They claim to be on the run from Interpol, that ‘annoying music is way too prevalent at the moment,’ and that they’re looking forward to a new digital version of the washboard.
But hopefully 2ManyDjs, the DJ alter-egos of the Belgian electronic rockers Soulwax, will be able to evade capture long enough to perform their spectacular show to the Blissfields festival tonight.
Brothers David and Stephen Dewaele, who are 2ManyDjs, have been busy – they’ve already launched their new Despacio project with former LCD frontman James Murphy at Glastonbury, and wowed crowds at Sonar in Barcelona.
And next month they’ll be back in Hampshire for Portsmouth’s own Victorious Festival.
They have also recently finished their Radio Soulwax project, which has seen them posting 24 hours of audio-visual mixes online.
They said: ‘We hoped to become insanely wealthy from it, but as we gave it away for free that was always going to be difficult. We’re not sure what we hoped to achieve other than just to try something new and different that could be consumed with all these magnificent modern gadgets. Judging it on the vast amount of downloads and views it had we couldn’t have be happier with the response.’
And as to what music inspires them: ‘Good music. Always good music.’
Today at Blissfields, which is at Vicarage Farm near Winchester, 2ManyDjs will close the event, after sets from Hercules & Love Affair, Chloe Howl, Melt Yourself Down, Moulettes and many more.
Tickets are £53 for today. Go to blissfields.co.uk
