Kids these days know Hansjörg Giovanni “Giorgio” Moroder as one of the producers of Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories. In actual fact, he’s the grandfather of modern dance music, having advocated the use of the synthesiser and sequencing technology, thus revolutionising the sound of disco music in the late 70s.
Not only was Moroder responsible for producing hits for Donna Summer, Irene Cara and Blondie, the man scored soundtracks for Top Gun, Midnight Express, Flashdance and The NeverEnding Story.
