Never miss another 'Basement Jaxx' show
Basement Jaxx + Clean Bandit
It’s been nearly two years since we last heard from long-standing godfathers of UK house, Basement Jaxx. Now the legends of dance music are getting back to what they have always done best with a newly announced set of UK tour dates this winter.
These live dates follow the unveiling of their new single 'Back 2 The Wild', which is released on 20th May through 37 Adventures. This new track is quintessentially Jaxx - a super heavy weight groove featuring vocals from Korean singers Miss Emma Lee and Baby Chay, as well as tribal horns recorded in Kenya.
This event takes place at O2 Academy Birmingham, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
They'd been about for a little while (remember 'Fly Life'?) but anyone on the dancefloor in 1999 would have found the funky progressive house rhythms of monster club hit 'Red Alert' irresistible. Producers, remixers and DJ duo Simon Ratcliffe and Felix Buxton had arrived, and followed 'Red Alert' with a string of other club anthems and Top 10 hits including 'Romeo' and 'Where's Your Head At?'. 2014 sees the release of their first new album in five years; 'Junto'.
Basement Jaxx tour dates
A classico-electronical collective. The core members Jack Patterson (bass, keyboards), Grace Chatto (cello) and Milan Neil Amin-Smith (violin) met while studying as undergraduates in Cambridge, later joined by brother Luke Patterson (drums). Their unique take on dance music sees beats collide with classical, where Baroque meets house and pop. Classing themselves as an 'electroquartet', and featuring a string of guest vocalists, they have been described as the new Disclosure with a chamberpop bent.
