When Daft Punk released “Random Access Memories” in 2013 they reintroduced a generation to Giorgio Moroder. Moroder’s influence can be seen in the work of Daft Punk, Mirwais, and Madonna’s “Confessions on the Dance floor” producer, Stuart Price. A true pioneer of such classics as “I Feel Love” and “Last Dance” by Donna Summers, Blondie’s “Call Me” and the theme song for the film the Neverending Story, Moroder left an indelible mark on late 70s and early 80s pop music.
Daft Punk has shown Moroder’s influences since “Discovery” album released in 2001. Fast track to today and Moroder has remixed Haim, done dj sets at the Mondrian, and secretly been working with a few of today’s top talents. Rumor is that he is working with Sia, Charlie XCX, and Britney Spears among others. The first of these collaborations, a track with Kylie Minogue “Right Here, Right Now ” was released on Monday.
