About James Murphy
James Murphy is one of this century’s key figures in music. As founder and principal of LCD Soundsystem, he created three of the most acclaimed albums of the new millennium and fronted unforgettable live shows that concluded in 2011 with the sold out near-four-hour Madison Square Garden extravaganza documented on THE LONG GOODBYE album and SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS documentary. But Murphy is much more than a musician – he is also founder of the DFA label, a renowned producer whose recent credits include Arcade Fire’s #1 album REFLEKTOR, an in-demand remixer and of course, a constantly in-demand DJ.
Brothers David and Stephen Dewaele are famous worldwide for their alias 2manydjs. Their album “As Heard On Radio Soulwax Pt. 1” completely revolutionized the dance music landscape in the early 2000s, for its imaginative mixture of artist and genres from all eras. They have played to crowds of a hundred thousand people whilst touring their live visual show “Under the Covers” and dj sets. These worldwide shows were documented in the feature film “Part of the Weekend Never Dies”. As Soulwax, they were musical pioneers remixing their own album ‘Any Minute Now’ into ‘Nite Versions’. In 2011 they tore up the rule book again with the creation and curation of Radio Soulwax as a Live touring event, an app and an online radio station. This project was the ultimate synthesis of sound and vision, producing 24 one hour mixes with accompanying visuals based on the artwork of the original records used within each mix. The app has had to date over 600k downloads.
