This past week, Australian live electronic act and tastemakers RÜFÜS DU SOL released two official remixes for their latest single ‘Next To Me’. Out now on Rose Avenue and Reprise / Warner Records, the double remix package is led by a titan of the Brazilian electronic music scene Vintage Culture. The second comes from TAU label bosses, German underground duo the Adana Twins.
We dive into the package with platinum-selling Vintage Culture aka Lukas Ruiz, who offers up a six-and-a-half-minute slice of complex, deep melodic house. Complete with textured synthesizers and juxtaposing bass lines, Vintage Culture transforms the track into a late-night dance floor heater, while keeping the focus on Tyrone Lindqvist’s alluring vocals. The remix follows multiple Beatport #1s for Vintage Culture, who is enjoying a summer of sold-out shows and high profile festival appearances at the likes of Fabric London, The Brooklyn Mirage NY, Space Miami, Creamfields, and Lollapalooza.
Vintage Culture comments: “I love RÜFÜS DU SOL since day one. They are a real inspiration to me. I’m so honored! A dream coming true. I hope you guys enjoy my remix for ‘Next to Me’.”
Driven by a deep-seated desire to transmit emotion through electronic music, the Adana Twins’ artistry aligns itself naturally with that of RÜFÜS DU SOL. Their ‘A Night at Revolver’ version of ‘Next To Me’ transports the listener directly to the dance floor of Melbourne’s infamous hangout. The Adana Twins inject their signature techno sound into the record, which acts as a staunch reminder of the pair’s German heritage and club scene upbringing. While Vintage Culture has been performing, the Adana Twins have been creating; most recently releasing their EP ‘1983’ on previous RÜFÜS DU SOL remixer Solomun’s label, Diynamic. The EP charged into Beatport’s Indie Dance Top 10 and only continues to climb. A month prior, ‘The Curve EP’ was released on Watergate Records, contributing to a triple number one across three genres. With a recent Hot Mix for BBC1’s Pete Tong in July and an exclusive print edition of TAU’s ‘Spektrum’ compilation series.
Adana Twins add: “We’re huge fans of RÜFÜS DU SOL and really enjoyed remixing one of their tracks! In the studio we had those epic moments in mind when we played RÜFÜS DU SOL tracks at Revolver in Melbourne. It’s the (quite obvious) secret behind the remix title. ;)”
