Oliver and Chromeo revive disco with take on Donna Summer’s ‘Love Is In Control’
If you believe Rolling Stone, disco died on July 12th, 1979, at Chicago’s infamous Disco Demolition Night. Apparently Oliver and Chromeo did not get the message. For their latest endeavor, the two production outfits hooked up to nu-disco-fy a 1982 track by the late Queen of Disco herself, Donna Summer. Though Summer’s “Love Is In Control (Finger On The Trigger)” was labeled R&B when it first hit shelves, the reworked version seeks to put it back in its rightful genre with vamped up vocoder vocals, an emphasized synth, and a much, much flashier music video. More of a blast from the past edit than a thorough remix, the tune honors its predecessor and reminds electronic music where it has come from: Disco is dead, long live disco.
