When Soulwax were asked to perform an Essential Mix last year they did what only Soulwax can do – present a unique journey of music that surprises as much as entertains.
We have been big fans of Soulwax since they were Too Many DJs and this new offering does not disappoint. Unlike their previous album, which was recorded in only one take, Essential Mix is the product of two weeks solid studio time where they admit to locking themselves away in order to produce this disarming techno masterpiece.
The concept of the album is the word ‘essential’ and despite the minimalist idea the sound is pure driving rhythms gradually building to make one of the most technically interesting electronic albums released this year!
Stand out track: ‘Essential 4’
