Rhye shares reworks by Tensnake, Jacques Greene, Poolside, Mansionair and Jeff Samuel from their forthcoming Blood Remixed album (due November 16th). The accompanying visuals for these re-imaginations of songs from their sophomore album continue the late night Berlin club narrative established by RY X’s “Waste” last month.
Drawing from Rhye and creative partner Genevieve Medow Jenkins’ shared experience living in Berlin and conceptualized / directed by Jenkins, the remix visuals are expressions in movement that mimic the sound and feeling of each track. Tensnake’s “Count To Five” follows the dancer Bounce (the girl with the blue hair) and depicts her interactions with other characters. Poolside’s “Feel Your Weight” visual cuts to two male dancers at the rave and intermixes solo and interactive dances.
The 14-track Blood Remixed 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.
Today, London Grammar announced the release of a second remix EP for their critically acclaimed debut album “If You Wait”. The exclusive new EP features a sophisticated set of remixes by celebrated producer/DJ’s such as Claude Von Stroke (the man behind of one America’s most innovative House labels Dirtybird Records), Zero 7, and UNKLE, as well as some of this year’s most hyped beatmakers Evian Christ, Tensnake and Tourist, all of whom have put their unique trademark twist on the band’s original tracks. Listen closely to the Zero 7 mix for a graceful vocal cameo by their long time collaborator and friend, renowned Australian artist Sia.
