Radio Soulwax 'Part of the Weekend Never Dies'


Part Of The Weekend Never Dies is a documentary showcasing the talents of four Belgians (Soulwax) who programmed and promoted, DJ’d, and played live alongside an array of their friends and some of the most exciting acts in modern music, traveling relentlessly across the globe under the banner of “Radio Soulwax.”
Recording over 120 shows with one camera in Europe, Japan, US, Latin America, and Australia with acclaimed director Saam Farahmand, their efforts resulted in two films and an album.

The film includes 2manydj's and Soulwax’s Nite Versions live footage, and also features James Murphy, Nancy Whang, Erol Alkan, Tiga, Justice, Busy P, So-Me, Peaches, Kitsuné & Klaxons in behind-the-scenes footage and interviews. The second is a live film that captures perfectly the blissful and beautiful sonic malevolence of Soulwax’s Nite Versions blitzkrieg. The live album captures the energy and excitement of this whirlwind tour.
While dance and rock bands may have been unlikely bedfellows, there is something wonderful about Soulwax, a schizophrenic ball of ideas and sound, constantly evolving into new shapes, complications and identities.

Part Of The Weekend Never Dies is purely and simply a documentation of four guys making people forget everything. It captures the uniqueness of what Radio Soulwax is and was to people all around the world—not just the euphoria and revelation, but the adoration of music, the party and the crescendo, and most importantly sharing and friendship and as far removed from the notion of the superstar DJ as you could get.
