Originally a duo shrouded in mystery and intrigue, Rhye has since shifted and revealed itself as a project led by Los Angeles-based Canadian singer/songwriter Mike Milosh. Following their critically-acclaimed and popularly-adored debut album Woman in 2013, Rhye just returned with their highly-anticipated sophomore album Blood at the beginning of this month, adding another wonderful and seductive entry of R&B-tinged electro-pop into his catalog. For his Midnight in a Perfect World mix, Rhye has pieced together a special set of love songs in celebration of Valentine’s Day. Featuring both iconic love songs and contemporary romantic jams, this is a supremely dreamy and beautiful sonic journey, driven by the emotional power of love.
