Soulwax - 'Is It Always Binary' (Official Video)

Follow by Email
Up close with Soulwax's gear-heavy live installation.  Earlier this year, Soulwax released From Deewee, an album recorded by the veteran Belgian band in a single take. The latest video to accompany the LP mirrors this one-take approach, getting up close and personal with the band's gear-heavy live installation, "Transient Program for Drums and Machinery". Recorded live in London by Bullion Productions' James Willis, the video for 'Is It Always Binary' is about as close as you can get to seeing Soulwax live without being in the same room. It's a taste of what to expect from their current tour, which closes out in December with a date in Manchester and two nights at London's Roundhouse. Tickets for that are available here: — Subscribe to FACT TV on Youtube: Website: Facebook: Twitter: Soundcloud: Instagram:

Comments from Youtube

Mark Philip : kraftwerk on steroids

A D : It's like they are using music to get to space.

Theo Martin : Melody from synths is Pantera’s Cowboys from Hell :D

Lukas Schwermann : Ahhh yeeesss, this was my favourite tune on the record, great to see them perform it. Unfortunatley, the mix in this one doesn't carry these fat drums, just as on the record. Still amazing anyway.

Joe Collins : I wonder how much all that gear would cost, cool tune though.

ddouble dutch : Love it. Some clever folk out there keeping me happy

Calin Petrescu : Must see LIVE!!!!!

Pai Sukatat : I find it ridiculous when somebody ask why they were playing live instruments. That question is not even logically sound. I saw them live in Tokyo 2008 without knowing who they are, since then I have been going to a lot of EDM festivals and enjoyed most of them but I never find anything close to the Soulwax experience.
