I’ll admit it, I’ve only just got that all the supposed ‘bands’ in Soulwax’s soundtrack for forthcoming film ‘Belgica’ don’t actually exists – they’re fake. Make believe. Fictitious.
They’re simply an incredibly clever vehicle for Soulwax’s many personalities to shine through on the group’s new album/soundtrack/ruse. They’re so convincing, in fact, I actually thought The Shitz were some cool up-and-coming Belgian band that Soulwax had produced.
How wrong I was.
For the second track to be previewed from the album, Soulwax have created an female-fronted electro band for a thumpin’ slice of gluey electro, dubbed ‘Ti Recordi De Me’, which features vocals rapped in Italian no less. It’s almost certainly the best thing we’ve heard this year.
Erasmus ‘Ti Recordi De Me’ is taken from the album Belgica (Original Soundtrack By Soulwax). Released 26th February. Pre-order from iTunes and get tracks instantly: http://po.st/belgicasoundtrack
