Kickin' In

Honey Soundsystem/Dark Entries
San Franciscan DJ collective, Honey Soundsystem, have come into possession of this previously unreleased gem from Hi-NRG pioneer, Patrick Cowley. Recorded around 1978, ‘Kickin’ In’ explores twelve minutes of rousing strings, a “Feel it kicking in” mantra and bubbling arpeggios — oddly reminiscent of Moroder’s ‘Chase’. Notably, two earlier productions accompany, both produced between 1975-77, featuring Cowley narrating erotic gay sex fantasies inspired by San Francisco’s leather bars, ‘back rooms’ and bathhouses of the time. Layers of guitar and synthesizer reveal a much sleazier side to Cowley’s adroit production.
