MORE ON GIORGIO MORODER

The father of Disco and pioneer of Electronic Dance Music. Moroder is officially the oldest DJ in the world and a collaborator of the new Daft Punk album, he won 3 Oscars, 3 Golden Globes and 4 Grammys.

An Italian composer from South Tyrol, Moroder made his first steps in music by releasing a few singles under the name «Giorgio» beginning in 1966, singing in Italian, English, and German. He came to prominence in 1969, when his recording «Looky Looky», released on Ariola Records, was awarded a gold disc in October 1970. Often collaborating with lyricist Pete Bellotte, Moroder had a number of hits in his own name including «Son of My Father» in 1972 before releasing the synthesizer-driven From Here to Eternity, a notable chartbuster in 1977, and in the following year releasing «Chase», the theme from the film Midnight Express. These songs achieved some chart success in the UK, the U.S., and across Europe, and everywhere disco-mania was spreading. The full movie score for Midnight Express won him his first Academy Award for best film score in 1978. In 1979, Moroder released his album E=MC². Text on the album's cover stated that it was the «first electronic live-to-digital album.» He also released three albums between 1977-1979 under the name Munich Machine.

In 1984, Moroder worked with Philip Oakey of The Human League to make the album Philip Oakey & Giorgio Moroder; which was a UK singles chart hit with «Together in Electric Dreams», title track to the 1984 movie Electric Dreams. In 1986, Moroder collaborated with his protégé Harold Faltermeyer (of «Axel F.» fame) and lyricist Tom Whitlock to create the score for the film Top Gun (1986), with the most noteworthy hit being Berlin's «Take My Breath Away». «Chase» was also used as an entrance theme for wrestling's group The Midnight Express. In 1987, Moroder produced Falco's song «Body Next to Body».

In 1997, Moroder and Donna Summer won the Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording for the song «Carry On».

On 20 September 2004 Moroder was honored at the Dance Music Hall of Fame ceremony, held in New York, when he was inducted for his many outstanding achievements and contributions as producer. In 2005, he was given the title of Commendatore by the then President of the Italian Republic, Carlo Azeglio Ciampi. On September 5, 2010 Moroder received the Great Order of Merit of the Autonomous Province of Bolzano-Bozen.

At the 56th Grammy Awards in 2014 he won his 4th Grammy for 'Best Album of the Year' (Random Access Memories).

In summer 2013, Giorgio started to DJ, giving his US debut at the Red Bull Music Academy in New York City.
At the same time people started to call him «The Godfather of EDM».
He visited London, Ibiza, Los Angeles, Berlin, Vienna, New York, Brazil, Miami, Asheville, Italy, Luxembourg, Belgium, France and many more.

Giorgio is DJing at famous clubs around the world and entertains the fans and party-guests with a video show (Music Videos, Animations).
