Joe Hertz – Simple (featuring Jones)
Joe Hertz is a South London (Brixton) based producer who fell in love with music production at an early age. His early influences based around drum & bass raves and the music in video games, mentioning J Dilla and Timbaland as some of his favorite producers at the time. We found Joe Hertz climbing the popular charts on Hypem.
Yesterday, Joe Hertz released a new track with vocalist Jones on a smooth electronic R&B single, Single. We’ve featured remixes using Jones’ vocals previously on rBeatz, and her refreshing soul vocals are primed for R&B pop with dynamic percussive elements. She’s been able to find great producers who really capture her vocals well with the production, and Joe Hertz is no different.
The song has a bit of a faster pace than what we’re used to from Jones; however, Joe’s dynamic percussive and ambient elements really create a space for Jones’ vocals to come through. Hertz mentioned in an interview with Wonderland Magazine that his dream artist to work with would be Erykah Badu. I feel they would make a great collaboration of R&B, Soul, and Electronic music. Jones DOES give that smoky Erykah Badu vibe – just saying. Jones and Joe make a good team.
A synthscape of soul and R&B!
