Friday exclusive!

What better way to bring in the weekend than with new music? We’ve got the exclusive on the brand new Hybrid Minds remix of RÜFÜS’ Desert Night, and by gosh it’s a good’un!

RUFUS_Desert Night

The original by the Australian indie dance group is a gem in its own right. With smooth vocals and ambient production, you can’t help but feel like you should be grooving to it in the afternoon sunshine. The trio from Sydney, comprising of Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George and James Hunt, have gone from strength to strength in the past 2 years. Playing to sold out shows in Australia and the US, as well as countless festival appearances; the boys’ star is sure to rise even more. The upcoming release of their album Atlas on April 28th, with single Desert Night released on Feb 24th, should be a good indicator of the further impact these boys will have on the indie dance scene.


Now enter Hybrid Minds: Comprised of Josh White and Matt Lowe, the duo have become a force to be reckoned with in liquid drum & bass, and this remix is no exception. Just when you think Desert Night can’t get any better- think again. From the first 30 seconds of the remix Hybrid Minds’ signature smooth, melodic sound is instantly recognisable. Capturing the essence of the original and transforming it into a liquid masterpiece, Hybrid Minds have done the original justice, in true style and class. Heart wrenching liquid vibes at their best: this remix will ensure your weekend kicks off on the right foot!
