In July of 1977 Donna Summer, Giorgio Moroder, and Pete Bellotte collaborated on a track that would forever alter the landscape of dance music. The fruit of their labor was “I Feel Love,” an undeniable number known as the first disco hit, “entirely produced with a synthesizer.”
With lyrics radiating sentiments of inclusivity and acceptance, the track proved to be a sensation in dance culture and revolutionary from a production standpoint.
The iconic track became a key influencer in music production with its synth work and Moroder could be found at the mast of music production after his debut on Casablanca Records, From Here To Eternity—a record that would be instrumental in the conceptualization of house music not long thereafter. Since that debut, Moroder has garnered four Grammys and three Academy Awards for his work.
In the 21st century, Moroder is experiencing a renaissance that has taken his legendary profile to new heights. Recent highlights include a high profile collaboration on Daft Punk‘s celebrated 2013 album Random Access Memories and the release of yet another album in 2015—Déjà Vuwhich charted #1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Albums Chart.
In recognition of his astounding career, Brooklyn’s Schimanski nightclub will honor the fortieth anniversary of “I Feel Love” with an appearance from Moroder himself on July 27th. Hosted by Mixmag, Casablanca Records, and the Smirnoff Sound Collective, the event will toe the boundary of the past and present in an intimate atmosphere. Those present for last year’s festivities can attest, it’s sure to be an incredible time.
Fans can RSVP for the I Feel Love anniversary event here.

After the acclaim with which Galantis’ debut studio album, Pharmacy, was met upon its 2015 release, the group’s forthcoming LP is destined to be something special.
Last week, the Swedish duo announced their intent to release their sophomore album, The Aviary, on September 15th via Big Beat Records. The record’s revelation arrived with a new single, “True Feeling,” with an official music video in tow.
With just over two years since Pharmacy, Galantis have proven to be a multi-hit engineering duo, garnering over 50 million streams for their single “Hunter,” released in early May, and further permeating the dance music scene via performances at major festivals including Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, and Coachella.
Irrefutably unstoppable, Galantis’ latest announcement entails a supporting tour for their sophomore album, The Aviary Tour, currently slated to touch down in eleven U.S. cities. Support will be provided by the Grammy award-winning CID, and remix aficionados, Jeroen Kerstens and Steven Berghuijs of The Him.
