Scanning down Hansjorg ‘Giorgio’ Moroder’s discography is an enlightening experience. He’s a fairly prominent producer from back in the day (that day being any day from the 60s until the present). He was responsible for penning ‘I Feel Love’ with Donna Summer, he’s worked with the likes of Led Zep, Queen and Elton John and he was also responsible for most of the music on the Top Gun soundtrack. At the age of 72 he’s decided to get down with the kids and create a Soundcloud account, which is stacked with many of his top tunes.
Bringing his music even closer to the present, the Swedish nu disco label MB Disco is releasing an EP which features remixes of Moroder’s classic 1977 hit ‘From Here To Eternity’. Below is Aeroplane’s effort. He successfully retains the classic feel of the whirling disco tune, but also adds a welcome bouncy and cosmic edge.
This is out now.
