Moroder had won another Grammy for his '90s reunion with Donna Summer on the song "Carry On." Having becoming increasingly quiet on the music scene, focusing on his skills as a visual artist and designer, he came back into the spotlight with 2013's Random Access Memories by electronica/dance duo Daft Punk (Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo). On the album, the producer talked about his personal history and creating new dance music forms on the aptly titled track "Giorgio by Moroder." He has subsequently done live DJ work.
