Originally released in 1975, Atmosphere Strut became an instant underground hit, cementing what was to become the signature sound for Patrick Adams — or as many have referred to him since — “the master of the masterpiece.” This futuristic and ethereal disco cut released on Peter Brown’s P&P label quickly became championed by Club DJ’s throughout the Northeast after legendary radio personality Frankie Crocker broke the record on the New York Airwaves. Although Patrick Adams has had a string of hits in his career, Atmosphere Strut remains a cult Classic for Disco aficionados. A mixture of modern sounds via the minimoog to an urban vibe at the time when parties happened in the streets of Harlem and parks in the Bronx. Add Sylvia Striplin’s melodic chorus and you have yourself the perfect Disco Song.
This Extended Disco-Mix from 1979 (On Queen Constance) retains all the qualities that made Atmosphere Strut a classic, but optimizes it for the Club. More percussions and an uptempo beat to make you fly away from the streets and straight into the Disco.
