        As Heard On Radio Soulwax Pt. 2 - 2022 Reissue

          In the first two decades of the 21st century, few have controlled the cultural weather quite like Stephen and David Dewaele. The Dewaeles are familiar to millions as 2manydjs, a project which undoubtedly moved the needle for modern DJing. In 2002, after a string of creative broadcasts on radio while still known primarily as a rock band, they released As Heard On Radio Soulwax Pt. 2.

          This was a mix so giddy, creative, genre-blurring and downright fun that it could only be considered equal to a full-length album – which is exactly what happened, tallying Album of the Year and Album of the Decade accolades from the likes of The New York Times, Spin, The Face, Pitchfork and more, and shifting over half a million copies globally.

          As Heard On Radio Soulwax Pt. 2 is now reissued featuring Richard Young’s iconic original photography. To celebrate this 20th anniversary, 2manydjs will perform at London’s Brixton Academy on Saturday December 17th alongside Miss Kittin, Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul and other 2002-specific special guests to be announced.

          The Belgian brothers-in-arms are also known to many as electronic/indie rock band Soulwax, the adored group whose combination of rock, rave and gleaming white suits has proved irresistible to record buyers and festival-goers from the 1990s to the present day.

          Through their Ghent-based studio and record label Deewee, the Dewaeles continue to push cutting-edge electronic music, including Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul’s infectious Topical Dancer, one of 2022’s most celebrated electronic pop albums. They have also kept up a hot streak as remixers, applying their signature jagged-yet-refined electro touch to the likes of Róisín Murphy, Peggy Gou, Robyn, Sylvester, Fontaines D.C., Wet Leg and Marie Davidson. Despacio, the roving audiophile soundsystem which the Dewaeles undertake alongside LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, completes the picture.

          Alongside like-minded allies such as Erol Alkan, Tiga and Jacques lu Cont, 2manydjs swept dancefloors into delirium, gifting a rock ‘n’ roll attitude to club culture. With As Heard On Radio Soulwax Pt. 2 as their genre-blurring calling card, the Dewaeles’ unique style managed to be deeply credible and hugely scalable, propelling the brothers to dance music’s summit, a vantage point from which they never came back down.


          Matt says: I’m not joking. In 2002 (the year this was released), this was THE mixtape to be seen with. Period. Infact, your very success with the opposite / same sex depended largely on whether you had this (at the time) bootleg CD-R in your collection. It got hammered so much we all knew the tracklist and running order off by heart. It introduced us then-teenagers to the joys of the mash-up, and propelled a then-burgeoning David and Stephen Dewaele into the ears of the youth, the dancefloors of the (young) adults, and the columns of the hottest music press at the time. It was and still is quite a phenomenal landmark in music culture. Referenced a million times over and played even more so.

          I’ve never seen it on vinyl. Ever. Whether that’s my own ignorance, turning my back on my teenage dreams as I matured into adulthood or, as it happens, it’s actually quite rare! (it’s the latter – I just checked at the 2012 press goes for about £200!).

          It’s still the ultimate soundtrack to get ready for your Saturday night. Capturing that youthful energy and hitting us with hit after hit presented in the most unusual and infectious ways. Unfortunately it’s unlikely to piss yer parents off as much as it did in 2002 cos they probably already know it!

          Fresh off the back of a Number 1 album Wet Leg, are pleased to reveal a new remix of “Too Late Now” by the legendary Soulwax. The Belgian duo have crafted a certified banger for late-night dancefloors looping Rhian Teasdale’s original vocals through distorted synths and pounding bass cranking up the BPM as they go.

          Limited 12” vinyl release featuring an exclusive instrumental mix on the b-side. 


          Matt says: Following on in their series which has touched up, thus far, Fontaines DC and Sylvester; Soulwax apply their electronic, stadium-tickling magic to recent upshots Wet Leg. It's a clanging, shuddering lesson in rhythm and discord that'll go down a hoot at both your local indie disco and the mainroom of the superclub.


