Gabber might be notorious for its speed and manic energy, but when the speed is dropped down to 115 BPM, it sort of sounds vaguely soothing and almost (dare we say it) soulful? Soulwax, in their infinite wisdom, have compiled a one-hour mix of syrup-laced gabber versions, and twinned it with video footage of their gurning mates in tracksuits having a good old dance.
