DANCE FLOOR ICON GIORGIO MORODER KICKS OFF HIS GLORIOUS SECOND ACT
GIORGIO MORODER, THE MUSICAL WIZARD BEHIND SOME OF DISCO’S MOST ENDURING HITS, TAKES ANOTHER TWIRL ON THE DANCE FLOOR.
THE HAIR WAS FEATHERED, bodysuits were tight, and dance floors were packed. The soundtrack? Giorgio Moroder. The heavily mustachioed Italian producer and recording artist was one of the chief architects of disco and techno, crafting several lascivious superhits for Donna Summer, along with the timeless Blondie classic “Call Me.” He also designed a luxury sports car, collected a few Academy Awards and Grammys, and made a spectacular deejaying debut—at age 73. Moroder’s forthcoming album features Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Sia, and Charli XCX. Here, a half century of Giorgio.
