It's been almost a decade since they've reinvented the mixtape or DJing in general with their groundbreaking compilation As Heard On Radio Soulwax Pt. 2 - which is why David & Stephen Dewaele were already presented with a Red Bull Elektropedia Vanguard Award in 2010.
Instead of repeating the same old DJ tricks for years to come, the brothers kept on buying and collecting records - resulting in an astonishing Radio Soulwax station and smart-phone app.
Whether it's American hardcore, Belgian new beat, Balearic disco or Brazilian psychedelica, the pair (and their creative team) box up cult classics in an audiovisual way that adds another level to the word 'übercool'.
That is why we are presenting them with a Special Vanguard Awards this year - for creating something truly remarkable and unique.
