Who’s that Giorgio guy on Random Access Memories?

So, if you’re like me, you listened to Random Access Memories and wondered, ‘who’s this Giorgio guy talking over Daft Punk’s awesome music?’  Well, I just looked him up on Wikipedia, and holy crap.  Apparently, nearly all of techno owes its popularity and roots to this guy.  I’ve included a rather lengthy video of a live session he did in New York not too long ago.  I think it’s a great session of classic techno sounds, beats, and melodies, and I’m pretty sure it covers a lot of his music career.  If you have the time, I highly recommend it!
