Living synth legend Giorgio Moroder: from Donna Summer to Bowie to Blondie to Daft Punk

Cuepoint looks back at the storied career of Giorgio Moroder, the pioneering producer who paved the way for nearly all electronic dance music since the 1970s and is still pushing new beats. Below, my favorite Moroder track, "Chase," heard in the film Midnight Express. From Cuepoint:
