Soulwax (or Too Many DJ's when on the 1s and 2s) are David and Stephen Dewaele and hail fron Ghent, Belgium. They've dabbled in mashups, and have made some pretty good albums, but they're notorious for their remixes, a mix of electronica, rock, punk and mashup - making them hot property on the remix circuit.

This is no exception - 2CDs jammed with some of Soulwax's most respected remixes since 2000 - and a mix by the duo just to show you they're really hot on the decks. Some of their hottest remixes are featured here, including the mashup for LCD Soundsystem; mixing Daft Punk tracks with a progressive electro sound, which works really well. Other gems include the mashup with 808 State and Human Resource - a rave group circa 1991; gritty and dirty remix of Kylie's pop classic "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" with it's rebelious guitar and live drums; DJ Shadow's classic from The Private Press "Six Days" - which to me is perfect anyway, but adds an interesting edge to the mix and Gorillaz' Dare - electro pop at it's best.

The second disk is a mix CD of all those tracks - beautifully crafted by the duo, proving that DJ mixes are not all commercial and full of popular music. This is how it was meant to be - a lot of DJs could learn from them, but not take their sound. It's like you're being taken on a journey, and the mix never fails to keep you entertained and inspired - they don't do things like everyone else and this makes Soulwax one of the best mash up groups since The Cut Up Boys.

If you love the remix, inovative DJ'ing and a mix that has had care and attention this is for you. Good idea for those of you who've never really knew good old DJ mixed CDs from 1994-1997 - shame a lot of big named clubs don't really go back to basics.

You need this in your collection!

This is one of the only electronica albums I have bought and enjoyed from beginning to end, it just doesn't let up. Soulwax are masters of the remix, highlights for me are Klaxon's Gravity's Rainbow, Justice's Phantom Pt.II and Kylie Minogue's Can't Get You Out Of My Head... but all of them are a stroke of genius.

If you want something to lift a party, get this you won't be disappointed!

The Dewaele brothers hail from Belgium and are better known as Soulwax or 2 many Dj's in the clubs. Famous for their eclectic and inventive Dj sets they have also amassed an impressive back catalogue of original productions and remixes for other artists. As the title suggests, most of those remixes are featured here as glorious 12" versions! Yay!

Most of the tracks are a frantic mash up of rock, techno and pop and the Soulwax sound is original and well produced. Particular highlights include an electro re-working of Gorillaz 'Dare', a bonkers rave remix of Robbie Williams' cover of 'Lovelight' and the dance version of Gossip's 'Standing in the Way of Control' as used on TV drama Skins marketing campaign. All the tracks on CD 1 are good except maybe the Sugababes 'Round Round' which I'm not keen on. CD 2 is a mix of all the tracks and a few others not included on disc 1 which is fine but for a real taste of 2 Many Dj's, buy 'As Heard On Radio Soulwax Part. 2'.

I have a few of 2 many dj's / Soulwax's albums and I must admit I expected more. A few tracks are great but it gets a bit self indulgent after a while. The free CD I got with Mixmag - "This is Radio Soulwax" is much better.

A stunning album. The remixes are quality - turning so so pop tracks into dance classics. Of particular note are the Sugababes Round Round (who'd have thought) and The Gossip.

Good mix of their remixes with the remix cd being better than the cd with the tracks, only given 4 star as its not as good as their radio soulwax stuff.
