That was the year he cut ‘I Feel Love’ a dancefloor stomper with ice-water in its veins and a protean disco throb that would serve as a manifesto for generations of DJs and producers. Credit for creating modern electronica usually goes to Moroder’s immediate predecessors – Kraftwerk and their acolytes – but make no mistake, were it not for ‘I Feel Love’ the genre as we know it today simply wouldn’t exist. Out of nothing, from nowhere, he forged something radical and new.
