RÜFÜS DU SOL have emerged as one of the world’s preeminent live electronic acts. The Australian three-piece, known formerly to the world as just RÜFÜS, have thus far won the world over with two platinum-certified albums, ATLAS and Bloom, and 2018’s hit album Solace.
Comprised of members Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George and James Hunt, RÜFÜS DU SOL first made their break in 2013, when their debut album, ATLAS, reached #1 in Australia. Their sophomore follow-up, 2016’s Bloom, subsequently hit #1 as well, transforming them from national heroes into a rising global phenomenon.
The album, which produced such iconic singles as “You Were Right” and “Innerbloom,” notably spawned a momentous two-year tour, including a milestone appearance at Coachella in 2016.
Now residing in Los Angeles, RÜFÜS DU SOL have spent the past year finishing their third album, largely influenced by the stark desert landscapes of California and their experiences on the road. With a new record on the horizon and a standout two-year tour at their backs, RÜFÜS DU SOL have entered a new era of their career.
“It feels like a new RÜFÜS,” the trio says. “We’re excited about this new music. We’re ambitious as ever.”

In the latter half of 2014 Cassian signed to Sydney’s Sweat It Out Music! which will see the release of his debut single Running ft. Cleopold. The track was produced, mixed & mastered across studios in Sydney, London, LA & early DJ feedback already has support from Oliver Heldens, The Magician, Motez, Bag Raiders, The Aston Shuffle, Rufus, Nina Las Vegas, Sinden and looks set to be a summer weapon (in Aus) and a winter warmer for those in the northern hemisphere.
What does the future have in store? Remixes for Elliphant, Vanilla Ace, Classixx, as well as a follow up EP on Sweat it Out – He’s only just getting started.
California-based producer Vasu Patel chose the artist name Banksia (named after a train station in Sydney, Australia) in order to represent his artist identity.
Banksia’s background encompasses four different continents (Africa, Australia, Europe, North America). Before choosing to take the producer route, he locked down residencies with a number of venues.
After completing a producer course in Australia at Liveschool in Sydney, Vasu was equipped with the techniques and tools taught by award-winning artists, allowing him to deliver his own blend of dark, mystic, analog and digital sounds to the world.
Deep in his creative process of music production, Banksia has a lot of new music in the pipeline. 2019 looks to be a prosperous debut year.
