Not the most groundbreaking Soulwax remix but it's also (kinda) something new from Jungle.

Diplo & Damian Lazarus - Don't Be Afraid (feat. Jungle) [Soulwax Remix]

Jungle have a new album out next month. It's the first album I've considered pre-ordering since No Geography. I've been loving the video series they've been putting out with the dancers in the school building - that band has their shit together.

Little interesting crossover... The Blessed Madonna remixed a recent single of theirs - Keep Moving. It's a great slab of disco dub.

EDIT: Thought this was in the Now Playing thread. Sorry for the Jungle takeover.
The Soulwax remix was nice! Kinda felt like Soulwax feat. Jungle, which I enjoyed very much.

Somehow I missed this when it was released. This one is amazing.

Guess which Chems track kicks it off.

Buzz Tracks?
no idea, no idea

oh it was reissued! funny I was just thinking I should finally replace my pirated copy with a legitimate one.

Grabbed the reissue on Vinyl, really good pressing, and an absolutely insane mix that took me right back.

"To me you're like a setting sun. You rise then you're gone"

I ended up getting a used cd copy instead of the reissue. will rip it this evening and go down memory lane.

if anyone is ever interested in going down the rabbit hole of the unofficial "parts", it's a fun deep dive: https://www.2manybootlegs.com/bootleg-albums/as-heard-on-radio-soulwax/

Soulwax created the score for a new expansion of GTA online:

Apparently it will be a full album? Hopefully the music will be available as a standalone, I really like what I've heard so far :)

Track 6 uses some previously unreleased material that was played years ago during their Soulwaxmas events, I've always loved that bootleg:

Oh, that's tonight!


*EDIT*, no wait it was midnight last night, not tonight. It's on the BBC Sounds/website NOW.
Are you sitting comfortably? Then we'll begin.
A whole new slice of "as heard on Radio Soulwax".

well that was damn enjoyable.

"You people have got to get out of that area!"

Love this track from the Essential Mix. Love the EM speed compared to the above pitched up Youtube version. 
That would have blown my mind. If I had a mind.

"We going up!" and then pogo for the stars

Found a connection via the Essential Mix and digging in to past posts on the forum.

Csar posted in the covered chemicals topic of the cover of Base 6 by Yuki and Yuna of CHAI.

2ManyDjs use the following CHAI track early in the mix and I love CHAI now.
That would have blown my mind. If I had a mind.

"You people have got to get out of that area!"
Ha! Yeah this is great.
"Hey I asked y'all not to stand on top of the speakers. Y'all hard-headed or wut?"
And also "We've got Colt 45 and Miller...30c a glass". I remember Colt 45 beer from when I was a kid. They tried to get a foothold in the Irish beer market back when everybody drank Guinness and Smithwicks. They didn't succceed, but the ads were on the side of every bus in Dublin for a while.

I don't know where the Dewaele's got those vocal clips from but they weren't on the original release of Love Attack that came out in 1979.

I think the mix really gets going with this Ferrara track, so maybe the intro to this mix isn't quite as exciting an the intro to "As Heard on Radio Soulwax pt2". I hope the opening couple of minutes don't put people off. Because overall, it's fantastic!

Found a [Chemical] connection via the Essential Mix...
Oh I think I found some more:
1) Sharif Laffrey - And Dance (1hr,04) was in the Chems 2019 Essential Mix.
2) D.H.S. – House Of God (mixed with Tiga's Easy) at 1hr,11. The Chems had another track from the same House Of God EP - "Holophonic Sound", in their 2019 Mix.
3) Pygmy Music. Around 50 mins. The Chems sampled Mbola from Aka Pygmies in MAH, and I'm pretty sure these are Pygmy vocals here.

In terms of iconic mash-ups, I'm not sure there's anything here that will stand out as much as say, Iggy & The Stooges w/ Salt N' Pepa or Detroit Grand Pubahs w/ New Order, but that doesn't mean there isn't plenty here to enjoy.
For example, the bit around 1hr30: D-Mob– We Call It Acieed/KiNK – Disco Spectrum/Wet Leg – Too Late Now (Soulwax Remix), it all fits together so damn well.
The aforementioned mix of Tiga and DHS works nicely too. There's lots of great stuff here.
"As Heard..." was about an hour long and had 45 tracks. This mix is twice as long and has twice as many tracks.

Well I hope this Essential Mix gets a wider release at some point.
"As Heard... (pt.1)" started life as a Hang The DJ mix for Belgian radio (AFAIK), before getting a (re-jigged) release as "part 2"
The Soulwax Essential (1-12) album started life as an Essential Mix for the BBC before getting an official release.
So it would be great to see this Essential Mix get a proper release too (track clearances permitting).

Inidentally, I noticed little snippets of the "Essential" Soulwax vocals pop up at around 22 mins, 1hr,10, 1hr,36 and 1hr,51 here. A nice nod to the Daewale brothers previous Essential Mix.

A couple of people have uploaded it to YouTube, which may be of interest to those geo-blocked by the BBC. The one below has little (or no?) advertising.
The one under the spoiler tabs has annoying ads but also has a free M4a dowload in the YT description. Both uploads have attempted tracklistings in their descriptions.

Yea though I walk through the valley and shadow of death
every day of my life,
I fear no evil for The Lord is with me.
