INTERVIÚ CON YOUNG DIGERATI

Young Digerati

Esta semana, hemos charlado con nuestros nuevos amigos Young Digerati, cuatro tíos (Frank / Jeff / John / Will) de San Franciso muy molones y con una obsesión enfermiza por los ochenta.

Aparte de contestar nuestras preguntas, tenemos el honor y el placer de ser la primera página que ofrece en exclusiva su primer mix, titulado “Joy Machine Mixtape” (el título es un secreto).

Asi que ya sabéis pequeños, gozad!

1. Is it true you are part of The Breakfast Club? You claim to have met in the same way..

What’s the breakfast club?

2. How do you combine the love for new technology (digerati) with retro music? (digerati es una persona que maneja muy bien la tecnología)
We all hold advanced degrees in the computer sciences and actually accidently hacked into the U.S. Defense Dept. War Games system because we thought it was a video game.

3. Should Molly Ringwald be allowed to age? (Molly Ringwald era una teenager famosa en los 80)
We didn’t know she had. Isn’t she in that band Paramore?

4. Do you consider yourselves real digeratis?
As stated above our degrees in computerism qualify us as such. We use IBM.

5. Since you mention OC in “The Dauphin“, we’re just gonna assume you watch it and ask you a question that divides us here at Le Vibe: Marissa or Summer?
Summer. One time Will stood outside her bedroom window and played Peter Gabriel on a boombox. She called the cops.

6. What future plans do you have? Any upcoming EPs or even an album?
Our next smash single “Aquiel” is coming out the beginning of May (we had to push it back because of the music video) with another release in June followed by a European tour hopefully sometime in the summer. Remix duties by StardonE, Flashworx, Mitch Murder and Johnatron.

7. How did you start with Young Digerati?
We used to hang out in Santa Carla a lot … we all shared a passion for jumping off bridges, flying, dirt biking, and hanging out at the boardwalk. When we turned Jeff he suggested we play music instead of drinking blood all the time.

8. You did a remix for Futurecop, should we expect more YD remixes in the future?
All signs point to yes.

9. What are your main influences?
Sloan Peterson, Samantha Baker, Melinda Barret, and Cherry Valance.

10. Any bizarre or funny tour anecdotes?
We’ve never toured as Young Digerati BUT this one time John took his now wife to see some unicorns and when she touched one all Hell broke loose. Literally.
