Sexy doesn’t begin to explain it…
And I thought StoneBridge was just another annoying radio host on Sirius XM. I stand (firmly) corrected! He just dropped this new track featuring Crystal Waters 6 days ago on his radio show and I have to admit, I’m really feeling it. I mean I’m doing some serious desk raving at work. This is a hot ass track. I like that StoneBridge and Crystal Waters just met at a party and were like “you’re cool, let’s work together.” You would think there’s more too it than that, but water seeks it’s own level, and good people tend to find other good people naturally. In this case, these two good people gave birth to one sexy ass house track.
StoneBridge & Crystal Waters ‘BE KIND’
StoneBridge, the GRAMMY nominated Stockholm based DJ, artist and producer that has created chart topping remixes for everyone from Usher to Lenny Kravitz, appeared at festivals such as Dance Valley, Sensation White and Australia’s Summadayze, started 2014 in style.
