Giorgio Moroder ft. Kylie Minogue - Right Here, Right Now

"Right Here, Right Now" is a song by Italian music producer Giorgio Moroder featuring Kylie Minogue; it was released as the second single from Moroder's fourteenth studio alubm Déjà Vu (2015).

Another song with the same name was released in 1991 on Kylie's fourth studio album Let's Get to It, but the two songs bear no resemblance.

Composition

"Right Here Right Now" is a dance club song that is a disco track that is influenced by funk and electronic music.

Background

"Right Here, Right Now" is served as the second single from Giorgio Moroder's studio album Déjà Vu. Recorded in 2014, it features guest vocals from Kylie Minogue. The song was leaked on 16 January 2015 and subsequently released digitally on 20 January. "Right Here, Right Now" was produced by Moroder and Patrick Jordan-Patrikios, and written by Moroder, Patrick Jordan-Patrikios, Karen Poole and David Etherington. The song was mixed by Mitch McCarthy at Owl Foot Ranch in Los Angeles, California.

Announced in November, Déjà Vu features contributions from artists such as Kylie, Britney Spears, Sia, Charli XCX, Mikky Ekko, Foxes and Matthew Koma. Moroder's forthcoming album is his first studio release in over 30 years.

Reception

"Right Here, Right Now" has largely accrued positive reviews from critics. Billboard magazine described the "pulsating pop/dance track" as part of a "renaissance" of Giorgio Moroder. Many media outlets opined that the song was a strong collaboration between Moroder and Kylie. Nolan Freeney of Time magazine stated that the collaboration worked well, noting that the song sounded like could have appeared on Kylie's last studio album Kiss Me Once (2014). Freeney said: "Thanks the track's deep vocoder-like hiccups, it's clear Moroder has no problem updating his sound after all these decades." Stefan Kyriazis of the Daily Express described Minogue as "the perfect partner in crime" to Moroder.

Music Times stated "The tune shows Moroder's ability to mold a track on which he is collaborating with. 'Right Here, Right Now' features the best of both artists, with Moroder's oscillating deep bass and disco stylings under a soulful performance from Minogue that could have been delivered 40 years prior as she croons a stunning vocal performance from start to finish." Chris Coplan of Consequence of Sound described Kylie's vocals as "seductive". Coplan stated and the Moroder was expert at creating a song "around a vocalist and their persona", noting his past work with Donna Summer, and that "Right Here, Right Now" exhibited this with Kylie.
