EDM and Giorgio Moroder

Here is an interesting thing I picked up on a Cubase Users group post.

Quote
I was engaged in synth-geek debate this morning and wanted to mention it here. Do you know who Giorgio Moroder is? He's the guy who invented EDM and made synths more mainstream. More 70's & 80's hits than you can shake a stick at--Take My Breath Away--Giorgio. Blondie "Call Me"-Giorgio. Donna Summer, "I feel Love"--Giorgio. Neverending Story theme--Giorgio. Midnight Express theme "the Chase"--Giorgio. I think part of the reason we all have cubase is THIS GUY making synths popular enough for computer people to create DAWs. Anything with a 4/4 bass drum---all genre's of EDM--they all stem from Giorgio.

Yes, to my knowledge I've only one LP with GM.
But I made many kilometers a year at that time and loved to foot tap around through the NL.

I think his influence on light music in that era is grossly overlooked.
Perhaps that his music, and Trevor Horn's, sound so dated, that this is the mains reason people have turned away from that music.
I still like it, at a low dosage.
Thank you for posting it!
Kind regards, Gus
