In the first two decades of the 21st century, few have controlled the cultural weather quite like Stephen and David Dewaele.
The Dewaeles are familiar to millions as 2manydjs, a project which undoubtedly moved the needle for modern DJing. In 2002, after a string of creative broadcasts on radio while still known primarily as a rock band, they released As Heard on Radio Soulwax Pt.2 [AHORS].
This was a mix so giddy, creative, genre-blurring and downright fun that it could only be considered equal to a full-length album — which is exactly what happened, tallying Album of the Year and Album of the Decade accolades from the likes of The New York Times, Spin, The Face, Pitchfork and more, and shifting over half a million copies globally.
In late 2022, AHORS will also receive the deluxe reissue treatment, with Richard Young’s iconic original photography restored from the depths of legal trouble (thanks to a certain someone for allowing it). And for the first time ever, this groundbreaking mix will soon be made available on streaming platforms. The liberation of a piece of electronic music history to DSPs is sure to spark a new generation of fans.
2manydjs will perform alongside Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul, Kittin and other 2002-specific special guests to be announced. AHORS will get an as-yet-top secret resurrection for part of the night, and who knows? Paving the way for something brand new in 2023…
