Soulwax have shared a brand new single titled ‘Essential 3’ ahead of the duo’s forthcoming album release next month.
The new ‘Essential’ LP is set to release on DEEWEE this June. Comprised of 12 tracks, the material heard on the album was originally produced back in 2017 for Soulwax’s BBC Essential Mix.
The Dewaele brothers, aka Soulwax, are the first artists ever to submit an entire hour’s worth of original music to the show platform. Speaking via a press statement the duo explained, “It felt like a challenge and something no-one had done. We loved the challenge of releasing a full record live on a radio show without people having any advance notice, and we always wanted to release it on DEEWEE after it was aired on Radio 1.”
