An important figure both within the gay community and fast growing electronic music scene in the 70s and early 80s, Patrick Cowley was known for the otherworldly melodies he produced using electronic synthesisers. His dubbed out rendition of Sylvester’s disco classic is utterly masterful. It is easy to forget that the birth of dub techno was still a long, long way away at the time of the song’s production. Yet Cowley manages to effortlessly sew together the cosmic disco style that he was and still is famous for with Jamaican reggae style production. The chugging kick provides an undeniable groove and characteristically melodramatic synths convey the truly melancholic yet hopeful mood of the gay community at the time. It is truly a tragedy that such a talented musician passed away at such an early age.
