“My name is Giovanni Giorgio, but everybody calls me Giorgio.”
Oh gosh. We’d better have a little sit down. Giorgio by Moroder from Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories was fantastic enough, but now things just got a whole lot better and a whole lot bigger. The king of the disco synth is returning properly with a new album.
If you’ve spent any time on Breaking More Waves you’ll probably have seen Moroder’s name crop up multiple times in reference points; recent examples include Indiana and Salt Ashes. Today no reference is required – he returns. Not only is he back with a belting piece of robot disco called 74 Is The New 24 that gives both Daft Punk and Kraftwerk a run for their money but there’s an album to follow next year that includes the likes of Charli XCX! Britney! Kylie! Foxes! It really as if we’re living together in electric dreams.
