Cowley was instrumental in early dance music, particularly the post-disco and Hi-NRG world, and his influence looms large even now, decades on. He explored uncharted waters with his synthesizer sounds and found fame as a writer, producer, and musician that resonates today.

There are few better people to remix him than London-based Hifi Sean, who once wrote a song for Prince, has released chart-topping album "FT" with notable names like Yoko Ono, Bootsy Collins, and Alan Vega, and has had support from the likes of The Blessed Madonna while amassing over six million streams. He is a driving force in the contemporary underground and shows his skills again here as he tackles the Cowley classic, "Primitive World."

The Hifi Sean Mix opener is a steamy post-disco cut with tribal vocal chants and fat basslines. Plenty of percussion and zippy synth lines bring wild energy and ensure maximum dance floor impact. The Hifi Sean Dub strips away the vocal and allows the drums and bass more room to make their mark as wispy synths bring mystic charm. The original version is still an essential and sweat-inducing cocktail of spaced-out synths, eerie melodies, organic percussion, and bustling rhythms. An acapella and Bonus Beats mix close out this comprehensive package in style.
