While it has been a while since we got new music by RÜFÜS DU SOL, they’re back now with a remix for Lastlings‘ track, ‘No Time‘ off their upcoming album. It’s out now via their own imprint, Rose Avenue Records and Astralwerks. This marks the Australian trio’s third remix to date, following the ones they did for Foals and ODESZA.
To provide some background, RÜFÜS DU SOL signed Lastlings to their label as the sibling duo were emerging. During that time, they developed and mentored the duo, bringing them along to share the stage for the SOLACE tour in 2019. With that in mind, they’ve now delivered a remix for ‘No Time,’ and Lastlings shared a sentiment towards it.
“‘No Time’ is one of our favourite songs from our upcoming album, so when we heard our friends and mentors RÜFÜS DU SOL were going to remix it, we were so excited about what they would create. The remix is an amazing journey and we absolutely love it! Eagerly waiting for the moment we’re back together moving to it on a packed dance floor.”Lastlings – Press Release
From the start, RÜFÜS DU SOL reiterate their prowess in crafting gripping remixes which highlight the best qualities within the original while providing a unique spin. Silky, effervescent synth plucks bounce in the mix, acting as the melodic backbone while providing contrast to the bulky percussion and rumbling basslines. In addition, they make the vocals central to the track by allowing them to have a prominent presence. Overall, the combination of all those elements alongside the airy vocal chops, combine to form an exceptional remix.
