Soulwax - From DEEWEE

Soulwax will release their new album, ‘From DEEWEE’, on March 24 via the duo’s DEEWEE Records, it has been announced this morning.

It will be Soulwax’s first proper album since 2005’s ‘Nite Versions’ and will coincide with the duo’s European tour which kicks off this March.

‘From DEEWEE’ was recorded by Soulwax in one take at the Dewaele brother’s DEEWEE Studio in Ghent, Belgium on February 7 2017.

“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.

Playing on the 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.
