SUNDAY FUNDAY: Crystal Waters ft Sted-E and Hybrid Heights - Believe - [418 MUSIC]
One of the many things that we love about Miss Crystal Waters is that she constantly evolves and changes with the times. Her music is always current because she works with a variety of producers, writing and singing toplines for whatever sounds are big in the clubs. Ye, you always know when it is Crystal singing, not only for her unique and beloved voice but also for her penchant for catchy hooks that get stuck in your head. Following up the #1 Club Chart hit “Synergy,” Crystal reunites with the lovable duo Sted-e and Hybrid Heights for “Believe,” a rework of Bizarre Inc’s “I’m Gonna Get You.” Following the Cheat Codes/Spinnin meme, they keep the chorus and add a new verse. What makes this special is her additional b-line to the chorus which modernizes it in a perfect 2016 way. Crystal’s lyrics make a complete vocal pop song of what was pretty much a three-line track. Though this same song was redone in similar fashion by Dave Audé and Jessica Sutta last year, “Believe” has a completely different and a more classic piano house sound. While the original version sounds brilliant on the dance floor (the kids were screaming for it on first play list night), a feisty set of remixes expand the vibes. Stonebridge amps up the energy yet keeps the original piano hook as the focus. Tony Moran injects it with a tribal vibe while Kilo Shuhaibar takes it deeper. “Believe” is a perfect Sunday Funday song, though the trainspotter in me keeps trying to clock what that intro piano hook is reminding of. It’s not “Big Love” or “Strings of Life,” but another '90s UK piano house track. Any ideas?
