The man behind our favourite FACT mix of 2012 takes on doe-eyed duo Rhye.
Along with Inc., Rhye are making the contemporary case for the slow jam, and, in the case of calling card ‘Open’, making it very well indeed. Following on from Maurice Fulton’s take on ‘The Fall’, the industrious Ryan Hemsworth has taken on Rhye’s best heartstring-tugger. It’s not an easy track to remix – the original is so perfectly poised that any edit is in real danger of upsetting the equilibrium – but Hemsworth’s simmering, Shlohmo-style edit is faithful without being slavish.
Rhye’s debut LP Woman drops on March 4.
