If you don’t know who Giorgio Moroder is, we’ll forgive you. At 76 years old, his biggest moments of popularity were before the time of most EDM fans these days.

Moroder has worked with everyone from Barbara Streisand to Freddie Mercury.

However, his work in the music industry has solidified his position at the top. Not only did he essentially discover disco, he also was the forefather of EDM. Back in the late 1970s, he was already experimenting with electronic instrumentation.

“I’m lucky they don’t call me the ‘grandfather’ of EDM,” Moroder joked.

He’s been working the music scene for decades.

Considering that technology has changed a lot since the 1970s, it’s remarkable he was able to get there at all.

“It was much, much more difficult to do it,” he said. “I had the big modular which is the size of a wall. To get any sound out you need to connect it like an old phone switchboard. It was totally out of tune all the time and now…[it’s] a laptop. You have all those sounds and so many more. It’s still difficult, but much, much easier.”
