It is one of the eight radio stations on Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online that don't feature commercials or news breaks, the others being WorldWide FM, East Los FM, FlyLo FM, The Lab, Los Santos Underground Radio, IFruit Radio and Music Locker Radio.
The radio will automatically switch to this station if the player tunes to West Coast Talk Radio and then loses the signal of that station.
GTA V's beta audio files, as well as the original radio mix from the PlayStation 3 developer build, reveal several songs that were planned to appear on the station but were not included in the final version.
- Ann Steel - My Time (1979)
- Daniel Avery feat. Kelly Lee Owens - Drone Logic (2012)
- In Flagranti feat. Amypop - Nonplusultra (2004)
- Matias Aguayo - Niños (2011)
- Robolledo - Steady Gear Rod Maschine (2011)
- Sparks - When I'm With You (Instrumental) (1980)
- This radio station plays during all Hao Street Races.
- It is played in the Oeuvre Gallery and can be heard outside.
- The track "Synrise (Soulwax Remix)" by Goose was featured in the GTA Online: Cunning Stunts trailer.
- The track "Plush (Jacques Lu Cont Remix)" by Tiga was featured in the Cunning Stunts: Special Vehicle Circuit trailer.
- During development of the game, Soulwax FM was known as Radio Soulwax or RSWX, as seen on the beta radio wheel.
- This is the fifth radio station in the series that plays Techno music, since the appearance of The Fix FM in Grand Theft Auto.
- This is one of the two radio stations that wasn't updated for the enhanced version of GTA V, along with East Los FM.
- The song El Sucu Tucu appears to be an edited version by Soulwax, since it features more bass drops and samples. Some are partially from the song before, The Strange Art, but not all.
- Some of the songs were given higher pitches or faster tempos compared to their original versions. This can be easily compared when you listen to the radio station then listening to each of the songs in the Rockstar Editor music selection. It is most likely due to the fact that Soulwax FM is a set where all songs transition to one another in similar sound, keys or tempo, and with some songs slowly transitioning in audio when a song is about to end. Song changes of each song include:
- Stock by Palmbomen being a faster tempo, being a remix of the original more slower song.
- Fatal Error by Fatal Error having more drumming and having cymbal clashing.
- Let's Beam Him Up by Supersempfft being more higher pitched and more shorter than the other songs.
- Mingi by Mim Suleiman has the last synth-like keys from "Let's Beam Him Up" which continue to play throughout the song.
- El Sucu Tucu by Matias Aguayo having more bass and keys.
- Naive Response by Daniel Avery is now low pitch in tune, and is also called "Naive Reception" in game.
- Tryouts by Zombie Nation is low pitch in tune.
