Giovanni Giorgio Moroder (born 26 April 1940)[1][2] is an Italian singer, songwriter, DJ and record producer. Moroder is frequently credited with pioneering Italo disco and electronic dance music.[3]

Moroder contributed to Daft Punk's 2013 studio album Random Access Memories, admitting that he was a fan of their song "One More Time" before working with the group.[4] His voice and story are on the album track "Giorgio by Moroder". On the track he states, "My name is Giovanni Giorgio, but everybody calls me Giorgio."[5]

Daft Punk has previously used Moroder's song "The Chase" on their Daftendirektour performances, mixed with their own song "Around the World".[6]
