Weiss feat. Sharlene Hector – Lift Me Up

You may not know Sharlene Hector’s name, but I’m sure you’re familiar with her hits. Apart from fronting Basement Jaxx since 2001, she’s cooperated with a long and varied list of artists. Clean Bandit, Duke Dumont, Natasha Bedingfield, Nicole Scherzinger, Mark Ronson, Paloma Faith, Primal Scream, Royal Blood… Her voice attracted tens of millions of streaming listeners.

DJ/producer Richard Dinsdale, professionally known as Weiss, isn’t exactly an insignificant artist either. With his solo singles and collaborations with the likes of Becky Hill, he’s good for tens of millions of streams as well.

In other words, together, they’re a 2-piece super group. Their single Lift Me Up is ever as uplifting as you’d expect. It combines beats and a house piano straight from the early ‘90s with Hector’s stellar vocals. If you enjoyed Moby’s Go and Bassheads’ Is There Anybody Out There?, make sure to check this energetic track. It’s sure to evoke nostalgic feelings, and bring you back to the formative raving years.

Weiss says about working with Hector: “Sharlene’s been the voice behind so many of my favourite records over the last 20 years, but her name’s often been behind the scenes. I thought Lift Me Up was the perfect record to compliment her powerful and soulful voice. I’ve been a long-time fan, buzzing to have finally been able to work with her and feature her amazing talents on my production.”
