The latest release from deep house producer Henrik Schwarz stitches together sixteen live tracks in the studio.
Hailing from Bodensee in the south of Germany, Schwarz is a longtime veteran of the German deep house scene. Known for his productions and remixes, Schwarz also has an innovative approach to live laptopping: He loads up his computer with his own tracks as well as jazz, soul, house and techno from his record collection and reinterprets them on the fly.
His latest release, 'Live', promises to capture the method. The individual tracks were recorded in clubs around the globe, but then spliced together later in Schwarz's studio in Berlin. The album includes new versions of well known Schwarz tracks such as 'Leave My Head Alone, Brain', 'Imagination Limitation' and 'Walk Music' as well as tunes by Mandrill, Sun Ra and James Brown rearranged and reborn for the dancefloor.
