Soulwax / 2ManyDjs

September 2010

Whilst it may be true to say that in the grand scheme of it all; that Soulwax are 2 Many DJs , 2 Many DJs however is not the sum of Soulwax as a whole; confused? Don’t be.
Not just studio or booth boffins like you might think, despite a predilection towards it, they are infact a highly acclaimed band in their own right, that have been known to tear the roof off venues in their day, touring their last studio album- the much lauded ‘Much Against Everyone’s Advice’ (released in 1999) took them across Europe on several vast sellout tours (including a triumphant sold out show at London’s Astoria), interspersed with some key festival appearances across the continent.
For those of you more familiar with the name Soulwax, through the 2 Many DJs Alta-ego of the bands Dewaele brothers; their mix compilation ‘As heard on Radio Soulwax Part 2′ (which has sold in excess of 300,000 copies since it’s release), from the chapter about them in acclaimed Novelist Nick Hornby’s ’31 songs’ book released last year, or more than likely from one of their many in demand club and festivals, sets the world over.
They have also committed remix to wax as Soulwax for the likes of Felix Da Housecat (‘Rocketride’), Ladytron (‘Seventeen’), Kylie Minogue (‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’), Playgroup (‘Make It Happen’), DJ Shadow (‘Six Days’) and Sugababes (‘Round Round’) amongst others, and are currently working on producing Tiga’s debut album back home in Ghent (In Belgium in case you wondered).
Soulwax ARE the aforementioned brothers David & Stephen Dewaele, Stefaan Van Leuven augmented by the return of former drummer, Steve Slingeneyer.
