i have heard the sound of the future

In 1977, producer Giorgio Moroder, using a Moog synthesizer, created one of the first purely electronic backing tracks, and it throbbed like a… heart.  Then Donna Summer did this to it, and, well, yack yourself a line of coke and you’ve got Disco, baby.

“One day in Berlin, [Brian] Eno comes running in and says, ‘I have heard the sound of the future.’  He puts on “I Feel Love,” by Donna Summer, and says, ‘This is it, look no further.  This single is going to change the sound of club music for the next fifteen years.’  Which was more or less right.”

-David Bowie (1977)

“It’s so good, it’s so good, it’s so
good…”

david bowie i love you (since i was six)

Say what you will about Anton, and there’s plenty to say, but he was, in his way, a genius.  He never compromised.  Not for anyone or anything.  Do yourself a favor and watch Dig!  It’s wonderful.  I’ll wait here, with this.
