Donna Summer‘s latest single “Fame” is an explosive hit that comes just in time for the holiday club scene. The song explores the excesses of becoming immortalized by the public and the potential pitfalls that can lead to a person’s downfall if not handled correctly. Donna Summer, who had just come off of a successful year with her “Bad Girls” album, decided to cut the cord and move on from the destructive disco scene of the late seventies.
What we get with “Fame” is an amazing rocker turned inside out for the dance floor. The CD maxi includes the original album version plus three outstanding remixes by Ralphi Rosario, Dave Aude, and Dan Chase, including dub, instrumental, and radio. Sony even included the “Ultimix” version, which is practically unheard of on a release like this.
While the mixes are surprisingly restrained, they all work exceptionally well. Ralphi Rosario, who is known for his signature big room, big beat style, works his magic with a new electro edge that is quite effective. Dave Aude and Dan Chase both take the song in a different direction, employing a more low-key electro workout with a solid house backdrop. This is not Dave’s usual style of production, but after one listen, you’ll get it. Newcomer Dan Chase also delivers an equally effective electro-house mix that should earn him some well-deserved attention in 2009.
Overall, this is one solid remix package and worth the $9.99 price tag. Donna Summer’s “Fame” is HOT STUFF and is sure to move many floors through the holiday season. Don’t take my word for it; check it out for yourself!
