RÜFÜS DU SOL release two-part remix album, ‘SOLACE REMIXED’

This post was originally published on this site

RÜFÜS DU SOL release two-part remix album, ‘SOLACE REMIXED’RUFUS PressShot LeFawnhawk 1

In the context of SOLACE REMIXED, the expression “the more the merrier” is certainly apt. The three-part effort consolidates remixes of SOLACE album inclusions from 17 different artists, including Audiofly, Icarus, Hot Since 82, Cassian, Justin Martin, and Will Clarke, among others. A cohesive collection of alternative takes, SOLACE REMIXED duplicates the original track list of SOLACE across two separate remix albums. Altogether, the format brings listeners two different remixes of each song that originally appeared on SOLACE.  

A pensive and lyrically vulnerable contemplation about a love that at times seems requited, and at other junctures, strained, to say the least, SOLACE foreground three distinguishing elements of RÜFÜS DU SOL’s style: multi-dimensional instrumental work, trance-inducing melodies, and the velvety texture of lead singer Tyrone Lindqvist’s vocals.

RÜFÜS DU SOL’s experimentation with indie-electronic technics on the LP led to standout soundscapes that were distinctive on account of their depth, and infallible in their ability to ensnare listeners. Now, thanks to the diverse visions of SOLACE REMIXED‘s contributing artists, listeners can experience the arresting artistry of SOLACE anew.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 107

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.

Listen in playlist format here


Goldroom is less than two months away from the arrival of his new LP, Plunge/Surface, and continues to share snippets of what fans can expect from the two-part album. The latest of these is “Running Wild” with former collaborator Nikki Segal. This relaxed piece ushers the autumn season in with ease.

RÜFÜS DU SOL blessed their fans with a new set of remixes for Solace on Sept. 6, sharing among them Gerd Janson‘s vocoder mix. The German producer brings a sparkling, bright new atmosphere to “Treat You Better,” putting a twist on the original’s vocals by incorporating a vocoder.

Fox Stevenson has been hard at work on his live show, a documentary, and his debut album, so it’s crazy to see the amount of material he’s been releasing. The latest in a string of releases is “Dreamland,” a vocal-powered drum ‘n’ bass-but-otherwise-hard-to-define song. He calls it “maybe [his] favourite song [he’s] ever made,” and it’s easy to see why.

deadmau5 and Kaskade‘s iconic “I Remember” is chillingly haunting in its original format, so when BLOODTONE got his hands on it, he somehow found a way to make it even more so. He’s given it what he calls “a dark warehouse feel” and plunged it to the depths of the shadows in a thrilling way.

The opening notes of RL Grime‘s “Core” are undeniably some of the most recognizable in today’s EDM scene. The 2014 tune has received a frantic drum ‘n’ bass facelift from Flite, and it’s nearly three minutes of pure energy. It’ll make your head spin—but in the best possible way.

It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday. With the overwhelming amount of tunes hitting the airwaves today, Dancing Astronaut has you covered with the latest edition of The Hot 25.

In perhaps one of the biggest collaborations to hit the airwaves on Sept. 6, The Bloody Beetroots and ZHU have teamed up for “Zoning.” RÜFÜS DU SOL have dropped off a new set of remixes for Solace, including an irresistibly groovy one by Hot Since 82. Grimes and i_o unexpectedly deliver “Violence,” and M83 returns with the dreamy “Temple of Sorrow.” Audien and Nevve bring blissful energy to “Buzzing,” and Cashmere Cat reveals “FOR YOUR EYES ONLY.” Arty is on a journey to “Find You” in his latest, and Walker & Royce team up with VNSSA for “Rave Grave.” KOAN Sound’s new EP lands pm Sept. 6, featuring sounds like “Vibrant,” and Claude VonStroke unleashes a new original, “Slink.” Sullivan King has released a two-track EP, and Armin van Buuren and David Hodges link for “Waking Up With You.” Fox Stevenson finally uncovers “Dreamland,” and 3LAU remixes San Holo’s “Lost Lately.”

As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed this NMF.

RÜFÜS DU SOL deliver 60 minutes of discerning cuts in new mix [Stream]RUFUS PressShot LeFawnhawk 1

Those who’ve had 2018’s SOLACE on heavy rotation have reason to rejoice: fresh RÜFÜS DU SOL material is upon us. The acclaimed Australian outfit brings listeners a full hour of cerebral house cuts in a brand new mix produced exclusively for the triple j Mix Up series. RÜFÜS DU SOL issue a memorable nod to SOLACE’s “Treat You Better” with Purple Disco Machine’s remix of the track, kicking the hour in gear.

The electronic trio highlight an array of productions from fellow melodic mavens. Original productions from Olivier Giacomotto, Lunar Plane, and KH figure in the mix, as do a myriad of different remixes, like Kynan Cosma’s take on Carlo Whale’s “Alnitak,” and Rigopolar’s rework of Futuristant’s “The Future Dance.” RÜFÜS DU SOL lend a sense of mystique to the mix with the inclusion of a new ID towards the end of the effort. Characteristically mellifluous, the mix both begins and closes with SOLACE track listings: Yotto’s “Dawn” revamp of RÜFÜS DU SOL’s “Underwater” provides a polished finale.

Listen to the mix here.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 93

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.

Listen in playlist format here.


Swedish producer F.O.O.L has a flair for the dramatic. This is impeccably evidenced in each piece of music he creates, and his latest is no exception. His remix of Magic Sword’s “Legend of the Keeper” is a dark, shadow-infested synthwave rendition, using powerful retro synths to drive home an eerie theme. A strong beat makes up the backbone of F.O.O.L’s remix, making this an enticing song for dance music lovers of all persuasions.

The last New Music Friday of May brings with it the arrival of SNBRN highly anticipated Solé LP. Spanning 10 tracks, including previously released singles like “Feel My Love” and “Never Let You Go,” the LA-based producer brings his own brand of flaming-hot house to tracks like “Bailas Conmigo.” “I’m so humbled to share Solé with the people who made it what it is!” the producer said in a release. “My friends, family and fans are all behind this, and it’s been an amazing year preparing everything to share with everyone.”

A few weeks ago, StayLoose (formerly known as StéLouse) reissued a 2014 EP, The City, in a deluxe format that included a rework of “Sixteen,” now titled “Illusions (Sixteen).” He’s added talented vocalist Fatherdude into the mix, bringing a whole new layer to the tune. The song maintains the ’80s elements it initially possessed but is given an even more pop-oriented vibe with the addition of the spirited vocals. It’s ridiculously catchy, and it’s fun to hear how it’s evolved over the years.

After few months after the release of his Anywhere But Here EP, Mielo has tapped Ryan Collins to remix standout single “ILY” with Sarah De Warren. The original was a somewhat somber affair, lush with moody melodies and sultry vocals. Collins has decided to revamp the tone entirely, picking up the pace from start and integrating a pounding house beat early on. This upbeat rendition gives listeners a fresh new way to absorb the intricacies of Mielo’s original, along with Collins’ added elements.

RÜFÜS DU SOL are continuing to celebrate the success of their Solace LP, gradually releasing several volumes of remixes for the October 2018 album. They’re now on volume six, which features three remixes of “Underwater,” two of which are from Anjunadeep’s Yotto. Yotto offers up both a “dusk” and “dawn” remix of the iconic song. The melancholy tune is taken a step deeper by the talented Finnish producer, who’s leaned fully into the moody undercurrents of the song.
