The brothers Dewaele (pictured) have been showing increased activity as of late with their legendary Soulwax project having released a remix of Jungle’s Julia back in May, and now remixing Tame Impala’s Let It Happen.
Elongating Let It Happen to a little over nine minutes, the remix saturates itself in the band’s quintessential psychedelic guitar work while Soulwax’ hypnotic bass chords dance in the background like a fervent disco mirage. Soulwax have stayed true their own nuanced style without disrupting Tame Impala’s ambling nature, and keep lead singer Kevin Parker’s vocals as a mesmerizing focus.
Until recently, Soulwax has remained fairly quiet as far as production goes. Their remix of Metronomy’s Love Letters was released a year ago, while other originals date back as far as two years and more. The Dewaeles have not been idle though, focusing on their 2manyDJs moniker and the Despacio disco soundsystem alongside LCD Sounsystem’s James Murphy.
We can only hope that these recent remixes hint at more originals from Soulwax in the near future, but only time will tell. Hear more from Soulwax on their SoundCloud here.
