Rhye‘s original version of “Open” felt like a throbbing, aching wound, the mellow R&B vibes only adding to its sultry depth and delicacy. On this remix, Canadian all-star producer Ryan Hemsworth — who’s previously used his magic on Frank Ocean, Mikky Ekko, and Cat Power — does retain that palpable pain, but also throws in some heat to up the ante. The rework, though never too busy or bold, features more bounce, energy, and a myriad of electronic textures that sparkle just as much as they slither. Listen in below.

“Open” will be on Rhye’s debut album, Woman, due out March 5th through Loma Vista.
