Product Description

Product Description

Soulwax always seem to take two steps ahead on the music scene and their new album Nite Version is no exception to this statement. Nite Version contains some tracks that may sound familiar to clubbers. The Nite Version of "E-Talking" (one of the biggest club hits of 2004) and the kawasaki dub of "NY Lipps" stand among new tracks such as "Another Excuse" (A Collaboration with DFA) and their cover of Daft Punk’s "Teachers". From Electro to Techo, from bombastic rock to disco, this record guarantees to keep you moving. The Album is mixed by de Dewaele Brothers (Soulwax/2 many DJ's).

5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously funked up... 13 Dec 2005
Format:Audio CD
Soulwax a.k.a 2 many DJ’s, that confusing posse who are not quite a band, not quite DJ’s (they are in fact both) have done it again. Ever since seeing them play one of the dirtiest funkiest electro sets I’ve ever heard, and successfully turn Cardiff Union into a sweaty grimy dance haven, I’ve been on a Soulwax mega-mission, hunting down tracks left right and centre. You may have been disappointed with ‘Any Minute Now’ released in August of last year as a follow up to their huge success ‘As Heard on Radio Soulwax’, but this re-released, re-cut, re-mashed, and re-energised album, aptly named ‘Nite Versions’ will definitely re-work them back in to your good books.
‘Nite Versions’ is a masterful compilation of their characteristic electro-techno sounds boiled up with some proper good electric guitar and some seriously phat bass lines. Like a cross between Tiga and Duran Duran, these tracks harness some momentously deep galvanisation of the dance variety. Twisting through palisades of the dance music genres, this compilation is a representation of all things we love about Soulwax and more.‘Nite Versions’ reads like a juicy novel, from the re-blended version of Daft Punks ‘Teachers’ to the reminiscent cut of their house smash NY Excuse caressing its way through NY Lipps then gently coaxing its way through the final track, ‘Another Excuse’.
For all the house and breaks, electro, and techno fans out there (and everyone else besides) i seriously recommend this album!

...and bought turntables.
I love Soulwax and am enjoying following them as they continue to mutate and try and cross-pollinate their riffy rocky stuff with their clubby tastes.
But although this worked well on the album Any Minute Now here it is a bit more hit and miss. The fun/problem with Soulwax when they go electronic is figuring out where they are coming from. Are the often quite simple/basic sounds they use the result of diving deep into electronica, getting bored of a lot of it and therefore deciding on something chunky and simple? Or is it just that they haven't got very far in the first place?
Listening to some of the music they mix in their 2manydjs guise you would assume the former. But looking at the music they have created themselves up till now maybe you would tend to the latter. And it does matter. Because guitar bands trying to do electronic stuff often sounds exactly like that - the wrong people in the wrong medium. The result is often tedious to listen to. Too much of this remix album strays into that territory.
But where they get it right there is some really interesting stuff. The tracks I would highlight are Slowdance, I love Techno and Krack. These keep the spirit of the original songs but give them a good electronic work over. Also the LCD remix of NY Excuse is class.
Worth a punt if you're a fan, and worth getting hold of the best tracks if you're not.

5.0 out of 5 stars NOW... That's what I Call Electro-rock 13 Jan 2006
By A. Otero - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Practically ignored by music criticism (even by indie critics), this record really makes everything DFA has produced sound like crap (by the way, I love DFA)... Soulwax has always been a rock band as oposed to their alias "2 many djs" that is used for electronic work, remixing and DJing. But this record takes the better of both names, Soulwax remixed (or re-created) their own songs and if that was not enough they open the album with an amazing rock cover of Daft Punks's "Teachers". 2manyDJS has also been known for their bastard pop tracks, and they do it here too in songs like "NY Lips" (sampling Funky town in a much more "funky" way than the original)... Potent beats and basslines are heard all over the songs, samples and lyrics are funny and fascinating.

My humble advice: buy this record... now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nite Or Day, You Are The One 8 Dec 2005
By The Wasp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In lieu of a new studio album, Soulwax have done the increasingly common thing and released a remix record to quench the public's thirst for new material. Remix releases can be nasty, barrel scraping affairs (just look at the recent Le Tigre compilation for proof), but in light of the critical hiding Any Minute Now copped upon its release in 2004, it's interesting to note the favourable attention Soulwax have attracted since NY Excuse was released earlier in the year in remixed form. Although that radio-friendly track doesn't make it to Nite Versions, there's two other versions of NY Excuse on offer, with NY Lipps incorporating a smattering of Lipps, Inc's classic disco cheese Funky Town to groovy effect. While second version Another Excuse is a DFA and Soulwax collaboration, sadly the gathering of minds looks better on paper than it sounds in reality, ensuring NY Lipps and its pots and pans percussion make for the better NY Excuse remix. Elsewhere on Nite Versions Soulwax's Dewaele brothers cover Daft Punk on album opener Teachers, completely reinvent E Talking save for a bassline and add an air of volatility to Compute via the use of a harpsichord.

As proven by their 2 Many DJs sideline, the Dewaeles know their way around a mix disc, with Nite Versions sampling LA Style's James Brown Is Dead on I Love Techno, adding Ultravox-style flourishes to Accidents And Compliments and seguing tracks with a perfect fusion.

Next up is their production role with Canada's Tiga, but for now Nite Versions satisfactorily keeps the interest in the Belgians high.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Can't Believe I Missed This 10 Oct 2006
By JBizzle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I don't know if anyone else thinks like me but the Electronic Dance scene has been a little stale as of late. Daon't get me wrong, I'm an electronic dance music fan through & through, just lately there hasn't been anything that's really jumped out at me. The minimal tech scene is getting waaaaaaaaaaay too much attention and nice, infectious, groovy, uplifting whatevers are no where to be found. Anyway, I'd heard of this album but never paid too close attention to it. I had no idea what I'd been missing. HOLY SH!T am I impressed, this is exactly whats been missing for the past couple years. I've been waiting for this for so long, yet here it was this whole time. From beginning to end this CD grabs hold & doesn't let go, simply amazing music from start to finish. Do all yourselves a favor and buy this CD, it's finally available domestically, there's no reason not to own it. You'll thank me later.

4.0 out of 5 stars Why is SOULWAX ignored by critics & consumers alike?! 22 Jan 2006
By G. Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I just don't get it - SOULWAX has been around since the 90s, when they released their "rock" debut (on the now defunct Almo Sounds), chock full of should-have-been radio hits, and then when while they got some attention for their "2 Many DJs" mash-up/remix bootlegs, when they return to a full-fledged band, as with last year's ANY MINUTE NOW, critcs & consumers alike barely took notice of that album's amazing writing, production, and sheer electro-rock power. Hopefully, "Nite Versions" (a cheeky title recalling when 80s bands like Duran Duran used to release "Nite Version" on 12" of singles for clubs) will garner more sales and attention for SOULWAX - the songs practically leap out of the speakers to grab your neck and turn you head and make you move. Can't wait to hear what they do TIGA on his upcoming "Sexor" debut...?
5.0 out of 5 stars Best Remix Album Ever! 25 Oct 2013
By THEoliveCELT - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is definitely the best remix album that I have ever heard! The original album is fantastic, but this album brings each song a new roll to assume. Each song is still identifiable with its original conception, but these remixes make you consider each song to be just as important, if not, more important than its original version. I would recommend this to anyone who likes music that is very danceable, groove-centered, powerful and quick to pick up on. Why haven't you bought this yet? Do so NOW!
