Culture Beat

Though Culture Defeat remained active through the entire ’90s and in to the early 2000s, you can distill the group’s success right down to one song: the 1993 club smash “Mr. Vain.” And also other Euro-dance strikes from the first ’90s — Snap’s “Tempo Is really a Dancer,” 2 Unlimited’s “Incomparable This,” Dark Box’s “Hit It Up” — it required a while before “Mr. Vain” broke within the U.S. Nevertheless, when it do, it broke big. “Mr. Vain” was all of a sudden almost everywhere: pop radio, sports activities arenas, industrial danceclubs, dance compilations, etc. Nevertheless, Culture Defeat wasn’t in a position to capitalize around the achievement of “Mr. Vain,” as well as the group became relatively of the one-hit wonder, despite the fact that they continued launching music. In the long run, the group falls in to the same category as neglected popular dance works like Technotronic and C+C Music Manufacturer — ultimately throw-away acts using a fleeting a quarter-hour in the favorite club/dance spotlight.
