We’re very thrilled and honored to announce the next installment in our Guilty Pleasure series. Considering it’s Moroder week over at APC, it’s rather obvious that we’re taking on the Godfather of disco himself, Mr Giorgio Moroder!

In close collaboration with MB Disco, APC is gathering the usual suspects to do their magic. The result is due early 2012. And what’s more, MB Disco is releasing the lot digitally.Expect remix goodness from Copycat+VATDunproofinCelebrity Murder PartyDivide & Kreate, and yours truly.

What’s more – there’s a name missing in that line-up. And it could be yours. Check in with AudioPornCentral Friday and be prepared for the remix assignment of your life…
