Australian-based producer Cassian always impresses us with his remixes, but his latest take on RÜFÜS DU SOL’s single “On My Knees” is an absolute favorite. The track was originally released last year as the fourth single from RÜFÜS DU SOL’s album Surrender, and Cassian’s remix comes as a nice surprise while he tours the U.S. with Hayden James.
Cassian preserves the dark synths and vocals in the track, but adds his own take through an iconic build-up and drop fit for a festival. After mixing three of RÜFÜS DU SOL’s previous albums, it was important to Cassian to keep as much of the original track as possible to preserve their unique sound.
One comment I’d gotten from a few friends about the mix on the original was how much they loved the low end. For the remix I really just wanted to take the subs to the next level & arrange it in a way that would work in a DJ set while keeping as many elements from the original as possible. Playing it for the first time at Sundream was a surreal moment and the reaction from the crowd cemented the direction I had taken with the remix. I purely made it to be something special & unique to play during my DJ sets so for it to be getting an official release feels amazing.
If you’re not able to catch Cassian on tour this summer, you can check out his remix of RÜFÜS DU SOL’s “On My Knees” below. We hope you love it as much as we do. Enjoy!
