Patrick Cowley
Afternooners

Sex! Now that I have your attention: porn! Wait. Patrick Cowley is the electronic artist responsible for a series of cult gay porn soundtracks; Afternooners is the final volume to be released in an archival series of these works. Associated with creating his own dance sound based on trying to transpose other genres for synth, his music retains a unique sound faraway from the typical cry of vintage. This one's arguably the most experimental in its series.

Patrick Cowley

Patrick Cowley & Candida Royalle
Candida Cosmica

Patrick Cowley is often uttered in the same breath as Giorgio Moroder as being a pioneer of electronic dance music, and is probably most known for being a leading producer of the “Hi-NRG” sound. Candida Cosmica is a much more minimal affair, a collaboration with his roommate of the time Candida Royalle, her experimental vocals interweaved with synthesizers, handbuilt machines and percussion. Recorded 1973-75.
