Giovanni Giorgio Moroder, or Hansjörg Moroder as his parents called him when he was born in the Italian part of Tyrol 73 years ago, made his name as a record producer in the 1970's and '80's. He is famous for producing the most important of Donna Summer's records, making her a superstar in the process. "Love To Love You Baby", "I Feel Love", "Bad Girls" and scores of other hits are Moroder's responsibility. In the 80's he made it big writing and producing hit songs for movie soundtracks, such as David Bowie's "Cat People (Putting Out Fire)", Blondie's "Call Me", Limahl's "Neverending Story", Irene Cara's "Flashdance" and many more. And now, with the release of the groundbreaking new Daft Punk album Random Access Memories, he's entered the limelight again, talking about his background on the fascinating track "Giorgio By Moroder". Last week he played his first ever DJ set, in New York City. By clicking on the link below you can listen to the entire 75 minute set, that comprises several of his classics, a newer song called "Racer", and much more. He was aided by a younger DJ called Chris Cox, and the whole thing is wonderful listening.
