HIFI SEAN Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 22 January 2017, HiFi Sean

For the past few months HiFi Sean has been attracting considerable interest among some of the world’s most eminent blogs, thanks to his formidable album Hifi Sean – Ft. The self-released collection of dance tracks features collaborations with an extensive range of guest vocalists including Bootsy Collins, the B52’s Fred Schneider, Yoko Ono and none other than fellow Bellshill boy, Norman Blake.

Hifi Sean is the musical reincarnation of Sean Dickson, frontman with eighties indie legends, the Soup Dragons, who scored a worldwide hit with a cover of The Rolling Stones’ song I’m Free. Now a successful DJ and producer, his latest single from the album,
Testify, features guest vocals by Crystal Waters, who had a smash with Gypsy Woman around the same time Sean was riding high with I’m Free. Already Top 40 in the iTunes dance chart, if there is any justice in the pop world, expect it to become a fully-fledged hit within weeks.
