Donna Summer’s ‘Love to Love You Baby’ Remixed – Song Premiere

As guests walk off the elevator leading into the Westwood penthouse of producer-composer Giorgio Moroder, the first thing that greets them is his impressive trophy mantel.

The centerpieces are his Academy Awards – Best Original Score for Midnight Express and Best Song for both “Take My Breath Away” and “Flashdance . . . What a Feeling.” (He keeps another Oscar in his native Italy.) Alongside the Oscars are his three Golden Globes, multiple Grammy awards and various other international honors.

That shelf alone gives an indication of how wide-ranging Moroder’s role in pop culture has been over the last few decades, but it’s a small part of the story. Few behind-the-scenes presences have been as influential as Moroder, whose frequent collaborations with Donna Summer in Seventies and early Eighties dominated disco, making the late singer the queen of that era and paving the way for much of today’s EDM scene. It’s a claim backed by Daft Punk, who have introduced Moroder to a new generation by including his spoken words on “Giorgio by Moroder,” a track on their new album.

Thanks to that homage from the Parisian duo, Moroder finds himself with a whole new audience at age 73. Now a DJ, he will be appearing in Los Angeles in November at Hard Day of the Dead alongside Skrillex and Deadmau5. The jovial and energetic Moroder is thoroughly enjoying his newfound acceptance among young fans, something he continues to embrace as both a DJ and on a new remix (featuring Chris Cox) of Summer’s disco classic “Love to Love You Baby.”

    It’s a keeper and will be a great way to open the new CD. Hope the ones that follow can keep pace. I wish Giorgio would just mix the whole album. Hopefully they did something great with the new song. Not sure how it we t from NathanDigesare to Giorgio.

      I’m betting it’s a different song than the one with Nathan. Giorgio did a song La Dolce Vita with Sparks in 1979. I’m HOPING it might be that track with her on vocals in some form. From what I remember the Nathan track was called Living La Dolce Vita. The similarities are so exciting don’t you think? I COULD be ANYTHING! LOL

    Samples of all the tracks are now available to hear on iTunes, both in the USA and Canada. Not sure for international iTunes, but at least those in North America can now hear all 14 tracks, including La Dolce Vita. It sounds wonderful!
