Giorgio Moroder

Legendary Disco producer, Giorgio Moroder, played recently his first-ever DJ Set in the United States at Output in Brooklyn, NY. We’re honest fans of the Italian disco icon, way before the recent boom, specially after his participation on Daft Punk’s latest album “Random Access Memories.” If you’re not familiarized with the background of Giorgio Moroder, you should definitely make some research. He’s the man responsible for convincing Donna Summer to sing, helping the disco queen produce some of her greatest hits. He also produced for notable artists such as David Bowie and Blondie amongst others. For more info about his bio, check out this link. According to some of our friends that were at the spot, he really pushed the soundsystem into the limit. In his set, he performed “Racer,” |listen here| a song he produced in collaboration with Google Chrome Experiments. Then, he kept on playing some disco classics such as “Love to Love You Baby,” “I Feel Love,” “On The Radio,” and “Hot Stuff,” all by the late Donna Summer. By the end of the set he recreated “Giorgio by Moroder,” just like on the Daft Punk album. We’re truly enjoying to see Moroder’s comeback, specially for everything he represents for the electronic music worldwide and its development. Giorgio Moroder is without a doubt a living legend. Everyone should at least read his bio and try to understand his relevance for the electronic music evolution. Listen to the set below, and just in case you missed his appearance on Daft Punk’s “Random Access Memories” The Collaborators documentary, watch it after the jump. Long live Disco!

  3. Amazing article, set and video! I remember as a kid hookin' up the cable to my radio receiver late one Saturday night and I picked up a NYC station and the first track that truly made an impact on me was I feel Love…does anyone know what track comes in at the 6-8 mark in the Mix?
