About this item

INITIAL STOCK HAS FLOWN OUT - SO PREORDER FOR THE NEXT SHIPMENT DUE IN A FEW WEEKS.

Holy smokes! Soulwax meet Fontaines D.C. uptown with a HUGE remix of the title track from their Grammy nominated LP "A Hero's Death". Celebrating multiple decades of the indie dance floor, the Belgium brothers concoct a shuffling disco-not-disco drum beat before adding a touch of those warped backing vox employed all over "Nite Versions" (think Krack). Intro over, Grian Chatten's semi-spoken vocals take the lead, subtly skewed with fx and emphasised with laser fire, analogue fx and some chunky mechanical synth sounds. Grooving through the refrain of "Life Ain't Always Empty", the Dewaele's let loose with trilling synth licks, piano and guitar, giving us a wonked out workout worthy of the Blockheads but with the Soulwax shimmer. Reasons to be Cheerful Pt. 4 I reckon!

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Absolutely flying off the shelves right now, this indie-dance UFO sees Soulwax strip down the blessings-counting "A Hero's Death", reassembling the track as a disco-not-disco cyborg with all sorts of whirring mechanical parts. Class!
