STREAM: Giorgio Moroder DJ Set


giorgiomoroder.jpgOn Monday night, at Output in Brooklyn, as part of the 2013 Red Bull Music Academy, dancers were treated to a very special session of Francois K’s long-running Deep Space, this included the first ever DJ appearance from Giorgio Moroder.   After a vocodered intro, The legendary producer rolled through his back catalogue of hits including Donna Summer’s I Feel Love, Bad Girls, One The Radio and his recent entry on Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories, Giorgio By Moroder.   This was motorik music: spacious, trippy, ever-lasting, far removed from the relentless bounce of most disco and it was all recorded for RBMA Radio so you can listen below. The New York gig wasn’t a one-off. “I am becoming a DJ…and I don’t know why, really,” Moroder cheerfully told Time Out New York recently, adding that he’s got an agent for DJing and a set booked in Japan.  “I feel like DJs aren’t just the new stars; the really good ones are so powerful,” Moroder added toTime Out. “I was in Ibiza last summer, and it was incredible. It’s like a conductor, telling the musicians, ‘Go slow now. Go loud now.’ DJs are doing the same thing. I’m not there yet, but I hope it will happen.”

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
