Producer Marius Hösturz beautifully slows down the tempo of Rihanna‘s latest single “Stay” and turns it into an atmospheric swirl of chilled, deep house music.
All along it was a fever
A cold sweat hot-headed believer
I threw my hands in the air
I said, show me something
He said, if you dare come a little closer

British trip hop pioneer Tricky will soon be releasing his upcoming tenth studio album “False Idols” scheduled to be released May 28th, marking the first release on his own False Idols label. Tricky also returns after a three-year break with much anticipated U.S. tour dates.
“I was lost for ages. I was trying to prove something to people, trying to do something to please other people and also myself at the same time, which is never going to work. To be honest with you, I’ve been floating around since Chris Blackwell and Island. My last two albums, I thought they were good, but I realize now they weren’t. This album is about me finding myself again. I’ll stand behind every track. I don’t care whether people like it. I’m doing what I want to do, which is what I did with my first record. That’s what made me who I was in the beginning. If people don’t like it, it don’t matter to me because I’m back where I was.” – Tricky (Adrian Thaws)

Rhye is classically trained musicians Mike Milosh and Robin Hannibal. Together the two gentlemen met in Denmark while working with the Copenhagen-based group Quadron. After spending a small amount of time together, they became mutually appreciative of each others music. When the sounds of Rhye initially was discovered within the depths of the internet, the male duo remained a mystery, and some mistook the soft androgenous vocals of Mike Milosh as a woman similar in the tones of Sade. Their beautiful songs quickly garnered attention while videos were created to erotically display the sensuality of the music. Rhye’s debut album “Woman” was released in March 2013, and truly signifies the femininity and romantic notion of love in every hypnotic degree.
Listen: Rhye – Open (Woman, 2013)
Bonus: Enjoy these beautiful remixes of Rhye created by Sohn, and Ryan Hemsworth.
