"Believe In Me" and the whole Perfecto Sound that Quivver is often involved with are the club songs that convinced me that dance music --- I mean music intended for the clubs --- was an art form of its own. I hate to admit it, but before that I was a hardcore R&B Junkie (did I just channel Janet?) and anything that came out of the clubs for the clubs was to me just repetitious metallic sounding seven minute songs with white girls on the vocals trying to be black... and failing.

This song and that whole mid 90’s house/progressive house sound proved to me that there was soul in styles of music outside of R&B and hip-hop. And the more I listened to club music, the more of that soul I found.... and even more bizarre was that a lot of the DJ's spinning and mixing this amazing ‘undiscovered music’(to me) were... gasp!... white guys like me.

Oakenfold, Quivver, Kristine W, Grace, EBTG, the list goes on --- all created songs of such depth and beauty that allowed me to have an epiphany. I realized that --- after spending all my life as a very vocal proponent of equality between the races; between man and woman (and those making the switch in either direction); between every religion or one’s lack thereof; between gays, lesbians, bisexuals and everyone else somewhere on the line; between the old and the young; between every single one of us --- that here I was being prejudiced. Prejudiced against a form of music because of my misconceptions about club music in general... and ultimately all I was doing was denying myself the enjoyment of experiencing true soul music where you find it – everywhere.

Hell, after that realization, I even bought a couple of Garth Brooks records: he may get filed under country but his voice belts out the sounds of his soul deep within, just as purely as Kristine W or Quivver or Oakenfold or even Aretha.

To paraphrase Blank & Jones… thank you "DJ's, fans & freaks" for opening up my eyes… by way of my ears. Much love. =)

I love early Quivver (and Tilt) tunes! Bright, over-the-top synth arpeggios coupled with thick, chunky basslines and Quivver's own upbeat vocals make for perfect mid-90's progressive house work-outs. "Believe In Me" was an Oakenfold favorite and it's easy to see why. The SPS remix isn’t nearly as fun, though the Phar Out Mix is an interesting breakbeat version take, but neither beats the excellent original mix.
