Popping culture: Moroder joins the online digital age, and JD Twitch interprets Arthur Russell
A little bit of Halloween weekend boogie for you.
Giorgio Moroder, the architect of disco and countless other genres of music that grew forth from disco, has joined SoundCloud, the music-sharing site. The tracks on the site range from his early 1960s experiments to such wonders as "Chase." The website's collection is a must for any serious Moroder fan, and for electronic and dance-music aficionados as well.
In other musical news, DJ and producer JD Twitch is releasing a new single this Tuesday, a reimagining/cover/palimpsest of musical wunderkind Arthur Russell's "Is It All Over My Face." The track, which features that signature opening beat, is titled "Is It All Over the Place." As the original lyrics would say, "It's got me love dancing."
