the piano chords are the same chords played slightly differently from those in The Believers Track "Who dares to believe in me? so its not really a sample! i think the correct terminology would be to say that the chords are "covering" the chords in the original... rather than sampling! if you look up "Cover Version" on wikipedia, it says: "a cover is a new performance or recording of a previously recorded, commercially released song by someone other than the original artist or composer" but yes, at the end of it all, its just a politically correct way of saying they stole it ;) hah!

Shindig was a great label while it was around and this was their big crossover track "I Believe", which is a simple vocal track with a monster piano rift that simply blew the roof off ! Huge tune that built in the clubs and crossed over into the charts. This 12" has the original versions which are slightly less full on than the later releases.
But its well worth checking "Here We Go" too on this 12" as its really nice cheeky sampled house number, with it again simple "Here We Go ahh hha " and Todd Terry sampled loops.
Really worth checking the Shindig releases there's some great house tracks on this label.

One of the best UK house records of the 1990's decade by a mile.

Another ave'in it 1994 house tune. No vocal chorus, just a jagged electronic piano riff, with plucky vocal stabs.
It a full on uplifting summer anthem, with a striking piano riff at its heart. First heard it on BPM (UK Channel 4) dance show in 1994.
