When we got word that Benga was one of the producers that reworked Donna Summer material for the forthcoming Love To Love You Donna remix album, we were instantly intrigued. The tracklist is an interesting mix, with heavyweights in the EDM scene like Afrojack and Laidback Luke being featured next to Hot Chip and Gigamesh.
Wild assortment, but it’s great to see that UK bass music stalwarts like Benga getting their just due, especially when he’s featured on a rework that finds him dipping deeper into the house bag than he’s normally known for.
While we don’t get full-on Donna Summer soaring vocals, we definitely get a more ethereal wail throughout the soulful track, which plays very well and will go off in the club. All-in-all, this record goes.
