Love To Love You Donna is the title of a forthcoming reMix album that pays tribute to Disco diva legend Donna Summer. Release in October, the album holds twelve tracks that place Summers instantly recognisable vocals in the hands of the likes of Hot Chip, Frankie Knuckles and Eric Kupper, along side these two gems from a team-up between Chromeo & Oliver and Summer’s long-time production partner, and legend in his own right, Giorgio Moroder.
Chromeo & Oliver seems like a Synth Funk match made in heaven and their reMix of Love Is In Control (Finger On The Trigger) really delivers the goods. Serving up a heady rush of murderous synth bass and big warping chords that is so perfectly paired with Summer’s big 80s vocals that you’d swear it was always supposed to sound like this. Add in a little of Chromeo’s talk-box warbling and you have a massive DiscoPop hit for the summer. this track draws on such a pool of talent coming together that is was destined to be nothing short of amazing. In what seems like a fitting choice, Giorgio Moroder has turned in a reMix of a track he originally co-wrote, the classic Love To Love You Baby. The Disco and Italo god recent played the track out during a DJ set at the Way Out West in Gothenburg, Sweden (after completing it on the plane over) so we can get a taste of how the track will sound. It sounds like we’re in for a full-on sounding Moroder tune with a seriously Italo groove. the album is shaping up to be a definite purchase.
