As I’m sure I have stated before, when it comes to music I like it usually involves guitars, bass, drums and the odd synth here and there.
The DE$iGNATED remix of Desert Night by antipodean trio RÜFÜS is, let us be honest, the complete anathema of this. But when you add silky smooth vocals, a pounding and deep bass, almost dubstep in nature, and a superb appreciation of what makes music good the resulting recipe makes something more than the sum of its parts.
RÜFÜS’s debut album ATLAS is set for release in February, and I’m going to review it (hopefully) nearer the time. They are certainly worth investigating further.
