Giorgio Moroder sat down for an interview recently, and revealed how he turns out wave after wave of sexy synth beatz.
“But wait!”, you say. “The author of this post intentionally misled us and that’s not Giorgio!”, you say.
Yeah, I know it’s not really Giorgio Moroder, but I think it’s a clever impression of the man, and it’s great to see people actually pay attention to him after disco bit the fucking dust 30+ years ago. Yeah, he was an amazing film score composer, as well, but it’s his disco output that’s finally getting some retro-cool recognition via Daft Punk and their latest album.
If you watched the Creator Series with actual Giorgio Moroder prior to the release of Random Access Memories, you’ll probably get where the dudes in the above video got their ideas. Moroder is a legitimate disco legend, but he’s kinda been relegated to obscurity since disco’s hard and fast death. His being cast back into the limelight really underscores the fact that he’s 73-years old. Don’t get me wrong, I love the guy, but he’s kind of just like…I don’t know…a grandfatherly Moog-wizard at this point. And when a grandfatherly Moog-wizard DJs his very first set in the year 2013, it crosses over from charming resurgence of popularity, to that feeling you get when you see a cool-dad blasting a yesteryear trap banger from his recently-leased Camaro.
I feel all the love in the world for Mr. Moroder, but this hilarious parody mirrors my sentiments perfectly
