Our love will last forever

…pipes the voice out of your headphones. Donna Summer was one of disco’s finest, so the news today that she passed away after battling cancer is awfully sad. I take solace in the fact that her voice, like her love, will last forever. Plus we get to spend some time commiserating her loss on the dancefloor.

Within minutes of hearing about her death, I saw that Soundcloud’s most prolific re-editor, Alkalino, had already posted his tribute, a stripped down take on her tune “Our Love.” Our Love, co-written with Italy’s king of the arpeggiator, Giorgio Moroder, is already pretty bare, but it’s always been a big target for disco edit-heads. I remember Philly’s Billy W. once telling me he’d done the virtually the same edit as I was playing a similar, reverb-ed out treatment at his Robotique party. So this track has a special place for me.

Grab the WAV download from Alkalino’s soundcloud while it’s still up. You ought to follow him as well, he posts a lot of hidden edits for his followers that you can’t get otherwise.
