DEEWEE, the Belgian label run by Soulwax's Stephen & David Dewaele, are getting ready to put out their 50th release and they're making it a special one. Foundations is a three vinyl LP / two CD compilation featuring some of the labels best track, a few rarities, and brand new songs.

Opening Foundations is a brand new Charlotte Adigéry track, "Bear With Me (and I'll stand bare before you)." Charlotte made it during lockdown, working with her partner Bolis Pupul, and the swirling, danceable disco jam reflects our times. "This song is about being confined thus confronted to the way we live," says Charlotte. "The cruel irony of having the privilege of standing still, questioning and observing my life in all safety while others are fighting for theirs." She adds, "Bolis and I are making a time capsule, writing songs that tell the story of life in 2020. We believe 2020 has been such a cornerstone for the 21st century.” It's a terrific song and you can listen below.

Foundations also includes new tracks from former Klaxons frontman James Righton and Movulango, plus tracks from Soulwax, Future Sound Of Antwerp, Bolis Pupul, and more. The 27 tracks have been edited and sequenced by the Dewaeles and the packaging, created by Parisian firm Ill-Studio, is described as "a gorgeous artefact that collectors will love." Foundations is out May 7 via DEEWEE and you can preorder it now.
