Throwback: Donna Summer – I Feel Love

This song still sounds so current. Instantly recognisable, Summer’s sensual, powerful vocals seem to come from another planet as they drop in and add to the ultimate groove and smoothness of the track. The bassline helps to make it a rhythmic classic, fixing in the head and refusing to move, as Summer croons over the top, where it doesn’t matter if the listener knows the lyrics or not – because this song is so easy to dance to – it almost sounds like a house beat.

‘Love To Love You Donna’, an album featuring remixes of Summer’s greatest songs, from the likes of Jacques Greene, Duke Dumont and Frankie Knuckles is scheduled for release 22 October. Afrojack has remixed ‘I Feel Love’, vamping up the beat and making the vocals a hypnotic power trip.
