Finally, Soulwax is back in action after a long hiatus. Aside from producing a film score last year, they haven’t had any original material since 2008’s Part of the Weekend Never Dies. This changes that. The band, which centers around the Dewaele brothers from Ghent, also better known as 2ManyDJs, tackle the gap on content beautifully, drawing inspiration from their Transient Program For Drums And Machinery tour last year for creative avenue to produce the album.
Its title is From Deewee and they wanted to “record these songs live with the exact same setup, machines and musicians as… on the road.” Filling out to 12 tracks in length, 11 of them being new safe from the single “Transient Program For Drums And Machinery”, which was released last year, the album was astoundingly recorded in one session by a seven-piece band at the Dewaele brothers’ home studio located in Ghent. The range of instruments, effects and hardware is vast and we all can’t wait to hear the productions out live as the embark on a UK and European tour beginning in late March!
