Freemasons feat. Wynter Gordon
This one was released in August but still hasn’t gotten the DJ response it deserves. Probably my favorite track of the entire year, “Believer” is that track that represents the remedy to the lackluster music that’s been plaguing clubs for a while now. In the late ‘90s and early ‘00s, there were hundreds of quality club tracks that combined three necessities: beautiful vocals, enchanting melody, and thoughtful lyrics. Artists like Abigail, Amber and Erin Hamilton made a killing with that combo. But in the last few years, that magic mix has fallen apart, and we’re usually left with, at best, two out of three. When I first heard “Believer,” I thought, “This is what we’ve been missing, and why did it take so long for someone to bring it back?” Wynter Gordon made the crossover from urban to dance with her Guetta-produced “Dirty Talk” earlier in the year. Now, alongside dance royalty Freemasons, she’s found a true home. No remixes necessary, in its original format “Believer” is vocal, blissful perfection and makes all nine minutes feel like not nearly enough. Don’t miss this one.
I can’t agree more…this song is for sure on my playlist. I also agree that the music from 99 to 02 was the best music ever and rarely we get to enjoy thoughtful, melodic and catchy music today…remember not only Abigail but also Grace, Veronica, Melanie C, Sureal and Agnelli & Nelson…one current anthem that mind join this group is Kimberly Davis- Twist of Love (Oxford Hustlers Vocal Mix)...check it out
