Compared to the original version, presented at CES in Las Vegas in January 2020, this remix reinterprets some of the iconic atmosphere of the ’80s with a more modern dance style and with the essential, simple but ingenious Moroder touch. It also introduces a special effect that immediately brings to mind the sound of the new engines of the future.
With “Preludio Remix”, Giorgio Moroder, in partnership with FPT Industrial, shows us not only how to move on the dance floor but also how to move on the road in a way that is cleaner and more sustainable, but still electrifying.
The new track has its global premiere, presented by Moroder himself, on 11 February at 1 pm during the fourth day of Electric Days, the first entirely digital event dedicated to vehicle electrification. The event is scheduled to be held from 8 through 12 February 2021 with the organization of Motorsport Network in collaboration with Condé Nast (Wired/GQ/Vanity Fair). FPT Industrial is the only industrial engine manufacturer on a prestigious list of partners that includes a full house of all the elite global car manufacturers, as well as important energy and technology companies.
“Being able to imagine the sound of energy transition toward zero-emissions mobility was an exciting adventure that I shared with my friends at FPT Industrial and that I can't wait to share with the whole world”, said Giorgio Moroder. “I have always had a great passion for innovation: in the ’70s I was one of the first to introduce the synthesizer to the world of pop music and in the ’80s I was one of the first to do digital recording. Working on the sound of the engine of the future gave me the chance to think about how much the concept of innovation goes hand in hand with that of humanization, and I represented that in Preludio Remix: I used the synthesizer, but also strings, trumpet and percussion, and the result is a perfect mix.”
The five days of the Electric Days event, including Giorgio Moroder's presentation, can be followed live at www.electricdays.it and Motor1.com, InsideEVs.it, Wired, Vanity Fair and GQ. Immediately after the “Preludio Remix by Giorgio Moroder”.
