Basement Jaxx : Romeo

Score

The Jaxx release their finest single to date, a taster for forthcoming LP Rooty...

Romeo’ is a fantastic single from a good album, ‘Rooty’; a frisky slip of spicy feminine pop perfectly tailored for maximum radio rotation. British R&B starlet Kele Le Roc provides the vocal, Basement Jaxx deliver the jerky carnival soul, and several thousand new fans will be seduced by its addictive quality, unaware that Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe were once penniless underground house producers. Never complacent and always striving to be inventive, if it feels good, the Jaxx say, do it.
