GIORGIO MORODER'S DISCOTECA
As the founder of disco and an electronic music trailblazer, Giorgio Moroder made his mark as an influential Italian producer, songwriter, performer and DJ. After more that 50 years in the business, Moroder still has his hands in the center of EDM culture, swinging back into the spotlight in 2013 as a guest collaborator on the GRAMMY Award-winning Daft Punk album “Random Access Memories” (Album Of the Year), new remixes for Donna Summer, Coldplay, Lady Gaga, Eurythmics and Haim, and a newfound station as a live DJ which included major festival slots. Over the course of his career, Giorgio Moroder has worked with some of the most famous names in music including Barbra Streisand, Elton John, Cher, Janet Jackson, Freddie Mercury and David Bowie. He is heavily noted for being the key player in the Queen of Disco Donna Summer‘s rise to fame throughout the 1970s, collaborating with her on her biggest hits including “Love To Love You Baby”, “Hot Stuff” and “I Feel Love”. In 1997, Moroder and Summer won the Grammy Award for “Best Dance Recording” for the song "Carry On.” He recently teamed with Verve records to honor Summer with “Love To Love You Donna”, a collection of her most notable hits remixed by Afrojack, Hot Chip, Laidback Luke. Masters at Work and others.

Giorgio Moroder’s music charted success everywhere the disco craze touched down but he is also responsible for some of the most classic film scores to date including Scarface and Midnight Express, as well as timeless soundtrack numbers like “Take My Breath Away” (“Top Gun”), Irene Cara’s “Flashdance… What a Feeling”, Blondie’s “Call Me” (American Gigolo), as well as compositions on films such as “The Never Ending Story”, “Superman III”, “Rambo III” and “Beverly Hills Cop II”. From these, Moroder has accumulated three Academy Awards, four Golden Globes, four Grammys and more than 100 gold and platinum records. Giorgio Moroder was inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame in 2004.

Originally from Val Gardena-Dolomiti, Italy, Giorgio Moroder spent his early years in music touring Europe; playing bass and guitar in pop-oriented ensembles. He first gained popularity in Mucich, where in 1969, the release of his single “Looky Looky” was awarded a gold disc. He eventually teamed up with Pete Bellotte and Donna Summer’s “Love to Love You Baby”, the song that is now credited with starting the popular, worldwide disco craze.

Moroder has worked with several of the biggest names in music, including: Barbra Streisand, Elton John, Cher, Roger Daltrey, Janet Jackson, Freddie Mercury, David Bowie, Chaka Khan, Cheap Trick, and Pat Benatar. Among his biggest hit singles are Donna Summer’s “Hot Stuff” and “I Feel Love,” David Bowie’s “Putting Out the Fire” and Blondie’s “Call Me.”
His many innovative film scores include three Academy Award winners. The first came for his score to the 1978 film “Midnight Express”. The second recognized was Irene Cara’s inspirational hit, “Flashdance… What a Feeling”, from the film “Flashdance”. Lastly, “Take My Breath Away” from the film “Top Gun”, brought him his third Academy Award.
Compositions by Moroder have also contributed to numerous other hit films such as “Superman III”, “Rambo III”, “Beverly Hills Cop II”, and the score for the 1983 gangster epic, “Scarface”.
In 1998, he received his third Grammy for the song “Carry On,” performed by Donna Summer, among countless other awards and honors.
Moroder’s creativity has also entered the realms of sports and global affairs. He wrote the songs “Reach Out” for the 1984 Olympics, “Hand in Hand” for the 1988 Olympics, the worldwide hit song “To Be Number One” for the 1990 Soccer World Cup in Italy, and “Forever Friends” for the 2008 Summer Olympics.

Little Boots returns with new EP, 'Burn', her most exciting release to date. A collaborative project of an entirely female talent, the record sees her sound shift even closer to the dance floor, claiming a darker, more atmospheric territory inspired by her recent DJ sets, whilst retaining Victoria’s signature pop sensibilities. The result is an electrifying fusion of forward thinking dance production and her trademark melodies and lyrics, which debuted at Number 1 in the Electronic Charts in the US, UK and Canada.

Making headlines and chart topping hits since she first emerged in 2008, Little Boots won the respected BBC Sound Of poll and a Brits Critics Choice nomination just a year later. Fusing massive pop hooks onto otherworldly electronic soundscapes it showed a pop star willing to experiment, and her debut album 'Hands' reached the top 5 in the UK album chart and was quickly certified Gold. Her electrifying live show gained a reputation, pushing boundaries with ground breaking instruments and synthesizers such as the Tenori-on and Laser Harp, culminating in memorable live performances at Glastonbury and Coachella to name a few.

