Listen To: Donna Summer – “Sunset People (Hot Chip Dub Edit)” (Stereogum Premiere)

The late-’70s disco singles that Donna Summer made with Giorgio Moroder were all titanic pop hits, and they also helped make the world safe for chilly, stretching-into-infinity electronic production. (And, I suppose I should point out, they were amazing songs.) On the new compilation Love To Love You Donna, a host of dance-music luminaries pay the favor back at least a little bit, remixing those classic Summer tracks. Chromeo & Oliver, Holy Ghost!, and Moroder himself are among the contributors. And below, we’ve got a stream of the eight-minute “dub edit” reworking that Hot Chip gave Summer’s incandescent 1979 single “Sunset People,” stretching the song out into a deeper, more relaxed groove.

Listen Here: Donna Summer – “Sunset People (Hot Chip Dub Edit)”

    I love it! I’m glad it’s an edit because it implies there’s a longer version. I expect the beat to come back in at the end and I hope it does via an extended version.

    Liking this one a lot! Donna’s voice front and centre with some nice musical additions. After the (I’m sorry) awful OTR this has got me excited again. XpS

    Oh YES YES YES, hearing this was just as exciting as when I rode the bus home with my ‘Bad Girls’ double album under my arm . . running ( literally) up into my bedroom to play the entire set. ‘Sunset People’ blew me away, always did and always has done. This new remix does the song a great justice, and many a gay boy will remember the days of this being spun in the clubs.

    Amazing!!! The best remix yet from Donna’s highly anticipated LTLYD set. Has a very trippy, haunted feel to it. So glad the majority of these remixes aren’t messing with Donna’s original vocals.

    Like this one too, although it is also a little on the dark side as opposed to the original light and energetic. Good for the kids.
