Tom Moulton on the first mixtape, remixing and the industry | Red Bull Music Academy INTERVIEW Documentary Music Producer / Remixer


Tom Moulton
 on the first mixtape, remixing and the industry 
Legends of the Music Industry Series
Tom Moulton is the producer famed for his mixes of Gloria Gaynor’s “Never Can Say Goodbye,” MFSB’s “Love Is the Message” and hundreds of other disco and soul songs, beginning with B.T. Express’s 1974 hit “Do It (’Til You’re Satisfied).” He’s credited with a remarkable series of innovations, which he says all happened by accident, including the 12" single and the continuous disco mix.

In his 2013 Red Bull Music Academy lecture, Moulton remembered his teenage years ordering singles for record stores and recounted how he got from there to the gay nightlife of Fire Island.

Dubbed “the father of the disco mix,” Tom Moulton has contributed more to the evolution of dance music culture than most other producers. Born in New York in 1940, Moulton worked as a model and behind the scenes in the music industry before turning his hand to studio work. In the late 1960s, he created an “overlapping music tape” for Fire Island bar and restaurant the Sandpiper, and his innovative approach to producing and mixing disco songs first became apparent in 1975, when he turned the first side of Gloria Gaynor’s Never Can Say Goodbye album into a nonstop, 19-minute suite.

Giorgio Moroder was a key figure in the mid-to-late-1970s Eurodisco scene, and one of real pioneers of using synthesizers in dance music.The early part of his career took place in Munich, where he made his name by discovering Donna Summer (and writing/producing the bulk of her catalogue). In the late 1970s he moved to L.A., and ended up doing a ridiculous amount of film-work. Seriously, if we're talking 80s pop trash and cheesy film soundtracks, Giorgio's name is bound to come up: he scored American GigoloScarfaceMidnight ExpressTop GunFlashdanceThe Neverending Story, and some fly-by-night B-movie fare like the horrible colorized recut of Fritz Lang's Metropolis and the Mr. T vehicle D.C. Cab. He wrote/produced "Call Me" by Blondie, "Take My Breath Away" for Berlin, "(Highway to the) Danger Zone" by Kenny Loggins, almost anything you can think of by Donna Summer, and that's really just scratching the surface of the tunes he's made that everyone knows (and let's not forget, he has a HUGE catalogue of crazy underground synth disco gems on top of that).
