Over the past twelve months or so Aussie three piece RÜFÜS have built a solid reputation as Sydney’s best purveyors of highly volatile, indie dance beats. Euphoric, moody and deliciously low-fi, their compositions have been hailed by critics and embraced by thousands of dreamy-eyed, hips swaying fans. Their latest release is the Summer + Selena Remix EP, available now through Continental Records and it should definitely earn a few extra followers…
Rüfüs - This Summer (RUFUS Remix)
The EP features five superb remixes courtesy of Parachute Youth, JBAG, Softwar, Lancelot and Frames, as well as a rework of “This Summer” by Rüfüs themselves. If there was ever a good time to revisit some of the trio’s best remixes, it is now! Check out a little selection below or click here and here for more…

One of the most exciting bands in Sydney at the moment, RÜFÜS seems poised to join Midnight Juggernauts, The Presets and Cut Copy on the list of Australian acts who managed to successfully export their music and gain worldwide recognition.
The trio consists of Jon George, Tyrone Lindqvist and James Hunt, three young Sydneysiders with Scandinavian roots who gravitated in different musical universes but eventually collided to form RÜFÜS. Their delicately constructed combination of icy beats, live instruments, ethereal synths and looped vocals sets the stage for inevitable moments of dance floor euphoria. It feels like a breath of fresh air in the indie scene and, more importantly, it’s irresistibly danceable!
RÜFÜS - Paris Collides
After an extremely successful self-titled debut EP released at the start of the year on their own label called Monekeleon, the trio is now planning to release a new EP packed with club friendly versions of “We Left” including remixes from SymbolOne, Go Go Bizkitt!, Broke One, Beaumont, Germany Germany , Monsieur Adi and Ride the Universe.
