Giorgio Moroder--Live at Deep Space, May 20, 2013

Giorgio Moroder is a legend. For those younger than 40 ;) Moroder was the major producer for such disco artists as Donna Summer and movie soundtracks including "Scarface." When I saw this link from Tommie Sunshine regarding Moroder's first EVER DJ mix, I tried to download it. However, the site hosting it, Red Bull Music Academy Radio, has it on lock. So I decided to post it here to listen to, and hopefully, someone will get an mp3 (and tracklisting) out on it soon! Here's the bio on Giorgio Moroder from the Red Bull Music Academy Radio site:

"One of the true greats of disco and electronic music, Giorgio Moroder brought a very European aesthetic to black American dance grooves. Althoug;postID=8002954432563759279h Italian by upbringing, Moroder did most of his work in Munich and the influence of Düsseldorf’s Kraftwerk can be heard in his work for Donna Summer, which includes two of the ultimate disco anthems, I Feel Love and Love To Love You Baby. This was motorik music: spacious, trippy, ever-lasting, far removed from the relentless bounce of most disco. Giorgio Moroder is also a supreme composer of soundtracks, scoring an unlikely success with The Chase, the theme from Midnight Express, and his footprints are all over British synth-pop, from Pet Shop Boys to New Order to Human League. It was with the latter’s Phil Oakey that he got his biggest self-credited hit in 1984, Together In Electric Dreams."
