The synth legend and Daft Punk collaborator hit the decks for an hour in New York
Synth pioneer Giorgio Moroder has played his first ever DJ set – at the age of 73. Watch footage of it below.
As Spin reports, the disco legend took to the decks at the Red Bull Music Academy’s New York residency in Brooklyn, playing hits from across his career including Donna Summer’s ‘I Feel Love’, ‘Bad Girls’, ‘On The Radio’ and ‘Hot Stuff’ as well as his recent collaboration with Daft Punk, ‘Giorgio By Moroder’, which features on the duo’s new album ‘Random Access Memories’.
Last month, Moroder said that “everybody” wants to work with him following his recent collaboration with the French dance robots. “Since the publicity of the Daft Punk song, which is not even out yet, it’s like everybody wants me now,” said Moroder, who also revealed he had since received offers to from different management companies. “I’m sure once I go with one I’m going to have a lot of work.”
This Sunday (May 19), Daft Punk‘s ‘Get Lucky’ became the second biggest-selling UK single of the year, as it remains top of the Official UK Singles Chart for a fourth consecutive week. After surpassing the 500,000 sales mark last week, the track, which features Pharrell Williams and Chic’s Nile Rodgers, has added a further 114,000 copies sold to take the figure to 606,000, reports the Official Charts Company.
