“Satellites” by Ellie Warren – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Ellie Warren is a pop-singer from the UK whose 1985 track “Satellites” became a classic among 80s dance circles and disc jockeys. Produced by Jean Claude Alves and Marvin Howell-Kashfi who also gave us tracks from Norma Lewis, Bianca Fernandez and Jackie Rawe, It was the mid-80s dance sound where a disco beat and a rock fused them could create a new stage for every dance floor. “Satellites” is one of my favorite after-hours pieces and helped to bring many dancers back down to earth during many mix programs of the time.
I have taken scenes from the 1997 science-fiction drama “Contact” starring Jodie Foster and Mathew Mc Conaughey. Its theme which is a woman’s search for life in the galaxy brings an experience in a new dimension. The disco track as an anthem works with the images painting a similar experience outside of the dance floor and lonely nights searching for love.
This Disco Video Mix is dedicated to Mr. Marvin Howell - thank you, Marvin for the beautiful music!
The film was directed by Robert Zemeckis
