Soulwax calls off gigs to finish recording album

00:00 Nov/30/1999

There's bad news and good news. Firstly on the more negative side, Soulwax have cancelled their shows at Secret Garden Party and Sonar. Then again, people shouldn't be too sad. Those expecting to see the Soulwax live act, will be treated to DJ sets by the heads of the electronic band, brothers David and Stephen Dewaele as 2manydjs. So why were the gigs called off?

The background was revealed on 2Manydjs Facebook profile:

"We've decided to postpone our Soulwax shows over the summer so we can get our new record properly finished and have it ready for release soon. Sorry to all of you who were looking forward to seeing us but we'd rather give you a good show and a good album than rushed versions of both. The good news is 2manydjs will replace some of the shows. We look forward to seeing you all this summer!"

So fans shouldn't be too sad. It's more than respectable that the group is taking time to prepare the new album and live show. Sonar Festival at its 20th birthday this year, and will run through June 13 14 and 15, seeing 2manydjs filling in. Ticket details are available here . Same goes for Secret Garden Party which will run between July 25 and 28. Tickets are also still available here.

The DJ-set won't be the same as Soulwax live show, but looking at one of their performances earlier this year at Razzmatazz, that is not a necessarily bad thing!
