It was here when I used to go out every month, to dance in Paradiso. Dance to music I loved and where I discovered many tracks of the new beat era. They inspired me a lot and made me think about how important music is to me and my friends. How great it is to get together and enjoy records. It was also the time that I started to collect records myself, as I was working in record stores, this was a good way to get new and old music.
Check out their visual remake of the infamous “As heard on Radio Soulwax pt 2“, which was conceived back in 2002.
“12 yrs, 2 months and 24 days later, 114 tracks are re-united in 1 single hour of visual mayhem,” Soulwax said in a statement. “As heard on the radio becomes As seen on the app..is this technically Pt III? Probably. Who’s counting? Who cares? Just watch it.”
In my opinion, this is a neverending mash up where most people of my generation have danced to really hard and if they where too young, they will dance on it now, since it is a timeless soundtrack. Since everybody has a smartphone, it goes fo much easier and faster to share music you want to play for your friends. The mix is still hitting you on the head with snippets and edits of tracks we all know from some era, disco, pop, electro, punk and so on. Whatever kind of music you like this, it is a beautiful way of creating something special with music and make people dance. That is a glorious thing. You should try it…
