Synthly the Best

Here at Synthly the Best we’ll be providing stirring synth sounds to enhance your quality of life in the bedroom, board room, and any manner of chamber found betwixt the two. For our first installment on this lovely Saturday afternoon, we launch right in with a true heavyweight: Giorgio Moroder.

Mr. Moroder is, of course, an electronic music pioneer and the veritable godfather of disco — but it’s specifically his soundtrack work that’s been dominating the turntable here at the TTH offices of late. Have a listen to “Paul’s Theme (Jogging Chase),” the opener to side B of his score to Paul Schrader’s 1982 film, Cat People. While you’re at it, be sure to say a long hello to the rain-drenched Nastassja Kinski gracing the album cover.
