Funky Disco Tracks of Cloud One (LP)
“I was trying to get the most out of the instrument. I was experimenting.” - Patrick Adams
Official Reissue of the Rare Sophomore LP by Cloud One
Cloud One was always a studio outlet for Patrick Adams to experiment. Even after the success of Atmosphere Strut, Adams continued to experiment with synthesizers (in particular the minimoog) to make this his signature sound or ‘voice’ as he called it. An indeed his usage of the synth was completely different from some of his contemporaries. With titles like Jump, Jump, Jump, Funky Track, Stomp Your Feet and Dance or Music Funk, it was clear the spirit of this music was in Harlem. It’s no surprise Adams felt at home in the many P&P subsidiaries. “P&P became this place where artists could be free, as opposed to an Atlantic Records or a Columbia Records, where everything is high spit and polished...We never told anybody on P&P what they could or couldn’t do, what they should or shouldn’t do. It was like, ‘Go for it, if you want to bang pots and pans together, that’s your sound.” And what a Funky Sound it was.
