It's 11/11 and if you wished for something to make you dance, then Los Angeles native Gavin Turek has a little something for you. Her newest release, I Love You Giorgio (Re)mixtape, steals the spirit of Studio 54 and transports it to the future.
Turek takes on some of Giorgio Moroder's greatest instrumentals — "Utopia Me Giorgio," "Lost Angeles," "Chase" and others — adding her undeniable combination of heartfelt lyrics and soaring vocals to create a truly special release. "I Love You Giorgio is my my open love letter to one of the most brilliant producers/musicians of our time," Turek says of Moroder. "It's my way of paying homage to a musical genius and his brilliant original production."

The five-song release whirls through disco-era electronica and big idea lyrics. "'Chase' from the Midnight Express soundtrack takes you on a journey through time and space," she says. "My interpretation resulted in 'Keeper," a song truly about surrendering my idea of time to a power higher than myself." Also on the (re)mixtape is "I Will Come Back," which combines her interpolation of Moroder's "In the Middle of the Knight" with the lyrics of Holy Ghost's "I Will Come Back."
A professionally trained dancer (as well as singer, songwriter, producer and newest Windish Agency signee), Gavin Turek will take her vast set of skills on the road beginning November 29. She'll be knocking off socks at clubs up and down the West Coast during her can't-miss set of gigs.
