Explain to me what you do.

Basically, anything we like,

under the name of Soulwax.

Come on.

First of all, can you tell

the audience what's the difference

between 2ManyDJs


and Radio Soulwax?

That's how simple it is.

Soulwax? It's like

French Canadian or something.

It's like a hemp store or like

a place that sells dragon sticks.

OK, so 2ManyDJs

are Dave, my brother,

and me, DJing

and playing other people's music.

Soulwax is a rock band

which includes

my brother Dave, again,


Steve on drums

and Stefaan, our bass player.

We're a rock band.

And then Nite Versions

is Soulwax remixing itself

and playing the remixes live.

Then we thought,

"What if we do everything together

and we do one night

called Radio Soulwax?

"We can do it all together."

It's confusing.

It's almost Goa. It's like

a trance name. A bad trance name.

You couldn't just go to Nite Versions.

It would have been lunacy.

2ManyDJs had gone off

DJing around the world,

but the rock band was

in a time capsule.

Every time I see Dave or Steph,

the first thing I say,

before 'hello', is,

"Any minute now is a great record."

And then they went and decided

to ditch Any minute now

and do a different version

of the album. And I was utterly...


Oh, f*ck. F*ck.

Nite Versions, to me,

rocked as hard as the rock band did.

Soulwax, because it's

a live band but it sounds like...



possibly the best thing I've ever seen

in my whole entire life.

- It was diabolical.

- Beyond diabolical.

It's like cocaine

without the big ideas.

One of them dared me to go onstage

naked, so I thought, "F*ck it."

He thought nothing of it.

To make the dance record

out of the gate would have felt

like capitulating to the pressure

of the new success as a DJ duo

in a world in which dance

and rock are no longer separate

like they were when

the Soulwax records were made.

And then when the massive pressure

of making the Soulwax album proper

was released, and the album came out,

to be like, "Want to make

some remixes? Nite versions?"

In our studio, without much pressure;

that was how to bridge the gap.

I remember that.

It was, "Want to DJ in August?"

"No, the record's

gonna be done in one week."

OK, December.

"Hey, you want to come?"

"Can't, man, the record.

One more week."

March. "What are you doing?"

"One more week.

It's just the final touches."

"We hate half the songs, it's crap.

We have to redo them."

God, I hated watching that.

Soulwax started because we're big fans

of Monster Magnet and Kyuss

and all that. Masters of Reality.

That's why we started playing music.

And we were already interested

in a lot of other things

and it came out of it.

That's where we come from.

We toured, against everyone's advice.

We would do support for Muse

and all these bands for months,

and we'd get really bored because

at 11 o' clock the show was over.

"OK, cool, what do we do now?"

Most times we'd go to clubs

and ask the DJs if we could take over

because we didn't like their stuff.

That's how we started doing 2ManyDJs.

We really started from being

on tour and being bored.

...changed the world

with his impossible puzzles.

2ManyDJs, live

and, introducing the album

Nite Versions by Soulwax

on November 22nd at Salon 21.

Special guests:
No Somos Machos

pero Somos Muchos.

Soulwax and 2ManyDJs:

Nite Versions Live.

A presentation to the rhythm of...

Bits of the album are sounds

they gave us when we did a remix

of NYExcuse.

And we stole them. Other people steal

them from us now, which is funny.
