Rhye’s sophomore full length BLOOD is expected to arrive on February 2nd, and it’s probably one of the most highly anticipated releases of this first quarter of the new year. We’ve already melted to songs like Taste and Count To Five, now the beloved Los Angeles based alt R&B and downtempo soul duo, consisting of Milosh and Robin Hannibal, have revealed a gorgeous new cut named Song For You via a lyric video. 

“‘Song for You’ was written for her. Listen to it in a way where it becomes your own,” shared RHYE frontman Milosh. “It holds a lot of emotion and occupies a special place both in my heart and as the heart of this new album.” Sigh your weekend away to this languorous wafting, sensual floating joint from the acclaimed duo. Purchase from iTunes, here. You can also pre-order BLOOD from iTunes, here.

Very little needs to be said when a new song surfaces from Rhye. We’re all much familiar with the Los Angeles based Canadian/Danish duo’s alt R&B,  chiffon funk, and downtempo soul. Milosh and Robin Hannibal are highly esteemed musicians, and anything they give us is gold, much less a plush grooving, sensuous wafting song Count To Five. The single even arrives with welcome news of a new Rhye album. Sophomore full length Blood is expected to arrive in a couple of months, and there’s no doubt that it’s going to be one of the most highly anticipated releases of early 2018. Count To Five is available now from iTunes, here.

Taste is the name of Rhye’s latest song, and I’d say it’s certainly a treat for the senses, as Rhye songs tend to be. The fleecy floating, delicately flittering downtempo soul and alt R&B tune will be on Milosh and Robin Hannibal’s sophomore album, due out early 2018 on Loma Vista Recordings. Tickets for Rhye’s 2018 tour just went on sale this morning, though unfortunately, no San Francisco date has been announced just yet. Taste is available from iTunes, here.

Brooklyn producer and songwriter Jonathan Dagan left an indelible mark on us as J.Views his 401 Days album last year, the culmination of a brilliant feat he called the DNA Project that brought all sorts of artists and musicians together over the course of two years to create incredible music. The Grammy nominations 401 Days received were well deserved, and just thinking about the release makes me want to go back and give it a hearty re-visit. A deluxe edition of 401 Days, entitled 401.1, will be out on October 5th. Among its new tracks is a transcendental remix of J.Views’ Don’t Pull Away, certainly one of the most smoothly seductive, lushly textured numbers from the album. Don’t Pull Away features Rhye’s Milosh on soft sensuous vocals, and now Los Angeles electro soul duo RKCB have given the track a sublimely billowing, wispy diaphanous edit that lulls us into a new plane of weightless euphoria. In other news, J.Views and Global Citizen have teamed up to create the #WeMove campaign empowering people to dance in public spaces around the world. The campaign will peak at the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park in two days. Learn more, here. Catch J.Views on tour this fall across the U.S. He’ll be stopping by the Independent in San Francisco on November 18th. More details can be found on Facebook, here.

I can’t seem to get enough of this silky disco groover today, no joke. I’ve listened to this fresh remix of Rhye’s Summer Days by Roosevelt countless times. Cool sliding funk meets dreamy electro on the flawless edit of Rhye’s recent single by the venerated German producer and songwriter. His plucky guitar and slick beats are the perfect accompaniment to Rhye’s buttery sensual vocals. We’re in for the hottest weekend we’ve ever had in the Bay this weekend, and this remix of Summer Days has come just at the right time for some welcome respite from that sticky heat. It even comes with an endearing and heartfelt music video. Roosevelt’s remix of Summer Days is out on iTunes, here.

I had the pleasure of catching Sylvan Esso live again when they played two sold out shows at the massive Fox Theater in Oakland last week, and I couldn’t help but continually glance at my fellow concert-goers with a gleeful smile as I watched them dance in joy to the North Carolina duo. Our love affair with Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn began when they made their debut four plus years ago, and it’s never dimmed in intensity. I was fortunate enough to catch their punchy, edgy electro pop and folktronica in the intimacy of San Francisco’s Bottom Of The Hill back in 2013, so the Fox was a much vindicating and rewarding experience. The pair also released a few remixes of Die Young, one of many stand out tracks off sophomore album What Now, last week. Much beloved alt R&B duo Rhye gave Die Young a stringy meditative edit that I find quite breathtaking. You can also stream a dancier, perkier remix of the song by Audion (aka Matthew Dear) below. It’s a crackling, skittering remix both electrifying and mesmeric.

We’ve been hungering for more sensually seductive music from Rhye since Milosh and Robin Hannibal made their long awaited return with two new songs last month. Though they’ve stayed silent since, the pair make a rare appearance on the latest single from Los Angeles based rising production talent King Henry, who last gave us a sublime collaboration with another favorite of ours, Ry X. On Moment, King Henry links up with Rhye for a diaphanous sojourn dripping with dusky introspection and cool sensuous, stringy percolating vibes. Moment is our latest taste from King Henry’s forthcoming EP, which is shaping up to be a treasure trove of star studded gems. The new single can be streamed and purchased, here.

I’m sure if you’re a big Rhye fan like me, you’ve been listening to their new music this whole past weekend. But just in case you missed it, the critically acclaimed duo of Milosh and Robin Hannibal have bestowed upon the world two new tunes, including this song, Please, which comes by way of a choreographed music video. Please is a light and delicate, soft and intimate R&B ballad. It’s just what we’ve been craving for from the pair these past four years. Ending the dry spell along with Please is Summer Days, the groovier cut of the two. You can preview the track via Soundcloud, here. Both gorgeous new tunes are available via iTunes, here.

We’re no strangers to High In The Woods. In fact, we fell for it HARD, nearly a year ago when mysterious musician johan dropped the dark slinking alt pop and experimental R&B pop song. High In The Woods, which involves Rhye’s Robin Hannibal on production, is a sexy smoldering, mischievously tip toeing spectacular that reminds me of Glass Animals and Miike Snow, but heavily steeped in future vibes. Well, ladies and gentlemen, a new version of High In The Woods has surfaced, and this time around, johan has hooked up with hip hop star Vic Mensa for a deeper rumbling, darker bristling take on the fine tune. Vic Mensa’s verse fits in seamlessly with the sinuous twisting, sly swerving aesthetic of High In The Woods. johan states: “In ‘High in the Woods’ I tried to capture a feeling of suburban mischief and adventure that I feel really nostalgic for, and still try to find in my life to this day. I’m super excited about Vic’s verse–he’s coming at the story from a very different place but still really connected with the overall message of it.” johan promises new music to come in the near future.

If there’s anything that can truly transport you to cloud nine, it’s a collaboration between Los Angeles based electronic genius Bonobo and fleecy luxuriant Rhye. No, you’re not dreaming. Rhye’s Milosh has really lent his satin chic vocals to a fresh new Bonobo track. Break Apart, our latest taster from Bonobo’s forthcoming album Migration, is a vaporous hovering, organic entrancing work of art. I find myself drifting into oblivion to the cottony sensuous tune. Break Apart pulls gently on my heart, digging tenderly into its core. Break Apart is the epitome of sublime, a dulcet melting, supple seductive enchanter. Bonobo’s sure to be divine new album Migration is due out on January 13th on Ninja Tune. Pre-order, here.
