Biography of The Moroders
|Real name / || |
In the beginning it was Italo Disco that introduced long-term friends Conrad, Philipp and Lars to electronic music. Muddled by the sight of seductive synthesizers they quickly called themselves The Moroders and shortened their christian names to just their initials. Since then L Moroder has taken care of the visual appearance while C and P man the record players.
A DJ-set by The Moroders is always informed by an unruly appetite to discover good music. Always willing to convey electronic music not only in line with obvious Detroit and Chicago parameters, it is mostly canny House and Disco-Tech that forms the basis of their sets. It has
never really occurred to them that records are purchased according to genres. Therefore it is no surprise to find them incorporating a Dubstep track as well as a long a forgotten polish funk-gem, a principle that also renders their mixes to something special and less common.
As residents and bookers of their bimonthly club night Cosmic Dancer that was established in 2006 they invite their favourite artists such as Todd Terje, Mr Raoul K and Runaway to their beloved home town. They also run a blog at www.themoroders.com and host a monthly radio show at the independent radio station coloRadio in Dresden. Recently, they have become founding members of the Uncally Valley collective and further established themselves as an integral part of Dresden's electronic music scene.
