Soulwax

This double-CD compilation is the Belgian duo’s attempt to cram most of their remixes into one place. While they’re as stupendous as we’ve come to expect from Soulwax, it’s the second CD, a continuous 2ManyDJs mix, that really makes this...

Soulwax : NY Excuse

Do Soulwax listen to their own records? If so, why can’t the Dewaele brothers see (or rather hear) that this tapped/toe-tapping electronic nuisance is about a thousand times better than ‘E-Talking’? As a rock band they plod, as dance...

Much Against Everyone's Advice

Why know your limitations when no-one else sticks to theirs? In a world where Marky Mark acts and Posh presents, nobody does just one thing any more. As both DJs and band, Soulwax are a sign of those times. Not that you'd know it from...
