Soulwax have announced a return to the live stage with a full band for the first time in five years.
When not getting lost in synths and drum machines as 2ManyDJs or releasing fine electronic records as Deewee or Despacio their influential club with James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, the brothers Dewaele perform with a live electro-rock band as Soulwax.

Formed by brothers Stephen and David Dewaele in 1995, Soulwax have consistently pushed the boundaries of music into new and innovative territory. As well as a band, they are DJs (2manydjs), a record label (DEEWEE) and the sound system Despacio – a joint project with James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem.
The news of their return to the stage comes at a milestone moment for the brothers who have just been awarded the legendary ‘Outstanding Contribution to Music award in association with Merlin’ at this year’s AIM Awards in recognition of their decades-spanning work and influence.
Few artists can consistently reinvent themselves with the level of success that Soulwax have achieved, so their return in 2024 promises to set a new precedent for what electronic music can be: the countdown has begun for Soulwax to prove once again that part of the weekend never dies.
