Last week we were very excited to share with you all this incredible record from Hifi Sean featuring the one and only Crystal Waters called ‘Testify’. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face, here’s how we announced that we’d signed it to Defected on our Facebook...

Part gospel anthem, part joyful house workout, ‘Testify’ is one of those once-in-a-blue-moon moments, a perfectly formed song with a heart that reaches out to move you. House icon Crystal Waters’ voice is resplendent and Sean’s production ties together elements of gospel, soul and house for a truly special record with an undeniably catchy chorus that gets better with every listen.

Originally released in November 2016 on Sean’s own imprint Plastique Recordings, ‘Testify’ has grown and hooked listeners organically, making the playlist at BBC Radio 2 and taking on a life of its own. Keen to take ‘Testify’ to the world while maintaining a DIY, independent edge, Sean has now signed it over to Defected. We are thrilled to be able to offer the record the kind of spotlight it deserves.   

Previously the lead singer with both The Soup Dragons and The High Fidelity, Sean Dickson has had a thirty-year-long career in music. Get to know him HERE, courtesy of Ransom Note.
