my mind. I hadn’t heard this mix before and I am so glad I have now. This slick Dreamwavey mix will defiantly have me checking out more of Lenno’s stuff.

Young Digerati may well be the next big thing in ElectroPop, this newcomer Californian four piece make some of the sweetest Dreamwave tinged Indie-ElectroPop you’ll hear all year.
They’ve just released their début EP, ‘The Amanda EP’, for free on SoundCloud and it’s lead track, ‘The Dauphin’, is everything you’d want from a West Coast ElectroPop track. A summery, dreamy vibe with synths that shimmer over a Disco beat topped with introspective, emotive vocals. ‘The Dauphin’ is a track that sweeps right into your heart.
So, they have roped in some top quality reMix talent for the EP too. Muffin makes an appearance alongside this reMix from the almighty Ride The Universe. digitalfoxgloxe and the Fiero crew get their Filter-Disco on with a reMix that’s just gonna’ melt the dancefloor. With hints of ‘Discovery’ era Daft Punk (quite fitting this week) in the driving chords and a wicked Disco guitar lick. The groove sets the scene perfectly for snatches of the original’s vocals and a solo line that takes you that bit higher.
Just when you though the world couldn’t get any smoother Ride The Universe come back with another smooth supernova!
