Sydney trio RÜFÜS have been absolutely everywhere of late! In just under two years they have managed to release a solid collection of high rotation singles, produce stellar remixes for the likes of New Navy, Citizens and Gotye, as well as play sold out gigs in NYC and all over Australia. Set to release their debut album Atlas later this month on Sweat It Out, Rüfüs whet our appetites with their latest release “Take Me”, an effortlessly feel-good tune with dark undertones and a killer beat!
Described by the label as “future pop-tech in sunglasses”, the song has been receiving glowing coverage across the interwebs and crazy amounts of club support. “Take Me” comes with remixes from Bareskin, Polographia, Cassian and new Sweat It Out signing Adapt or Die. Listen to a couple of remixes below and grab your own FREE copy of Cassian’s reworking on Facebook.

Bag Raiders have a nice surprise for all their fans! They have been pretty quiet lately but it’s just because they were busy curating the fourth edition of Modular’s Leave Them All Behind compilation series! After inviting The Bang Gang Deejays on vol.2, trendy Aussie label Modular decided to hand the reins to Sydney’s own Bag Raiders for number 4, which incidentally features a pretty sweet remix of “Snake Charmer”, taken off the duo’s glorious self-titled debut album.

Leave Them All Behind 4 is out since March 11 in Europe and will be released on April 6 in Australia. To celebrate, Bag Raiders will be throwing down their own breed of electronic goodness across Australia over the Easter period, kicking off in Wollongong on April 5th. Don’t miss this opportunity to see the boys perform their classic hits “Shooting Stars” and “Not Over”, and an avalanche of other synth-laden groovy jams…

Composed by Martyn, Thom, Mike, Lawrence and Tom , Citizens! is a London-based five-piece with a mission: to reclaim pop music, because “Pop is not a dirty word. It’s a holy one.” Recently signed to indie label Kitsuné (the lasbel who brought you Logo, Delphic or Housse de Racket), they recorded their debut album in a house, played the whole thing live, got drunk, fought over lyrics and didn’t edit out the mistakes. Most importantly, they never allowed themselves to mimic any particular moment from decades past.
The band’s high-octane debut single, “True Romance”, appeared on Kitsuné’s last compilation and it is getting a proper single release tomorrow December 19th. Along with the original track, the EP includes remixes by talented artists as Database, Populette, White Shadow, Cassian, and Database !
Citizens! True Romance (Gigamesh remix)
Watch out for Citizens!’s debut album, due early next year and produced by none other than Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand.
