S’Express – Mantra For A State Of Mind (Elevation Mix parts 1 & 2) [1989]

S-Express, deservedly huge, pumped this masterpiece out during the summer of 1989, riding the wave of dance music that had begun to flood the charts. Mark Moore showing he was one of the very best in the business, with complex synth arrangements, a driving percussion and incredible vocals. One of the first tracks I ever purchased, I loved it then, I love it now. Its farkin’ incredible.

From Discogs
Commercially the end of S’Express in the UK with this release (a paltry no 22 in the charts) which is a shame as this is a fine bit of house but i think after the wonderful fluff that was Theme From,Superfly Guy and Hey Music Lover the public werent ready for a serious slab of thought provoking dance. A long track which in the first half has a wonderful heartfelt vocal and an ethereal backing track.
