Rüfüs Du Sol’s sun-down DJ set live from Sydney Harbour

Check out this recent DJ set from Australia’s-own Rüfüs Du Sol! The 2-hour session took place on a private excursion boat as the sun came down over Sydney harbour — filmed by Beatport on Sunday 20th November.

In their productions, the Sydney-based group are known for their eclectic/atmospheric electronic style – and it just so happens they pump out a decent DJ set every now & again as well!

Enjoy the set.


Rüfüs Du Sol Biography

Sydney, Australia-based Rüfüs Du Sol make atmospheric indie electronic dance-pop similar to contemporaries like Pnau and Zhu. Their first two efforts, 2013’s Atlas and 2016’s Bloom, topped the Australian album charts and were both certified gold. They returned to the ARIA charts with 2018’s Solace, hitting number two. Their fourth album, Surrender, arrived in 2021.

Formed in 2010 when a rain-soaked vacation to Byron Bay turned into an impromptu jam session, Rüfüs Du Sol (initially just RÜFÜS), features the talents of guitarist Tyrone Lindqvist, keyboardist Jon George, and drummer James Hunt.

The trio quickly released two EPs, 2011’s RÜFÜS and 2012’s Blue. In 2013, they delivered their debut full-length, Atlas, on Sony. The album topped the Australian charts and was quickly followed by the Desert Night EP. As their international exposure increased, they ran into some complications with the use of their name in the American market, forcing them to change their name to Rüfüs Du Sol in the United States (they would later consolidate both names in 2018).
