A fact that is either shocking, or not a surprise at all: 73 year old electronic music pioneer and all-around legend, Giorgio “The Father of Disco” Moroder has never performed a live DJ set. Until a few days ago, as part of Red Bull Music Academy: “One of the true greats of disco and electronic music, Giorgio Moroder brought a very European aesthetic to black American dance grooves. Although Italian by upbringing, Moroder did most of his work in Munich and the influence of Düsseldorf’s Kraftwerk can be heard in his work for Donna Summer, which includes two of the ultimate disco anthems, I Feel Love and Love To Love You Baby. This was motorik music: spacious, trippy, ever-lasting, far removed from the relentless bounce of most disco. Giorgio Moroder is also a supreme composer of soundtracks, scoring an unlikely success with The Chase, the theme from Midnight Express, and his footprints are all over British synth-pop, from Pet Shop Boys to New Order to Human League. It was with the latter’s Phil Oakey that he got his biggest self-credited hit in 1984, Together In Electric Dreams.” – RBMA iframe not supported!

I complain about Lupe Fiasco often. Quite often. Mainly because I know that when his music is good, it’s among the best that Hip-Hop has to offer. He set a very high standard for himself early on, and its aggravating as a fan when he doesn’t meet it. Don’t know if this new track, “Animal Farm” will feature on his (supposed) new album Tetsuo & Youth, but it certainly meets the mark of Lupe at his best. The Atoms For Peace sample doesn’t hurt, either.
