[Audio] Holy Ghost! reMix Donna Summer’s ‘Working The Midnight Shift’

 

Donna Summer

As the release of the eagerly awaited Donna Summer reMix collection, Love To Love You Donna, draws ever nearer, new track are beginning to break ground. Here we are very excited to grab a listen to one of our favourite bands, New York DiscoPop duo Holy Ghost! (who are gearing up for the release of their phenomenal second album, Dynamics) tackling Donna’s 1977 album track, Working The Midnight Shift.

The original pairs Donna’s heartfelt vocals with the classic Moroder Sci-Fi Italo, Holy Ghost! build on this, but add a little of their own Disco swing. Upping the energy levels slightly, this reMix bring big stabbing leads to the table whilst nodding to the originals arpeggiated bassline. Equal parts New York Disco, European Italo with a hint of DFA, Holy Ghost! and Donna Summer seem like the prefect combination to bring an original NYC Disco sound to 2013. Seriously, between this and the Chrome & Oliver reMix, we are very excited for this album to drop.

[Video] Chromeo & Oliver’s reMix of Donna Summer’s ‘Love Is In Control (Finger On The Trigger)’

A while back we served up the amazing team-up of Chromeo & Oliver reMixing Donna Summer’s Love Is In Control (Finger On The Trigger), taken from the forthcoming reMix tribute album, Love To Love You Donna. Now check out the official video for this astoundingly good slab of synth Funk.

The video riffs off the original, but adds a load of stock footage and colourful effects. A reMix of the original video for a reMix of the track, you might say.

[Audio] Donna Summer reMixed by Chromeo & Oliver and Giorgio Moroder

 

donna-summer

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.

Arnaud Rebotini covers ‘I Feel Love’

arnaud-rebotini

The Black Strobe man Arnaud Rebotini has just dropped this impressive cover of Donna Summer’s (well, Giorgio Moroder’s really) ‘I Feel Love’.

It’s an epic eight minutes of analog synth awesomeness. Everything from the drums to the instantly recognisable arpeggio is pitch perfect. This is no mere carbon copy, Rebotini makes it very much his own handling the vocals with use of a vocoder, but the vocals take a back seat throughout much of the track, the focus being more on a Rebotini knob twiddling Disco workout.
