Recorded live in one take.
Soulwax will release their new album From Deewee on limited edition clear vinyl via The Vinyl Factory on 24th March.
Stephen and David Dewaele’s first studio LP as Soulwax in 12 years, From Deewee was recorded in one take at their Deewee studio in Ghent, drawing on the duo’s treasure trove of vintage synths, including an Oberheim Two-Voice Pro, EMS Synthi AKS, ARP Odyssey and Sequential Prophet 6.
The album is based on Soulwax’s Transient Program For Drums and Machinery live show, which began touring in summer 2016, and lends its name to the album’s lead single, released on limited and etched 12″ earlier this year.
“We set out to record these songs live with the exact same setup, machines and musicians as we had on the road,” the pair said. Extensively rehearsed, the album was laid down in a single take on 7th February this year before being mixed, edited and expanded the following week.
