Rhye – Blood Remixed
Today Rhye announces the Blood Remixed album (due November 16th) and shares RY X’s remix of “Waste”. The 14-track album includes additional re-imaginations by Washed Out, Tensnake, Channel Tres, and more. Mike Milosh’s resilient yet purposefully understated take on R&B stretches beyond the confines of any genre with the remixes, giving listeners the opportunity to hear Blood from a new perspective.
Streaming today are RY X, Moon Boots, and Mano Le Tough’s remixes. RY X’s (who recently announced his forthcoming new album Unfurl) rework of “Waste” opens with haunting synths and creates a house atmosphere through subtle swells and syncopated rhythms. With the accompanying visual, Genevieve Medow Jenkins takes the directing helm and draws from her, Rhye, and RY X’s shared experience living in Berlin. It starts with a pair of nude figures in a spacious brownstone loft peering through the window in anticipation of what’s the come before transitioning into a magnetic after dark dance party inspired by the eclectic energy of Berlin’s nightclubs.
New York City’s Moon Boots opts to add a bit of his future disco sound to his take on “Taste,” giving the song an all-night club vibe. Underground favorite Mano Le Tough’s remix of “Taste” is the most experimental of the three, chopping Rhye’s smooth vocals and disseminating them across propulsive beats and discordant pockets of synth stabs.
