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.
