This video would be full blown amazing WITHOUT Snoop from The Wire. Goddamn.
Giorgio Moroder is making music in 2014, and unlike many of his contemporaries, he’s refusing to merely wallow in nostalgia and ride the Daft Punk disco gravy train. No, he’s working on anew album said to be influenced by contemporary EDM, and he’s making trap remixes of his old shit. Like this, from the SCarface soundtrack.
The trap starts at 1:45. Doesn’t last for long, and modernites might demand more kick and complain about the lack of compression, but fuck them, Giorgio Moroder is cognisant in 2014 and that is fucking awesome.
Anyone seen video of this? Was he actually pushing any buttons? What was he using? CDJs? Traktor? Or did his “musical director”, mentioned at the start do all the lifting? Enquiring minds yadda yadda…
Despite being a disco legend, Giorgio Moroder had never got behind a pair of decks before. Until last night, that is, when the recent Daft Punk collaborator performed his first ever DJ set live in New York.
Part of the billing for Red Bull Music Academy’s night at Brooklyn club Output, Moroder spun some of his career-long back-catalogue, Donna Summer was in abundance, as well as Random Access Memories track ‘Giorgio by Moroder’.
This was made in 1982.
Motherfucker, if you out this out NOW people would call it futuristic.
Another smash from the incredible Kells. THANK YOU.
