There is certainly a lot of buzz surrounding the Australian trio RÜFÜS DU SOL following the release of a handful of singles of their highly anticipated studio album, Solace, which is set to be released October 19th.

The electronic group has found themselves taking over the blogosphere once again with the launch of their new label Rose Avenue celebrating its debut with a club-ready single from fellow Australian, rising producer Cassian.

The label’s first release is a raw, melodious techno record that stemmed from a melody that popped into Cassian’s head will touring the states with RÜFÜS DU SOL back in 2016.

Cassian explains, “In April 2016 I was on tour with RÜFÜS DU SOL in the USA. We are all jammed into a van on our way to Knoxville from Chicago. I was sitting in the front seat when this melody just popped into my head and started going round & round & round. I quickly whipped out my laptop to transcribe it into Ableton and about 20 minutes later after laying down some simple drums & a few other sounds to accompany the main melody, I thought to myself, I need to save this NOW. I looked up and my attention was drawn to a street sign which read… ‘Lafayette’”

“We made this last record over a period of a year living together in a little house in LA. Our partners, friends, collaborators cruised in and out of the house all day. It was home to everyone who visited, and our friends named it Rose Avenue – after the street it was on. With this label we wanted to continue that feeling of creating a home for us and our friends, bringing the specific style of electronic music we love to the world,” RÜFÜS DU SOL shares regarding their Rose Avenue label.

“We’ve been in the position where we made an album we loved – Bloom – and had no label in North America to release it except for our buddies Odesza. They backed us, got our album out there and played a huge part in building our fan base outside Australia. We are forever grateful to them for that. We want to return the favor and give artists that we love and believe in that platform. There is great music out there that people aren’t willing to take a chance on. From that idea Rose Avenue was born.”
