Rhye: The Fall (Maurice Fulton Remix)

For those unfamiliar with the original single by the really rather good Rhye, honeyed, cordial vocals fuse with sparkling, emotive piano, with lyrics like “Make love to me/One more time/Before you go away,” framing the record’s sweet pop sensibility. On this remix, disco-house master Maurice Fulton straps a jittering, electro-funk bassline to isolated vocal fragments, simultaneously preserving the beauty and soul of the original, while reimagining it within a dancier context. One of the best remixes of the year so far.
