SOULWAX - CHRISTMAS MIX (320kbs-m4a/49mb/21mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 22nd December 2017
It's Lauren's last show of 2017, so we mark the occasion with some favourite tunes and a festive mix from Soulwax. We're calling it "Soulwaxmas".
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, and the Despacio project with James Murphy.
Their last album, FROM DEEWEE, was recorded with their band in one take at their studio in Ghent, Belgium. They played in session for 6 Music at Maida Vale earlier this year and, of late, we've been thoroughly enjoying the beat-filled beast of a track that is Is It Always Binary?
The Soulwax brothers follow in the footsteps of The Chemical Brothers, who shared their Ghosts Of Christmas Past, Present and Future mix in 2015.
