All Good presents 2MANYDJS
Thursday 8th December 2016


The Dewaele's brothers really need no introduction, having carved a massive place in the industry with their initial radio soulwax pt2 mix, which threaded together, as they say, all the best and funkiest bits from music from every genre they like. With their band soulwax they did much the same, by covering the songs they'd made previously but in a current dance floor friendly manner and by remixing music by other people to do exactly the same, this formula has seen the Dewaeles become figureheads of the dance music scene for years.
