T.Williams "Heartbeat feat. Terri Walker (J.Bevin Remix)"
- Words: Patric Fallon
A part of the amorphous Deep Teknologi crew/label, J.Bevin (pictured above) steps up to the plate here on his remix of T.Williams' latest soulful bubbler with singer Terri Walker, "Heartbeat." Bevin leaves Walker's sultry vocal delivery more or less untouched, focusing instead on creating a completely fresh instrumental underneath her poignant croon. The vibe on Williams' tune is kicked up into more energetic territories by the fast-paced bounce of Bevin's kick-and-snare rhythms, enormous bass swells, and the warmth of his multi-layered synth melodies. Still, much like the original—which we recently previewed along with the Mosca Remix—this version is even-keeled, as Bevin retains the song's lovelorn energy by never overshadowing it with baroque production work.
