1979 It's Dancing Time

Picture: Roller Boogie
Paying tribute to the last year of disco, before the ‘disco sucks’ movement took over by burning disco records in public. In 1979 I was too young to go to a discotheque, but I imagine the music there would have sounded something like this, including the bad mixing... ;-) The track from Moonshoes is actually brand new, but it has the 1979 feel. The accompanying video contains footage of Skatetown USA (picture below), a movie (starring Patrick Swayze) that came out in 1979. By the way, the father of one of the Daft Punk guys wrote Ottawan’s ‘D.I.S.C.O.’

‘Love to love you Donna’ is the new Donna Summer remix album that is out on Verve now. DJ's and artists like Chromeo, Hot Chip and Holy Ghost! have teamed up to remix the late singer’s classic hits. It includes reworked versions of ‘Hot stuff’,‘I feel love’, ‘MacArthur Park’,'On the radio' and more. The biggest surprise is an unreleased track called ‘La dolce vita’, a collaboration between the Queen of Disco and synthesizer pioneer Giorgio Moroder, her longtime producer.
