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

Tom Breihan | September 12, 2013 - 12:01 pm

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.
