Giorgio From Here to Eternity

Giorgio Moroder would never say he invented electronic sequencing, but Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream weren‘t nearly as interested in testing it out in the dance clubs, and they didn‘t make four to the floor a way of life. His "I Feel Love" sequence (dunga, dunga, dunga, dunga) for Donna Summer was patent-worthy, and "The Chase" has been the centerpiece of countless sets, but From Here To Eternity (also Casablanca, 1977) was Giorgio‘s record. The father of Eurodisco, hi-energy, and Italo designed this album not only for the floor or the mattress, but for your headphones and your car. From the vocoders to the completely electronic percussion, this record is the original Dirty Vegas commercial over two decades ahead of its time.
