Singer/songwriter/pop culture icon and 2013 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee DONNA SUMMER rocketed to international superstardom in the mid-1970s, when her groundbreaking merger of R&B, soul, pop, funk, rock, disco and avant-garde electronica catapulted underground dance music out of the clubs of Europe to the pinnacle of sales and radio charts around the world. On October 22, Verve Records will release LOVE TO LOVE YOU DONNA, a remix record celebrating her life and voice.
Highlights from LOVE TO LOVE YOU DONNA include the legendary producer Giorgio Moroder’s entirely re-imagined version of “Love to Love You Baby,” originally recorded in November of 1975; Afrojack’s take on “I Feel Love,” and indie electro artists Hot Chip’s interpretation of “Sunset People.” Also included are remixes of “Hot Stuff” by Frankie Knuckles and Eric Kuppe, Laidback Luke’s remix of “MacArthur Park” and more.

About DONNA SUMMER:
Maintaining an unbroken string of hits throughout the 70s and 80s, most of which she wrote, Donna Summer (1948-2012) holds the record for most consecutive double albums to hit #1 on the Billboard charts (three) and is the first woman to have four #1 singles in a twelve-month period, three as a solo artist and one as a duo with Barbra Streisand. A five-time Grammy Award-winner, she was the first artist to win the Grammy for Best Rock Vocal Performance, Female (1979, “Hot Stuff”), as well as the first-ever recipient of the Grammy for Best Dance Recording (1997, “Carry On”). She held six American Music Awards, three consecutive #1 platinum double albums (she’s the only artist, male or female, ever to accomplish this), 11 gold albums, four #1 singles, 2 platinum singles, and 12 gold singles. Donna was also the first female artist to have a #1 single and #1 album on the Billboard charts simultaneously (“MacArthur Park” and Live & More, 1978), a feat she also repeated six months later (“Hot Stuff” and Bad Girls, 1979). She has charted 21 #1 hits on the Billboard Disco/Dance charts over a period of 25 years, a milestone solidifying her as THE Queen of Dance. In 2004, she became one of the first inductees, as both an Artist Inductee and a Record Inductee (for 1977′s “I Feel Love”) into the Dance Music Hall of Fame in New York City. In 2013, Donna Summer was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. It is estimated that Ms. Summer has sold more than 130 million records worldwide.

Temporary Hero - BalletTemporary Hero - the self-proclaimed love child of Thom Yorke + Madonna after a weekend of Depeche Mode – joins the Sidetrak Records ranks with his haunting and wide-ranging electronic single‘Ballet’.  A stunningly intoxicating and emotional remix by André Lodemann looks to be an Ibiza classic in the making with support already received from Robert Owens, Mousse T, Giom and Jon Cutler.  People Get Real add a growling bass and choppy piano to their tech-tinged remix, while Blackhill take things in a groovy, bumping and funky house direction.

Temporary Hero has collaborated with the likes of Mac Quayle (remixer of New Order, Depeche Mode and Donna Summer), Jerome Isma-Ae, Andre Lodemann, The Slips, Chus + Ceballos, James Teej, Andrew Galea, Pete Gooding and Jeremy Sylvester.  His previous releases on the Object Permanence imprint include ‘Youth’, ‘Hate Sux’, ‘Savin’ up 2 Be a Rock + Roll Star’ and ‘Blasphemy’.  Nothing is deliberate. But it is all temporary.
