Giorgio Moroder at the Hollywood Bowl

On Saturday, May 10, the father of disco Giorgio Moroder will join another old school disco dude Nile Rodgers (and Chic), along with some new schoolers: Oliver, Tensnake and Destructo (that’s HARD’s Gary Richards).

Remember all those wonderful things I said about Giorgio Moroder when I posted his Haim remix? Well, I meant them all. And Nile Rodgers has got some major vintage and modern dance funk accolades, too. Giorgio and Nile were both key collaborators on Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories.

New Remix: Haim “Forever” (Giorgio Moroder Remix)

Haim - Forever (Giorgio Moroder Remix)

First of all, a brief rundown of the awesomeness that is Giorgio Moroder:

Heard of Donna Summer? The movie Scarface? Flashdance? Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories? Giorgio had his Italian hands in all of those and more. Check his Wikipedia page and get ready to waste an hour looking at links and YouTube videos. Neverending Story? Yeah, he scored that, too.

They call him (or at least he calls himself) the father of DISCO.

So papa disco Giorgio Moroder decided to bless the Haim sisters with a remix of their hit “Forever.” Give it a listen. Moroder vocoder fun starts about 1:30 in.

Look at how rad this guy looked back in the day. Gah.
