RÜFÜS DU SOL realize third-ever remix with take on Lastlings’ ‘No Time’
Releases from RÜFÜS DU SOL that step beyond originals are a rarity. Earlier this year, the Grammy-nominated triad assembled a mind-numbing 45-minute live concert from the depths of the Joshua Tree desert, where they performed a selection of their most reputable tracks. The eight-cut project was more than sufficient to hold fans over until RÜFÜS DU SOL’s next output, but the group additionally alluded to their fourth LP at the time. RÜFÜS DU SOL advised fans to remain patient, given that the album was in the early stages of production. That perseverance has now begun to pay off as the Australian trio shares a blissful take on brother-sister duo Lastlings‘ “No Time,” which serves as “one of the many things” they have in store.
Initially popping up in RÜFÜS DU SOL’s Beatport ReConnect stream in March and their subsequent isolation appearances thereafter, the remix sees RÜFÜS DU SOL adapt another artist’s work for only the third time. The alternative dance trio previously reworked ODESZA’s “It’s Only” and Foals’ “The Runner.” The Lastlings album single, just over a month old, receives a hearty tempo upgrade from RÜFÜS DU SOL, who reconfigure their label signees’ original to a darker, club-primed climate. RÜFÜS DU SOL delineated how the version came about, stating:
“A few years ago, when we first met Josh and Amy, they played us the demo for ‘No Time’ among others – we loved it – that bunch of demos was one of the things that pushed us to start the label we’d been talking about for a long time. We’re stoked to be able to put our spin on an already incredible track!”
