[PREMIERE-MP3] Rhye – “Open” (Wiley Webb Remix)

[soundcloud id=’136822765′]

Wiley Webb flips things on their head. His remix of Katy Perry’s “Roar” was fearless, turning the formulaic chart topper into a spastic body mover that has been in every DJ set I’ve played all year. Rhye’s 2012 slow burner “Open” is a bit more sacred than “Roar” but Wiley handled it beautifully, adding just enough glitch and haunting groove to give the song a fresh dimension. Wiley calls this remix “even slower, even more sensual, darker, sexier, with more tease, more quiet, more moments of silence, more breath, more sighs, eyes closed, curves, shadows, touch.” I couldn’t agree more.

The Happy Birthday TBE Album – With exclusive covers and remixes from Noah Hyde, Pr0files, Lincoln Jesser, Parade of Lights and more…

This is just a teaser to get you all as excited as I am. To celebrate the 5th birthday of The Burning Ear I’m putting together an album of exclusive remixes of covers of the best TBE jams of the past 5 years. Contributing artists like Pr0files, Noah Hyde, Lincoln Jesser, Y Luv, Wiley Webb, Memoryy, Germany Germany, and more will be remixing or covering songs by Miike Snow, Twin Shadow, Scavenger Hunt, Yeasayer, Phosphorescent, Rhye, Frank Ocean, and more.

The list goes one and makes my heart skip a beat every time I read it. And dont even get me started on heart skips when I LISTEN to these jams. Holy cow. You guys are in for a treat.

AND THEN, there is the epic album artwork above created by the amazing Meghan Ellie Smith. I’m basically a mess of excitement over here.

Stay tuned. The project rolls out next week….

Katy Perry - Roar (Wiley Webb Remix)

Whether you love or hate the original this big slapping bass remix is damn fresh jam. Wiley Webb knows just how to dial back the pop gloss and scuff up the edges to make it palatable for us non-tweens. Get dirty!
