Three recently unearthed, previously unreleased tracks by one of the most revolutionary and influential people in the canon of disco music, San Francisco-based musician & producer Patrick Cowley. Mastered from the original quarter inch reel to reel tapes that had been buried in the Megatone Records vaults for more than 30 years.
Kickin’ In is an epic 12-minute journey through disco that Patrick recorded with Frank Loverde in 1978. The song encapsulates Cowley’s very own brand of Hi-NRG dance music, The San Francisco Sound. It was an „up" sound for the gay disco scene, music that would compliment and enhance all night dancing.
On the flip are two earlier songs produced between 1975-77, featuring Patrick narrating erotic gay sex fantasies inspired by San Francisco’s leather bars, back rooms and bathhouses. These songs show the sleazy side of Cowley’s slow burning, oozing electronic creations with layers and layers of synthesizer, guitar, drum machine and vocoder.
