Giorgio Moroder returns with ominous new score, ‘Moyocoyotzin’
The Godfather of Disco is back, though this time Giorgio Moroder has surfaced with a much darker, dramatic offering than his Grammy-winning contributions to Daft Punk‘s 2014 comeback LP Random Access Memories. The “Good For Me” producer’s newest delivery marks his return to scoring film and television after nearly 40 years, with “Moyocoyotzin,” from the new soundtrack to USA’s Queen Of The South. Moroder, who is already an Academy Award winner for his work on 1978’s Midnight Express, along with credentials on 80’s flicks like Scarface and Cat People, lends his talents to the crime drama, joining with producer Raney Shockne on his latest.
“Moyocoyotzin” isn’t the first collaboration between Shockne and Moroder. The pair first linked up in 2016 on the soundtrack for Disney’s Tron RUN/r video game. Now they’re back together, proctoring an alluring, cinematic new electro composition. Leaning on dark, ominous sonics, wrapped in retro-synth appeal, Giorgio Moroder’s latest invokes a distinctly eerie aesthetic that sounds like it belongs in an episode of Stranger Things. Maybe a S U R V I V E collaboration is in order next?
