Today, RÜFÜS DU SOL released the official remix to their recent album heater ‘I Don’t Wanna Leave’ from melodic tech titan, Innellea. Out now on Rose Avenue and Reprise / Warner Records, the remix follows a career milestone for the Australian live-electronic trio during their US tour, coming off 70,000 tickets sold at Los Angeles’ Banc of California stadium.
Having originally debuted in 2016 on Steyoyoke Recordings, Innellea quickly rose to be one of the fastest growing talents in the international techno scene. In his rendition of ‘I Don’t Wanna Leave’, Innellea appropriately twists RÜFÜS DU SOL’s haunting lyrics and melody into a late night staple, while preserving the distinct and rippling synth work of the original track.
Over the past few years Innellea has become a favorite of powerhouse labels such as Innervisions and Afterlife. Recently, the German selector was tapped by Solomun’s Diynamic Picture series, where he effortlessly blended cinematic and post-apocalyptic sounds together to create isolating scores and an intimate listening experience, something that has become somewhat of a trademark to his artistry.
Innellea comments — “Innerbloom was a very important song during my youth and played an important part of my first contact with electronic music. I am very happy and proud to contribute a remix for them now.”
Innellea joins a coveted list of remixers from previous singles off of RÜFÜS DU SOL’s recently released Surrender LP. ‘Next to Me’ saw renditions from the titan of the Brazilian electronic music scene Vintage Culture and TAU label bosses, Adana Twins, while ‘Alive’ was mixed by underground trailblazer Solomun and the inspired musical concept from Tale Of Us’ Matteo Milleri, Anyma.
The album itself represents a new chapter in the world that RÜFÜS DU SOL has been shaping and nurturing since their inception, and already sits at over 55 million global streams, having debuted at #1 on the ARIA Australian album charts. Built on their own terms as they travel down their own distinct sonic lane, they expertly bridge the gap between their electronic roots and prowess as live musicians. The record demonstrates a bolder and braver sound than they’ve created in the past, a result of a culmination of influences from Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails to Moderat and Jon Hopkins.
Following the album release and subsequent US tour for which only a few dates remain, RÜFÜS DU SOL went on to announce Sundream Tulum alongside Papaya Playa Project, an immersive destination event set to run in Tulum, Mexico next year. From March 10-13 at Papaya Playa Project, Sundream will see the Grammy-nominated live-electronic band bring together their fans and some of their favorite artists in the world such as Bob Moses, Monolink, Adam Port, WhoMadeWho and more,to one of North America’s most beautiful locales.
