Pete Tong has been an outspoken fan of Australian trio RÜFÜS DU SOL since their break half a decade in the past. He’s rinsed their music closely throughout his platforms, doing his half to seal of their now-global domination within the dwell electronica sphere. Having simply launched their critically-acclaimed and deeply private third LP, Solace, the timing synced completely for RÜFÜS to make their debut on the hallowed Essential Mix collection. They made their debut in the course of the wee hours of December 1.
The boys deal with listeners to 2 hours of sounds that that encourage them, and to some extent, their newest album. It opens with TYB’s selection edit of Simian Mobile Disco’s “Mumurations,” earlier than diving deeper into funk-based grooves of Weval and past. The combine is ethereal, but eclectic, with a number of stylings of digital music coming along with a typical tie of sentimental melodies and floating sound design. Ultimately, RÜFÜS DU SOL’s Essential Mix debut is a category showcasing of the place they’re at musically, and fairly an intimate one at that.