          A. Too Late Now (Soulwax Remix)
          B. Too Late Now (Soulwax Instrumental Mix)



            Comprised of 12 tracks, named "Essential One" – "Essential Twelve", each song on the album is based around the word ‘essential’. Recorded in just under two weeks, "Essential" was created using the gear they didn’t use for their celebrated 2017 LP "From Deewee", which was recorded with the band in one take.

            The band elaborate: 'When we were approached to make an Essential Mix for the BBC in May 2017, we chose to do what every sane human being would do, we decided to lock ourselves into our studio for two weeks and make an hour of new music based around the word 'Essential', instead of preparing a mix of already existing music. The product of this otherwise unwise decision is something we ended up being very proud of and is now being released on the piece of plastic you’re are currently holding in your hands.'

            Stylistically it's fist bumping to stadium-electro whilst it tips its hat respectfully to techno; nothing new there then, and fans of the OG Soulwax sound have got plenty to get stuck into here - it's like Modeselektor's nympho sister who's into roller derby and warehouse raves.

            From Deewee

              It's been twelve long years since the last Soulwax release, 2005's night versions seems an awful long way away, but it's a hell of a lot closer to the introduction of half their instrumental arsenal. Peppered with drool-inducing machinery (if that's your thing) blipping and pulsing away, this is both a futuristic concept and a historical homage.  Opener 'Preset Tense' (it's funny because synths have presets now) is an acidic slice of funked-out 'tron, underpinned by stabs of crystalline keys and grooved-out 303-alike stabs. Militaristic rhythms are offset by heavily swung grooves and clashing snares. 'Condition Of A Shared Belief' twists and turns, scrawling jagged trails of krautrock-inspired sketches behind a soaring atonal vocal abstraction. It is both absorbing and jarring, rendering a head-nodding groove out many conceptual threads like some of Kreidler's finest numbers. 

              Things start to get a little bit more traditionally melodic later on with the sleazy disco hustle of 'Do You Want To Get Into Trouble'. Neon steampunk percussives and glowing reverbs are met with pulsing bass and futuristic squeals, coalescing into a cosmic gothy funk. 

              The afrobeat drums on 'The Singer Has Become A Deejay' twist and turn around a sidechained phaser, dropping into the background before being pulled back into the mix, twice as voracious as before. It's a mellow rhythmic break before the euphoric highs of 'Here Come The Men In Suits' and the resigned ode to bullshit that is 'Goodnight Transmission', along the same sweetly sung / sourly embittered lyrical themes of the great John Grant. 

              From Deewee is a triumph, varied enough to show the wide range of skills these talented Dewaele's have (as if 2 Many DJ's weren't enough evidence), but running gracefully and satisfyingly true to (what I assume are) their influences.  

              STAFF COMMENTS

              Barry says: A superbly presented suite of funked-out sleazy electronica, grooving Krautrock and simmering ambience. Shining with production prowess, but gritty and satisfying enough to keep even the interest flowing. A brilliant return for Soulwax.

              Belgica: Original Soundtrack By Soulwax

                ‘Belgica’ is the new film by Oscar nominated director, Felix Van Groeningen. Its original soundtrack has been composed, recorded and produced by Soulwax.

                The film sees Soulwax’s influence throughout from composing, arranging and recording the original score to creating each and every one of the fictional musical artists featured. A diverse collection of songs, performed by a similarly varied set of artists, has seen Soulwax create what is a unique soundtrack that continues to see them evolve as musical progressionists.

                Recorded and mixed at Soulwax’s new Deewee studio in Ghent, the entire project has been over twelve months in the making.

                As the group says: “We recorded the original music being played in the club, wrote the music, rehearsed and recorded live on set the tracks played by the bands - ranging from a live kraut techno band, White Virgins, bequiffed psychobilly trio They Live through to hardcore outfit Burning Phlegm (featuring Sepultura’s Igor Cavalera) whilst chanteuse Charlotte represents the other end of the spectrum with her neo soul pop.”
