German DJ and producer Henrik Shwarz has remixed a track titled âWicked Streetsâ by Belgian pop multi-instrumentalist J. Bernardt by flipping the emotionally charged anthem into a steady and enveloping house tune.
With his career mainly focused on his Balthazar project, J. Bernardt has since branched out to produce music cut from a different cloth. His new album, titled that Running Days, covers a spectrum R&B, soul and hip-hop in a similar fashion to that DâAngelo or Gorillaz. In a press release he shared a bit about what inspired the new material: âI still love the old-school â60s sound we created in the bandâbut for this project I began to think about what Iâd play at a house partyâ.
With a steady bass riff Henrik Shwarzâs remix leads in using a piano melody to highlight J. Bernardtâs raw vocals, building the track into a mesmerizing house ballad. Itâs a refreshing transformation from the respected producer.
J. Bernardtâs debut album âRunning Daysâ is out now Play It Again Sam.
