Review

Lost for 30 years - Unreleased masterpieces by disco legend Patrick Cowley and Indoor Life singer Jorge Socarras - remixed by Morgan Geist (Metro Area) & KiNK (Rush Hour)! First single from the forthcoming album “Catholic” by Patrick Cowley & Jorge Socarras. “Soon” is a dark proto-techno track with hypnotic lyrics and warped synths, while “Robot Children” builds on a rigid sequencer bassline and futuristic sounddesign. These masterpieces were lost for 30 years and get released for the very first time! The first remix comes from no one less than Metro Area’s Morgan Geist - and it’s arguably one of his best mixes to date. Responsible for Environ’s Unclassics series, he certainly was the first call for the job. His rework transforms Cowley’s trademark production sound into 2009, respectful for authenticity and forward thinking at the same time. Rush Hour’s KiNK has turned heads with his incredible production skills and live appearances. His remix of “Soon", derived from the original’s drum machine sounds, catapults the track to the future. Bass heavy with a rugged beat, this is one to cross boundaries from techno to dubstep to experimental!

AME (Innervisions): “fantastic record!”

DJ Bobby Viteritti: “A short story of me and Patrick: I remember trying to break Patrick into new wave. He was afraid of it, that is when we did the remix of Funkytown which I asked him to help me with. Also "Call Me" by Blondie and White Wedding was out. He came to my club "Trocadero Transfer", and listened up in the balcony and watched the dancefloor as I weaved in and out of Disco with it. He then realized it was a great direction and very much needed sound at the time. A lot of things happened after that with Patrick's life and music. I also had the honor of mixing Patricks Album on Fusion Records. Patrick is the sound of San Francisco!”

Gerd Janson (Running Back): “I take off my hat for such a labor of love and respectful, inspiring remixes. Go!”

Michael Mayer (Kompakt): “Sowohl "Soon" als auch "Robot Children" und der KiNK Remix haben mir gerade die Schuhe ausgezogen. Unglaublich visionäre Musik, die nichts an Modernität eingebüsst hat. What a catch! Glückwunsch! ”

Oliver Ho: “I've been looking forward to hearing this for a while, and it's worth the wait. The music from this era has a beautiful experimental and soulful sound to it, people's individual characters come through so much. I love the sparse quality of the tracks, and the subtle vocals. This stuff is very relevant now, especially with the way techno, rock and disco are mixing together. 5 out of 5, 10 out of 10, 100 out of 100 !! ”

Paul Frick (Kalk Pets): “Toll, was ihr da ausgegraben habt! Am besten gefällt es mir in KiNKs Mix, der ist wirklich hypnotisch und facettenreich. ”

Quarion (Drumpoet Community): “The KiNK remix is out of this world! I will play & looking forward to see how people will react to this one! ”

Surgeon (Counterbalance): “As a Patrick Cowley fan it's a great pleasure to hear these unreleased gems. Both remixes are great too, in different ways. Looking forward to playing them in my sets. ”

Trevor Jackson: “The original is a gem, even better than I expected (can't wait to hear the album). The KiNK mix is very very sick indeed, serious next level shit. Loving it! ”
