Déjà Vu

Disco’s Wizard of Oz shows he’s still got some of his old magic

Giorgio Moroder

In the Seventies and Eighties, Giorgio Moroder crafted disco hits for Donna Summer, Blondie and David Bowie. Now, after a nudge from Daft Punk, the 75-year-old Svengali is attempting a decades-in-the-making comeback with a cast of A-list collaborators. Although a handful of dated, unimaginative instrumentals drag down Déjà Vu's momentum, Moroder has always been more of a singles artist. His tracks featuring Charli XCX, Sia and Kylie Minogue are all pure pop candy — and the full-scale renovation that he and Britney Spears give to Suzanne Vega's "Tom's Diner" transforms the restaurant into a new Studio 54.
