In celebration of RÜFÜS DU SOL’s universally acclaimed third studio album, SOLACE, comes the announcement today of a reimagined 18-track remix album, SOLACE REMIXED – out September 6th on Rose Avenue / Reprise Records. The collection features a sonically diverse amalgamation of reworks from some of electronic music’s most influential figures including Audiofly, Adam Port, Edu Imbernon, and Hot Since 82. The package reimagines the story of SOLACE into club-ready portraits spanning from brooding techno to cerebral house.
REMIXED serves as a testament to the trio’s clubland roots and their newfound role as global curators within the scene. It is the forward-thinking nature of the underground that gave way to the experimental crafting of SOLACE, with the remix album offering a look into the record box that helped shape the original. Those who have attended the group’s coveted DJ sets at iconic clubbing locales like Space Miami or Ibiza’s Amnesia Terrace will recognize these massive cuts. Fans can pre-order the collection HERE. A special vinyl edition will also be made available on October 18th.
Australian indie-electronic duo Lastlings, signed to RÜFÜS DU SOL’s own Rose Avenue Records, share their rendition of “Solace” ahead of the full remix album launch. In a nearly unrecognizable rendition of the original, Lastlings add a dark and pulsating beat to the shadowy synths that echo over lead singer, Amy Dowdle’s, velvety harmonies. Listen HERE. In just over a year, the pair have experienced an explosive rise, amassing over a few million streams to date, securing a coveted performance on the Do LaB stage at Coachella, and supporting RÜFÜS on major dates across their Australian and North American tours.
This week marks the second leg of the band’s massive SOLACE World Tour, which sees them sell out two nights at Berkeley’s Greek Theatre, three nights at NY’s Brooklyn Mirage, two nights at the iconic Red Rocks, a top-billing performance at Lollapalooza, and their largest headline show to date at Los Angeles State Historic Park.
Whilst on the road, RÜFÜS have launched a new episodic series titled “Between Du Sols” featuring backstage conversations between the band and supporting artists along the way. Check out Episode 1 with Cassian HERE.
