Globally renowned live-electronic trio RÜFÜS DU SOL recent release “SOLACE REMIXES VOLUME 3” featuring Icarus’s remix of “Lost In My Mind,” and Will Clarke’s remix of “No Place” off their new LP SOLACE.
UK house duo Icarus lead the package with their rework of “Lost In My Mind,” featuring the pair’s singular melodies and ethereal sound design atop a breakbeat percussive riff. Matching the emotive energy of the original, Icarus breathe a new life into “Lost In My Mind,” completely reinventing the melodic structures and reinvigorating the song into something entirely different. 2018 has been monumental for Icarus, tapped by Pete Tong for their first ever Essential Mix, boasting spins from Annie Mac, releasing two singles “Echoes” and “Man Of The Land” via Parlophone/WBR, and joining RÜFÜS DU SOL for their U.S. record tour.
Will Clarke leaves “No Place” largely intact, while completely reworking the song’s chorus and elevating it to an entirely different sonic echelon. A global favorite by the way of Bristol, Clarke, a known generator of quality house music, won over the hearts of the DIRTYBIRD family by countless releases on the label and becoming a mainstay at their flagship Campout festivals. These steps catapulted him to conquer stages at some of the globe’s most prominent electronic music festivals including Coachella, CRSSD, HARD Summer and more.
As celebrated in the DJ booth as they are headlining festivals, RÜFÜS DU SOL continue to tip their curatorial hat to rising talents and widely respected legends alike. Exemplified through their own Rose Avenue Records imprint, and the handpicking of remixers from across the electronic spectrum, they aim to make their mark as a band by and for global dance music fans. “SOLACE Remixes Vol. 3” see’s Icarus and Will Clarke join an already star-studded assemblage of remix talent for the LP like Adam Port and Lindstrom & Prins Thomas with more on the way.
Today’s remix pack arrives just two weeks after RÜFÜS DU SOL’s massive BBC 1 Essential Mix, and just two months after their third LP SOLACE which was released via their own imprint Rose Avenue / Reprise Records. Topping off a massive year for the band, Billboard Dance has just named SOLACE as their #1 Dance/Electronic album of 2018.
The crux of RÜFÜS DU SOL remains the deep connection felt between the band and their dedicated global fan base in the live space. The band recently embarked on the beginning of a world tour in support of SOLACE with sold-out shows including three nights at Los Angeles’ Shrine Expo Hall, two nights at Denver’s Fillmore, plus single night triumphs at Bill Graham in San Francisco, Valley View Casino Center in San Diego and Aragon Ballroom in Chicago.
