Patrick Cowley – Menergy (Us 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 4th September 2012

BURNING THE GROUND ESXCLUSIVE 1981

Patrick Joseph Cowley (October 19, 1950 – November 12, 1982) was an American disco and Hi-NRG dance music composer and recording artist. He recorded in a style that has drawn comparisons[by whom?] to that of Giorgio Moroder and is often credited[by whom?] with pioneering electronic dance music.

“Menergy” is a 1981 dance single by producer Patrick Cowley. Along with the track “I Want to Take You Home”, “Menergy” spent two weeks atop the Billboard Dance/Disco chart in October and November 1981. It was Cowley’s most successful single of four Top 10 dance chart hits, all of which occurred within the span of fifteen months. As with Cowley’s other singles, “Menergy” did not place on any other chart. In 1984, a version of “Menergy” was released where Sylvester’s vocals were featured.

Patrick Cowley Featuring Sylvester – Do Ya Wanna Funk (US 12″)

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

REQUEST

Sylvester James (September 6, 1947 – December 16, 1988), better known as Sylvester, was an American disco and soul singer, and a gay drag performer. Sylvester was sometimes known as the “Queen of Disco,” although this moniker has also been bestowed on some of the women of the disco era (i.e. Gloria Gaynor, Donna Summer). His most significant works are the songs “You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)”, “Dance (Disco Heat)” (both 1978) and “Do You Wanna Funk” (1982).

Patrick Joseph Cowley (October 19, 1950 – November 12, 1982) was a disco and Hi-NRG dance music composer and recording artist. He recorded in a style that has drawn comparisons to that of Giorgio Moroder and is often credited with pioneering electronic dance music.

Patrick Cowley met San Francisco-based musician Sylvester in the late 1970s. Sylvester had asked Cowley to join his studio band after hearing some of his early synthesizer recordings. In 1982 “Do You Wanna Funk” was released on the Megatone Records label and quickly entered the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Chart peaking at #4. In the UK “Do You Wanna Funk” entered the top 40 peaking at #32.
