I like that teaser :)

Here's another of Stefen and David's works (they're really hyperactive !). Waffles is a sublabel of Deewee and they are releasing reworks of old disco tracks on it

Nice, perfect way to spend the evening.

Speaking of the Dewaele Brothers, at the end of August I was at the Zurich Openair where I was fortunate enough to see both of their bands on one day. First an hour of Soulwax early in the evening and then a 90 minute set of 2many after midnight (with a great performance by Digitalism between, so the day was pretty intense :-D)
Soulwax' set was short but great! The first half was new songs and from their Deewee label, maybe from the Belgica soundtrack, too. Second half was their old classics like NY Excuse, Miserable Girl, E Talking an so forth. Those three drumsets really make an impressive surround effect!
For the DJ set I was expecting mostly their covers and edits with the animated artwork, but it was completely different. No animations (only at the beginning a marching radio soulwax tower and at the end their 2manydj logo) and only very few songs I recognized: Mumbay Sciense with Lotus, their rework of Tame Impala's Let It Happen and something I remembered hearing in their Cherry Moon on Valium work). Anyway, it was an electrifying set, I just couldn't dance as much as I would've liked because of fatigue from already three shows before and two days of sightseeing in Zürich.
Some pictures can be found here:

Have you already seen pictures of their new, super artistic studio?

Yeah it looks crazy !

What?! That looks amazing. The outside of the building might look a bit cold, but the inside!!
As I told you at the show, I envy you having seen them twice in one day. I'd really like to seem them live once. Must be quite the experience.

Soulwax - Transient Programs For Drums And Machinery

The track is good, but the vocals are a bit cringy. They also released that :

...'cause I don't like whats going on in the world. I'm scared of that...

That would have blown my mind. If I had a mind.
"We going up!" and then pogo for the stars
"why yes, yes you are crazy and I love you for it!" Whirly

"From Deewee", their next album, will be released on March 24th  ;D

Since it was just very recently recorded, I guess it will be new material, not just a collection from the already known songs of the Deewee Label.

We also can look forward to a tour  ;D

Hmm, so they recorded the whole thing in one take on Tuesday this week. OK.

"Transient Drums..." is in the tracklisting. It's fine but not exactly Krack. I hope this is a bit like "The Girl is Mine" preceeding Thriller and the rest is better. Might be best not to expect something as good as Nite Versions though.

Full press release - nicked from Reddit- including a list of some European dates.



Soulwax today announce the release of FROM DEEWEE, a studio album of brand new material. After a period of extensive rehearsals and a level of planning to befit such a huge feat, FROM DEEWEE was recorded with the band in one take at the Dewaele brother's DEEWEE Studio in Ghent, Belgium on February 7 2017 and will be released on March 24. "Based on the 'Transient Program For Drums and Machinery' which began touring in the summer of 2016, we set out to record these songs live with the exact same setup, machines and musicians as we had on the road", say Stephen and David Dewaele of the recording process. As the artwork FROM DEEWEE says.. Playing on this record are Stephen and David Dewaele, Stefaan Van Leuven, Iggor Cavalera, Victoria Smith, Blake Davies and Laima Leyton. The instruments used are two Staccato drumkits, one clear crystalline Meazzi Wooding drumkit, one set of Rototoms, various Hofner bass guitars, a Macbeth M5n, an Oberheim Two-Voice Pro, a Two Thousand Six Hundred copy built by The Human Comparator, one Oberheim OB-Mx, an EMS Synthi AKS, an Arp Odyssey, a TB-303 clone, a Mellotron M4000D, a Sequential Prophet 6, a Waldorf Streichfett, a Burns Sonic guitar, a Vox Phantom guitar, one Syncussion clone built by Loudestwarning, various solid state Roland, Peavey and Acoustic amplifiers and a wide range of effects, all going through three Trident Fleximix consoles, straight into Pro Tools.

Since the creation of Soulwax in 1995, David and Stephen Dewaele have consistently pushed the boundaries into new and innovative territory. In addition to Soulwax, the brothers continue to tour the globe as 2manydjs, have their DEEWEE record label and studio, Radio Soulwax – a visual radio station and app, the Despacio project with James Murphy and their 2 x 2 radio show on Beats 1. Not to mention producing some of the most cutting edge remixes we've seen in recent times for the likes of Warpaint, Tame Impala, Metronomy, Arcade Fire, Daft Punk, Gossip, Hot Chip, MGMT, and many more.

and tracklisting:

    Preset Tense
    Missing Wires
    Conditions Of A Shared Belief

    Do You Want To Get Into Trouble?
    My Tired Eyes
    Transient Program For Drums And Machinery
    The Singer Has Become A Deejay
    Here Come The Men In Suits
    Goodnight Transmission

They're using a Macbeth. Isn't that the huge thing that Orbital took on their Wonky tour?
Why a 303 clone rather than original?
Ha! I'm talking like I know equipment!  :))

"Missing Wires", a new single from the album, was just released :

Not in love. But it's pretty good.

Good track, already liked it when I heard it last summer.
Two weeks to go  :)

Was listening back to the first 2X2 on my phone (YT rip) when I was out this afternoon, and this tune totally jumps out as a highlight from the first hour. Was gonna put it in "now playing", but it's already here. The 12" is hella expensive on Discogs! I think the B-side (this) is better than the A-side.

This was released on Soulwax's label DeeWee, and it sounds a lot like something the Dewaele brothers would produce. Soulwax or not, I'm listening to it on repeat