Freeing herself of the major label machine she went on to found her own label On Repeat Records and independently released various EPs and two more critically acclaimed
albums - 2013’s ‘Nocturnes’ and most recently 'Working Girl’, as well as signing and developing up and coming talent. In 2017 she collaborated with the legendary Jean-Michel Jarre and co-wrote the lead single for his latest record, which received a Grammy nomination for Best Electronic Album.

As a DJ her ties with the dance culture are deep and long-running. From her first legendary white label release 'Stuck On Repeat’, produced by Joe Goddard, to gracing Mixmag's cover, it's hard to think of another popstar to have garnered anywhere near
as much credibility from the dance world's inner-circle. From collaborating with dance royalty Maya Jane Coles, Hercules and Love Affair and Simian Mobile Disco, to her own decorated DJ career, highlights including her live set for Mixmag Lab which has clocked up over 1.4 million views, curating one of Space’s closing We Love party in Ibiza and spinning everywhere from Glastonbury to Valentino’s latest launch at Milan Fashion Week.

Rob Paine's roots run deep. From the moment he really felt music as a youth, he knew where his mind, body, and soul would take him on his life’s journey. That passion has provided the foundation for a diverse and eclectic musical immersion ever since. He has been on a rapid rise from bedroom mix tapes to underground events to DJing internationally since he started out in 1993. He, along with his Circle Production crew, created and curated some of the most epic parties in Philadelphia throughout the 90’s. In parallel, he began to flex his music theory education and production expertise by creating a broad range of songs across a myriad of genres such as house, techno, reggae, broken beat, dub, and down-tempo. Rob formed WORSHIP RECORDINGS in 1998 along with Dan Thompson and Zack Eberz. This brand clearly reflected his vision to pay respect to the roots of music while inspiring himself and others to innovate for the future. In fact, in 1999 he was awarded the “Most Innovative Producer” by the Philadelphia City Paper. During that time, he and Zack began using the SOLOMONIC SOUND name for their productions and as a vehicle for releasing their dub-influenced house and techno tracks on Worship. Rob also released as a solo artist and collaborated with Wamdu’s Chris Udoh for early Worship releases. Now with his passion reinforced by the labels’ success and critical industry acclaim, Rob’s unique sounds were soon being released on labels like Large, Tango, Shaboom, and Grayhound to underground and commercial success. Inaddition, his productions were also licensed to labels such as Bedrock, Fabric, and NRK as part of compilations. Soon after, another canvas was unveiled as a tapestry to showcase the WorshipRecordings productions and artists: the SHAKEDOWN parties. Rob, Willyum, and Zack launched Shakedown in 2002 and they are still going strong today, evidence that music – done right, is enduring. Rob’s events always feature incredible sound via the “Solomonic Sound System” that he and his crew developed and have fine-tuned to audiophile quality for discerning DJs and dancers. That same uniqueness and quality is evident in his custom-designed studio... apparent when you hear Rob’s production and remix work. The world has been the recipient of Rob’s talents through his performances across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Jamaica, and London in iconic clubs/parties such as Fabric, PS1, and Deep Space. Rob has also held down residencies in New York, Washington D.C., San Francisco, and Miami, and has played at festivals such as the massive Shambhala & Soundwave festivals in British Columbia. In 2012, Rob and Francisco Collazo established ‘goodie'... a series of
special monthly underground events highlighting the facets of techno while hosting local and international talent. As 2017 comes to fruition, be on the look out for Worship’s new dub techno event ‘Universal Delay’. Collaborations, productions, remixes, and releases continue to abound for Rob on Worship Recordings, LeftRoom, I Recordings, Hallucienda, Yoruba, Doin’Work, Dubwise, ZamZam Sounds, Kaato and on compilations like one done by Maceo Plex in 2013. Releases under the CIRCLE moniker with partner KeithLandis, a RISE 8 collaboration with Gerhardt Koerner, and through his HEIGHTS & WORSHIP and RMP aliases... are making chart waves worldwide. With his musical roots, proven success as a label owner / producer / DJ / event creator, and with his innovative approach to melding electronic dance music...Rob Paine is one of the music icons in the City of Brotherly & Sisterly Love and across the world. His commitment to the city and the world’s music lovers is unwavering and his unique and diverse vision will ensure his success and our enjoyment into the future.
