Giorgio Moroder – Battlestar Galactica

Giorgio (Hansjoerg) Moroder (on record sleeves often only Giorgio) is a three-time Oscar-winning and three-time Grammy Award-winning Italian record producer, songwriter and performer. His work with synthesizers during the 1970s and 1980s had a significant influence on new wave, house, techno and electronic music in general. Donna Summer during the era of disco (including “I Feel Love” and Love to Love You Baby), Moroder is the founder of the former Musicland Studios in Munich, which was used as a recording studio for artists including Electric Light Orchestra, Led Zeppelin, Queen and Elton John. He also founded his own record label the Oasis Records which later became a subdivision of Casablanca Records.

Here is some tasty disco from ole’ Moroder the sensei master! It’s almost 4 different songs in one, kinda like an old hiphop battle record. It is actually the 2nd part of the extended track/mix entitled ‘Evolution’ which covers more than 10 different themes in total. The first 5 minutes are pretty standard funky disco, but when the break kicks off, the drums come into their own, cowbells follow and then those huge cinematic strings…..leading us up to a contrasting climax organ piece……. sleazy!
