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.
  • Vinyl Double LP (DE185LP)

Patrick Cowley
School Daze

A unique compilation of works from the late electronic pioneer Patrick Cowley. School Daze features over eighty minutes of music from two gay porn films 'Muscle Up' and 'School Daze'. From Moroder-esque synths to musique concrete it’s a remarkable testament to his compositional skill and wide-ranging ambitions. Out on CD and vinyl double LP from Dark Entries.

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.
  • Vinyl 12" (DE140)

Patrick Cowley
Kickin' In

To have heard Kickin’ In before, you would have had to frequent the gay clubs of San Francisco in the 1970’s, where this gorgeous disco track was originally played out. This 12” pressing on Honey Soundsystem is the first release the track has seen: it is backed by two of Patrick Cowley’s electronic gay-sex-fantasies pop numbers.

Patrick Cowley
Muscle Up

Check this out friends: Muscle Up is a collection of Patrick Cowley’s soundtracks to gay porn films. The tracks, crafted out of synths and hand-built equipment, are at once sleazy and remarkably experimental, sliding slickly between ambience and funk. Double LP packaged with sexy posters on Dark Entries / Honey Soundsystem.

Patrick Cowley & Jorge Socarras
Catholic

Super modern 70's angular electronic art pop from Patrick Cowley & Jorge Socarras. Catholic straddles an array of sounds, from up front punk, to roomy ambience and through to avant-electro sounds. Their influences are evident but they manage to carve out a unique racket of their own. Somewhere between The Ramones, Roxy Music, Edwyn Collins and robot-space-funk. Out on double vinyl LP on Dark Entries.
