It took the Aussies of RÜFÜS seven months in seclusion and 18 hours a day to put together the album that spawned “Take Me.” Almost immediately after its release, the wistful indie pop ballad was transformed into a marauding house jam. Remixing honors go to Adapt or Die, recent additions to the late DJ AJAX’s Sweat It Out label. People with this talent would usually have quit their day jobs by now, but when your day job is being part of The Swiss or touring with Empire of the Sun, it’s a little too legit to quit.
The remix maintains the filtered vocals of the original but chops them up and drops in a dark brooding bass line to get you vibing. Even with its intense beat, the song retains a funky groove, enlisting the help of some melodic keys that cascade in the background. I’m sure you’ll agree that the laid-back harmonies of the guys complement the high energy of the beat. The best thing about this track? It’s available for free download!
