Basement Jaxx - 'Junto'

Basement Jaxx - 'Junto'

Basement Jaxx have spent years playing to huge numbers of sweaty people in fields around the world, yet their recorded output has been far from essential. Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe’s amped-up Brit house formula has barely changed since...

Basement Jaxx : The Singles

Basement Jaxx : The Singles

There's something not quite right about 'Basement Jaxx: The Singles’. It’s not the unnerving resemblance its artwork bears to the month’s other high-profile coffee table release, Stereophonics’ ‘Language. Sex. Violence. Other?’. Nor is...

Basement Jaxx : Plug It In

Basement Jaxx : Plug It In

The dance music crash of 2003 seemed to screw up the commercial prospects of Basement Jaxx 's fantastic 'Kish Kash' album, even though it was far too chaotic and barmy to be so reductively categorised. Nevertheless, they continue to release...

Basement Jaxx:  : Bristol Academy :   Wednesday 3 December

Basement Jaxx: : Bristol Academy : Wednesday...

Remember 2003? The year in which tight nylon shirts and 'proper' guitar music sounded positively cutting edge next to those hackneyed old sampled beats of 'yesterday's' electronic music? Well thank Christ that 2004 is nigh - giving us the...

Basement Jaxx : Kish Kash

Basement Jaxx : Kish Kash

Before the great superclub crash of 2001, Felix Burton and Simon Ratcliffe were the house duo even house music haters could love. Mainly because they never made straight house but fantastic ultra-pop belters like ‘Romeo’ and ‘Where’s...

Basement Jaxx : Get Me Off

Ooh, that sexy pant music just keeps on coming. Smart activity at XL, where someone has noticed last year's excellent 'Rooty' album prematurely featured some of the hot-under-the-collar electro that's currently so fashionable. It's hard to...

Homelands 2002  :  Winchester Matterley Estate

Homelands 2002 : Winchester Matterley Estate

It's been an unremarkable year for mainstream dance music. Bona fide anthems are scarce and club attendances low. Blazing sunshine and a three-day Golden Jubilee recovery ensure Homelands is as popular as ever, even if its line-up reflects the...

Basement Jaxx : Where's Your Head At?

Basement Jaxx : Where's Your Head At?

The shouty one from last summer's fine 'Rooty', now optimistically released to cash in on a projected heatwave for early December. Not a tune to increase Basement Jaxx 's reputation as Prince reborn in the bodies of two average blokes from...

Basement Jaxx : London Brixton Academy

Basement Jaxx : London Brixton Academy

Couldn't get to Basement Jaxx's 'secret' club monthlies? Well, no matter, because the real 'Rooty' experience is right here, still on the duo's South London home territory. The venue might be less than intimate, but it doesn't feel that way; by...

Basement Jaxx : Rooty

Basement Jaxx : Rooty

In our most far-fetched dreams, this is what London sounds like every day. Carnival seven times a week, stretching down every street. Twenty-four hours of sunshine, 365 days a year. A harmonious multicultural, genre-obliterating party where even...
