Never miss another 'Basement Jaxx' show
Basement Jaxx + Shakka
With a new album on the way, it is no surprise that Basement Jaxx cannot wait to take their legendary show back on the road. The masters of dance head out on a full UK tour that will kick off in November, taking in venues across the country before they finish at London’s O2 Arena on the 11th December.
With a title translating to mean ‘together’ in Spanish, new album Junto promises to continue the Jaxx’s unifying theme with dominating house sounds whilst always remaining cheerfully inventive. Supremely joyous and irresistibly feel good, lead single ‘Never Say Never’ is a scorcher, and like the rest of the upcoming album, is the sound of Simon and Felix diving back into what they do best.
This event takes place at O2 Academy Leeds, which has achieved Bronze 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'.
