DJ hails Donna Summers' 1977 hit

Donna Summer's legacy goes far beyond the rightly deserved title 'Queen of Disco'.

Sure, she had numerous hit records that spanned generations in the 70s, 80s and 90s but for me and thousands of DJs and millions of clubbers around the world, Summer's most important contribution was the 1977 hit I Feel Love.

Hearing that record for the first time was like going into the future. And today it still sounds as current and relevant. You could easily expect to hear it in Ibiza today.
