"Megatron Man" by Patrick Cowley - Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
The sound of keyboards and synthesizers exploded in 1981 with Patrick Cowley's project "Megatron Man" - this being the new age of electronic disco. The mid and late 70's were given a taste of sequencers and robotic keyboard melodies as artists like Giorgio Moroder left a wide space in our minds for synthetic disco music.
Patrick Cowley had been a vital part of disco's transition to high energy during the second dance explosion in the early 80's. It was obvious with tracks like "Menergy" and "Megatron Man" that disco music was ready for another growth period.
I have taken "Megatron Man" and blended it with the 1982 sci-fi adventure film, "Tron" starring Jeff Bridges, Bruce Boxleitner and David Warner. The graphics and adventure are appropriate in the fantasy of Cowley's now classic.
The film was directed by Steven Lisberger
