Amoeba Review

06/15/2015

Disco has been declared dead and revived countless times, yet one of its originators, the genius producer Giorgio Moroder, is still standing strong. At 75, Moroder is back with his first album in 30 years, following a resurgence that sparked when Daft Punk honored Moroder with the song “Giorgio by Moroder” on their smash 2013 album, Random Access Memories. Moroder’s influence continues to be felt across pop culture, from dance music to movie and film soundtracks such as the popular score for Drive, such that no one would begrudge Moroder for looking back (on an album called Deja Vu, no less). Yet the album is firmly rooted in the present—as Kylie Minogue sings on the album’s sultry first single, “there’s nowhere else but right here, right now.” Moroder gets down with a variety of big stars, recreating Suzanne Vega’s “Tom’s Diner” and its DNA remix as a vehicle for Britney Spears to purr through sexed-up retellings of Vega’s originally dry observations. Sia gets to go full disco diva on the hooky title track, Charli XCX does her sunny best on the classic-house-style “Diamonds” and Mikky Ekko helps Moroder craft a memorable chorus on “Don’t Let Go.” But nothing is as great as when Moroder goes it alone on tracks like the awesomely titled “74 is the new 24,” updating the Hi-NRG sound he created with the kind of dynamics found in current EDM. He’s still got it—as if there was any question.
