Italian electronic and disco legend Giorgio Moroder has seen a resurgence in the music world thanks to his collaboration on Daft Punk’s latest hype machine, Random Access Memories. The 73-year-old producer is also getting back to making solo work of his own as well. It seems he loves collaborating with huge names in the electronic realm, because his latest musical creation is a partnership with none other than Google.
“Racer” is the sole track associated with Google Chrome’s experimental racing smartphone game of the same name. Up to 5 players can line up their smartphones to create an extended race track and drive through all 5 screens. The song features Giorgio’s signature groovy synth work and modulated vocals alongside a real heavy club beat and a tickling piano to assist you in your race to the finish line. The experiment is cool, but “Racer” is a fantastic standalone listen as well.
