DTM: As I’m listening to a lot of your music on the way here, the first thing I’m saying is, “There is an assumption today that electronic music is just that…you had a lot of horns, you had real instrumentation. There were a ton of real musicians, but it was the synthesizer was the underpin that put all the other stuff together. You were the king of great songs and rhythms that had an electronic base to them!
Giorgio Moroder: A lot of those early disco songs didn’t have any electronics. “Love To Love You Baby” was all real musicians, real strings. It started with “I Feel Love” and I added the bass line. But even after that, it was very difficult to create a drum in the synthesizer, it just doesn’t sound right.
