The iconic Giorgio Moroder, founder of disco and electronic music trailblazer, has partnered with Bridges for Music charity to present his first new solo album in over 30 years. This special fundraising evening will be held at Shoreditch House on Wednesday 27th May and all proceeds of the evening will be invested in the construction of a music school in the township of Langa in Cape Town. 

Bridges for Music ethos of creating positive change through the power of music couldn't be more aligned with Giorgio's vision of dance music. 

"I believe dance music can be an amazing tool to break down social barriers and bring hope. Dance music doesn't care of where you live, who your friends are or how much money you make, neither if you are 74 or 24!", comments Moroder. 

The evening will start with an intimate conversation with Giorgio, exclusively discussing and previewing tracks from his upcoming album Déjà Vu, his first solo project in over 30 years, which is set for release on June 15th 2015.  The album features a super star line up of collaborators including Britney Spears, Mikky Ecko, Kylie Minogue, Sia, Foxes and Matthew Coma with more to be announced soon. The three times academy award winner will also respond to some questions from the audience during a short Q&A.  Tickets for this talk are very limited and available on  http://www.residentadvisor.net/event.aspx?719237

After the panel, Shoreditch House will celebrate the album launch with a rooftop party, where Bridges for Music will also be running a charity raffle and auction to raise funds for their program. Music from Ben Pearce who will be playing an exclusive vinyl only disco set.

In February 2015 Loco Dice landed in South Africa with non-profit organization Bridges for Music. Bridges for Music works with artists , festivals and fans to create positive change in the world (www.bridgesformusic.org), focusing on empowering communities through the power of music and education. The aim of this tour was connecting with the local scene through a series of workshops in the townships of Langa (Cape Town) and Soweto (Johannesburg) and raising money through the shows that took place in partnership with Truth, Zone 6 and the Cape Town Electronic Music festival.
 
Thanks to all the artists and companies involved and specially to Red Bull Studio for its involvement and continued support.
