'Your Mind' or 'You're Mine' ? Listen to the rare and little known remix of Fingers Inc. - 'You're Mine' - especially the latter half of the mix where it starts to get all weird, wild, dark and tracky - and tell me it doesn't have a connection to this mix/track ;)

You can only find this special and rare remix on this under-the-radar UK various artists album: https://www.discogs.com/Various-Blow-The-House-Down/release/64762

Interesting, eh? Any thoughts?

Regarding the A side:

Owens gave Hardy “Your Mind,” a track built around an off-kilter drum machine, raucous bass, and Owens whispering, “Passion!” before repeating the title over and over, interspersed with occasional screams from Dickie Goodman’s novelty record, “Mr. Jaws.” “A lot of people thought that he did it, but I just did a bunch of overdubbing of different tracks one night like a little mad scientist... probably about ’82, ’83. I used to give Frankie Knuckles and him different things I’d do. Chopped up things.”

Robert Owens - Your Mind, creepy basement vibes. I never really knew this one before Sunil Sharpe dropped in a mix. Sunil, top dawg.

played this track once in the record shop of a friend. Not needed to say that people got uncomfortable and i was never again invited to drop a record even when all my friends played together. That's how good it is. And that's how a dedicated soulful house music record shop understands music.

i think that B side uses a reconstructed melody that can be heard at an earlier disco classic called 'The Music Got Me' by Visual

Since my fascination for Hardy's mixtapes, it was the 'Your Mind' track that became my nr 1 house record of all times, and the most desirable, due to the fact that it was never released on vinyl. I've also understood that this track is known as the 'holy grail' of house music according to music and house fans all over the world.
The track itself (the 2nd mix) is a very stripped down (minimal if you want)record containing elements of Novaga's Faces Drums and a repeating voice. In the midlle at it's climax there's a little Mirage-sound (if you pay notice) You have to hear it to believe that this is one of the most powerful, dark, atmospheric and insane track there's ever made.

And now it's available on vinyl
Unfortunately it's a bootleg and the sound is terrible (because of the orignal tapes). In fact the record is unplayable for the clubs. But maybe that is a good thing, because when it is played out everywhere, it looses some of it's magic.
Conclusion: brilliant music, bad medium.
