With Donna Summer passing away, we've lost an iconic singer who inspired many house and techno producers with her tracks "Love to Love You Baby" and "I Feel Love."
Producer Giorgio Mororder didn't think "Love To Love You Baby" would work because it was too kind of outrageous, but to his surprise it was a big success. "We were just happy that somebody was releasing it, but we never thought it would become a hit."
Moroder remembers Donna Summer gently. "First of all, she was a great singer and a great human being. Very funny, always ready for a joke. I must say, especially with ´Love To Love You, Baby´, we did something which after more than 30 years you still hear in almost every dance song - some parts, the bass line and some of the instruments used particularly. I think the legacy, we established a sound or a genre which still lives on."
Thanks LaDonna! We'll miss you.
