Cultural Vibe - Mind Games vinyl front and back

Cultural Vibe was created by Winston Jones in the mid 80′s. Its track Ma Foom Bey [watch video below] was one of the biggest and most successful dance track back in 1986. To this day, Ma Foom Bey is still getting played and continuing to stand the test of time. And I do love that track. However, I also really do love Cultural Vibe’s other track Mind Games just as much. Mind Games was also released in 1986 but failed to see any success, overshadowed obscurely by Ma Foom Bey‘s ongoing success and popularity. Ma Foom Bey was purely a legit tribal/house track for the dance-floor. But Mind Games was a deep/house, electronic and emotional VOCAL dance track for the music-listener.  Fantastic rare gem with overall good & clean production with some raw dirt in there, although not as filthy as Ma Foom Bey.  Melodic bassline, synth stabs and echoey/delayed synth marimba-ish chops.  Slightly minimal but hardly crowded nor drowned with a lot of layers.  Solid beats from a Roland TR-707 drum machine.

On side-B of this 12″ particular single of mine is Mind Games (Zans Games) which was later re-titled to Mind Games (Dub Games), thus both of them being and sounding exactly the same as each other.
