RÜFÜS DU SOL, the Grammy-winning live electronic trio of James Hunt, Tyrone Lindqvist, and Jon George, has announced the upcoming release of their new curation project, “Surrender Remixes.” Set for release on 12th August via their imprint Rose Ave/Reprise and Warner Records, the band have enlisted a heavyweight assembly of world-class production talent, and friends and peers from across the spectrum of the electronic underground, to reimagine their landmark fourth studio album, “Surrender”.
“Surrender,” which has been released in October 2021 and features the Grammy-winning single “Alive,” was written in the band’s Hollywood studio. The result was bold, brave, and their most celebrated release to date, citing Nine Inch Nails, Moderat, and Radiohead as just a few of the myriad and eclectic sonic influences informing their production techniques on the record. The LP has already been streamed over 1.5BN times, premiering as the #4 most popular album on Spotify in the US and #6 globally and #1 dance album on iTunes and Apple Music.
Adriatique remix of On My Knees
The first track from the fourteen track “Surrender Remixes” EP, released today on July 29th, comes from Swiss production duo Adrian Shala and Adrian Schweizr aka Adriatique. The duo remixes “On My Knees,” one of the album’s standout moments – a brooding insight into RÜFÜS DU SOL’s darker tendencies that toys with honest emotions and aching lyricism, demonstrating what makes the band so unique in the electronic space. Adriatique’s remix is intricate, as is the duo’s signature set; long and meditative, with a relentlessly hypnotic groove throughout.
The greater project features cuts from Istanbul’s hotly-tipped selector Carlita, Diymanic head-honcho Solomun and label mainstay Magdalena, the band’s longtime collaborator, Rose Ave label-mate and mix engineer Cassian and fellow Australian production talent Dom Dolla. Tale of Us’ Anyma joins Afterlife resident Colyn, AnjunaDeep’s Monkey Safari, Adana Twins, and others to remix the band’s track “Alive,” which won the band their first Grammy last year.
