Giorgio Moroder

April 26, 1941, Ortisei, Italy

Back in Germany in 1973, performing in a production of Godspell and working as a session singer in Munich's Musicland studios, Summer met producer Giorgio Moroder. Moroder was to be called Summer's "Svengali" due to his influence on her career. On the Oasis label, owned by Moroder and partner Pete Bellotte, Summer made a couple of European hits that were never released in the United States. 1975 saw the end of Summer's relative obscurity, and Love To Love You Baby was the reason why: 17 minutes of romantic lyrics, disco beat, and feigned orgasm delivered while lying down on the studio floor with the lights dimmed. Spin magazine said of this song that it “launched the extended dance mix as we know it - the zygote of house and industrial - and invented the 12-inch.” ~ Musicianguide: Donna Summer ~ retrieved April 25, 2016 © Musicianguide

Over the course of his career, Mr. Moroder has worked with some of the most famous names in music including Barbra Streisand, Elton John, Cher, Janet Jackson and David Bowie. He is heavily noted for being the key player in the Queen of Disco Donna Summer's rise to fame throughout the 1970s. ~ Giorgio Moroder: Giorgio Moroder ~ retrieved April 24, 2016 © Giorgio Moroder

“The fact that I can get involved with young artists is just great,” Moroder said. Now 74 years old, he beamed about working on a new studio album (the working title is 74 Is The New 24) that will include singers like Foxes and Charli XCX. He recently released a music video for his new song Right Here, Right Now with Kylie Minogue. Along with this album, he is working on a movie soundtrack and the video game score to the new Tron video game - alongside 27 year-old Sonny Moore (Skrillex). ~ EDM Sauce: Giorgio Moroder & Skrillex To Score Tron Video Game ~ February 12, 2015 © EDM Sauce
