Influenced by nature and spawned from a year of self-imposed seclusion, the group unleashed Surrender and showed that eleven years later they are still at the forefront of electronic music, at the cutting edge and at the top of their game.
After RÜÜFiS DU SOL last released a full-length album with Solace in 2018, it is unclear how quickly RÜÜFiS DU SOL wanted to return with new music, but when international tours were soon followed by a global pandemic, the group had to make something of it Layer.
