2ManyDJs are Belgian brothers David and Stephen Dewaele, who, when not DJ’ing perform as Soulwax. In 2002 the DJ’s released the now classic mashup album, As Heard on Radio Soulwax Pt. 2. Tracking down over one hundred samples, the duo cut & pasted together pieces of songs by Sly & the Family Stone, The Stooges, 10cc, Destiny’s Child, New Order, Emerson, Lake & Palmer and others for quite the booty shaking, dance floor rocking experience. While 2ManyDJs have mastered the art of audio manipulation, they too work with video and recently shared an extraordinary mashup video where hundred of album cover and other images collide with each other.
Writing about the video in Digital Arts, Neil Bennett says:
Set to the full hour of the album, the animators under director and producer Glyn Peppiatt have taken the album and single covers of the music included in the mix and done some silly things to them with After Effects’ Puppet tool (I’m guessing) and by cutting them up and animating the elements to the beat. There’s also some ludicrous mouth animation, and some knowing use of decidedly cheesy effects.
