Vocal prodigy Maggie Szabo and EDM savant Oli Harper work together to deliver a transcendent rendition of Cher’s “Believe.”
In this three-minute ode, the uplifting build begins with Maggie’s angelic vocals, followed by the iconic plucks from Cher’s “Believe”. In the end, a classic house drop concludes the track. Having stripped away the infamous auto-tune vocals of the original, this rendition emits a tsunami of energy, grace, and pop sensibility.

With a string of releases on disco:wax, One Seven Music, LoudKult, Enhanced, Gemstone & Proximity, Oli produces music with an instantly recognizable, infectious dance sound.

Both the artists have truly put themselves into the track. The perfect combination of strong vocals and mesmerising electronic production sets “Believe” apart as a hit of the year 2022.
