Oscillations #49: Giorgio Moroder


Giorgio Moroder is an influential Italian record producer, songwriter and performer. When in Munich in the 1970s, he started his own record label called Oasis Records, which several years later became a subdivision of Casablanca Records. He collaborated with Donna Summer during the era of disco and is the founder of the former Musicland Studios in Munich, which was used as a recording studio by artists including the Electric Light Orchestra, Led Zeppelin, Queen and Elton John.

After producing the first disco hit entirely produced with a synthesizer, "I Feel Love", Moroder kept the collaboration going with engineer Robert Wedell to create a solo album: "From Here To Eternity"

In the production credits, it is stated that "only electronic keyboards were used in the making of this album". The first part of the album is a nonstop dance mix that has been said to influence future generations of house music producers.
