I can’t seem to find much info on Betty Aus, except for this mix by DJayBetty on MixCloud, but this edit of the chilled-out 1979 Moroder production is worth more than just a listen.
Speaking of not finding much info, what do YOU know about Suzi Lane? Well, I did not know this until reading her short Wikipedia entry:
“Soon after the release of the album, Lane was involved in a car accident in which her face was seriously injured by the broken windshield. Lane spent three years in seclusion at her home in Las Vegas recuperating. In New York, while visiting her sisters who worked as fashion models, Lane was spotted at a photo shoot for Essence magazine. She subsequently was represented by Ford Modeling and had contracts with Lane Bryant and Hanes.“
Could’ve been a lot worse, right?

Rayko is easily one of the greats when it comes to edits or disco in a modern context. He’s even offering this as a FREE download, to boot!
I know almost nothing about this track so far, or whether “Laszlo” is any relation, but if you’re in the mood for something fast and sleek… Electrotechnodisco…
