RÜFÜS DU SOL Return With New Single ‘You Were Right’

After spending the latter part of 2014 writing new music from a Berlin base, RÜFÜS DU SOL returned to Sydney at the start of 2015 to finish music for their 2nd album. ‘You Were Right’ is the first song they wrote after returning home. Its completion marked a turning point in the writing process for the follow up to the 2013 breakout album ATLAS. A story of unrequited longing for someone, ‘You Were Right’ is an undeniably perfect blend of Berlin’s chilling winter with the sun kissed euphoria of Sydney in the Summertime.
Vocalist Tyrone explains: “We got home after being away for 5 months, we’d spent the last part of that locked up in this special little apartment in Friedrichshain that we turned into our studio. But, it was so cold that we were rarely leaving the apartment…. so coming home to summer in Sydney, being surrounded by the familiarity of everything that being home entails, we were suddenly approaching songwriting in a different way, both technically and emotionally. We were able to unlock a different side to our writing.”

‘You Were Right’ follows the group’s massively successful ATLAS LP. The album was certified gold, and quickly propelled RÜFÜS DU SOL into the spotlight and onto international stages. After amassing a slew of awards and nominations for the album, and having two of their songs named ‘Essential New Tunes’ by Pete Tong on his BBC Radio One show, RÜFÜS DU SOL departed for over a year of touring the world, including a series of headlining North American dates. 

Now making their triumphant return, the trio has emerged from the studio with a full album’s worth of material to share. ‘You Were Right’ is the lead single from the yet-to-be-named sophomore album from RÜFÜS DU SOL, and is out now.

Coinciding with the release of this seminal summertime tune, RÜFÜS DU SOL has announced a full run of North American Summer festival dates, including stops at Camp Bisco, Northern Nights, Woogie Weekend, 1UP Colfax in Denver, Gas Monkey in Dallas, and Full Moon Festival in New York.

Straight to the point; Otto Von Schirach just destroyed a whole cave full of Dragons, Knights, Illuminati Bronies, and Masked Princesses.


That’s right, even the princesses.  His first few mixes are trippy, and lead you into the performance, preparing you for some straight freakiness.

He proceeds to warn the crowd they’re about to travel to parts unknown, glitching out the vocals hard, and blending them seamlessly with the tracks.

Like only true Masters of Ceremonies can.  Live vocals during this whole performance make the whole thing so much more entertaining to watch, it’s hard to even look away from.

Did we mention the cameo from the one eyed Screamo Crow?

There are so many different aspects to this performance, you can tell a lot of love went into creating it.  It’s more than a DJ set, it’s an art piece.  The music, the vibe, the hype…all timeless.

And Wait…What?

23 Minutes in he goes complete caveman, bringing the listener/viewer/party straight back to the time of the Dinosaurs, with an absolutely huge Moombahcore slammer, and again back to that oldschool hip hop/bass vibe for a sec…Right before he starts rapping in Spanish over it?

Oh.  I see what he did there.

It was a set up!

Pretty sure no one expected him to blend into Tropical Bass.

This set is full of surprises.

My heart goes out to the booties of the dancers the next morning, because Otto goes hard.  Like…Real Hard.

A lot of the time, he’s not beat matching, but no one cares.  This man is a rock God.  More than that, he is a certified Miami made Bass God.

How the Hell did he just switch over to playing trap?  Wait, is that another Breakbeat?  No, wait…it’s…Proto Jungle?

Booty breaks?

Boiler Room’s write up was right when they called it “…a universal brain-cue from the Bermuda Triangle straight to Berlin… it’s Otto Von Schirach opening port-holes in Boiler Room and out to the universe.”


Shit.  Yours.  Don’t lose it.  The next couple of blends are some scary Gabber-esque Breakcore that could cause a lung to implode, given the right set of conditions, but don’t worry.  He gets back to the Miami Bass soon.

You’ve done enough brain work for now, though.  It’s time to stop reading.  Press play, strap yourself in, and prepare yourself for a freaky journey through bass, Otto Von Schirach style.

And if your craving this in your stereo, the whole thing is available to download, free of charge via Boiler Room’s official website.
