Giorgio Moroder‘s synth-wizardry gets some shine on “Giorgio’s Theme,” the first offering from Adult Swim‘s Summer single series. The innovator of disco and champion of the dance-floor groove unleashes another masterful piece, stitching together the four-to-the-floor madness of 78’s club culture with cleaner production and a crucial funk guitar lick into a tapestry of dance music that hits on a workout mix just as hard as it would at a beach-front party in Ibiza. You can stream Giorgio Moroder’s “Girogio’s Theme” below, but stay tuned after the jump to watch the great electric orchestrator speak to his legacy, working with and discovering Donna Summer, contributions to EDM, and his scores for Midnight Express and Scarface.
