Belgian rock band Soulwax was formed by singer Stephen Dewaele and his guitarist brother David along with bassist Stefaan Van Leuven and drummer Piet Dierickx. Soulwax started out as an alternative rock group with strong electronic influence, but quickly switched to creating full-on EDM and Dance-Punk.However, Soulwax is best known for the extensive quantity of popular remixes they have created. They have remixed everyone from The Rolling Stones to Justice to MGMT. They have done this under both their traditional name and their alter ego, 2 Many DJ's (2manydjs).Soulwax is also known for "Radio Soulwax," a website that broadcasts their remixes mixed together as a 24/7 ad-free internet radio station. This station also features an odd visual component based on the album covers of the original records.
