The profoundly distinctive blend of indie dance and melancholy electronica make the trio stand out. It not only captured the hearts of the people but also brought RÜFÜS DU SOL to the world scene.

RÜFÜS DU SOL debut album Atlas turns 10 years

Travel back in time; RÜFÜS DU SOL had created an everlasting impact on the music business. The turning point was the release of the first single from the album, the 2 x ARIA Platinum ‘Take Me,’ which came to the fore in March of 2013. ‘Take Me‘ had listeners immersed in the emotion and technicality of the RÜFÜS DU DOL universe. It also appeared in the Triple J Hottest 100 that year with album hits ‘Desert Night‘ and ‘Tonight.

With appearances at internationally renowned festivals such as Coachella and Lollapalooza, numerous sold-out tours around the world, multiple ARIA Awards, and a GRAMMY for Best Dance/Electronic Recording for 2021 single ‘Alive,’ RÜFÜS DU SOL has far exceeded everyone’s expectations for success.

Sweat It Out talks about their journey with RÜFÜS DU SOL

Sweat It Out founder, the late Ajax, championed the band from the moment he first heard RÜFÜS DU SOL. Jamie Raeburn, CEO of Sweat It Out, shares his earliest memory of Ajax bringing in the band’s demos to the label:

I remember the moment I first heard RÜFÜS DU SOL. Jaxy [Ajax] had been raving about this band from “The Shire” that were golden. We were in a sketchy dungeon in Darlinghurst, with about 4 folk around one desk. Jaxy was rattling on at a million miles an hour, eyes all aglow in anticipation to see our reaction. He played ‘Take Me’….which blew any doubt I had out the window. Like gone. The guys were big fans of Ajax & he knew exactly what they were and where they were going.

Matt Handley, Director of A&R at Sweat It Out:

It’s such a joy to work with artists who have a clear vision and in the case of the RÜFÜS DU SOL, theirs has always been crystal clear, never bending or compromising with an attention to detail that’s second to none. It’s why everything about them feels so genuine and authentic…because that’s what they are.
