Basement Jaxx have become a world renowned group, on the strength of their unique take on house & dance music. They started out releasing a few independent singles, & then hit worldwide acclaim with the 1999 release of ‘Remedy’. With massively popular singles like ‘Rendez-Vu’ & ‘Red Alert’, their success was cemented. 3 more full length albums followed, with a greatest hits, & 2 rarities compilations thrown in, they also started scoring some primo remixing gigs.

Their remix of ‘4 My People’ by Missy Elliott became the single version released overseas, with very popular remixes also done for Justin Timberlake, N.E.R.D., & Lady Sovereign. Their live shows have also gotten so popular, that when Kylie Minogue had to back out of the Glastonbury music festival, Basement Jaxx were tapped to replace her (& even paid tribute by doing a cover of ‘Can’t Get You Out of My Head’).

The Jaxx will be returning to the studio very soon to begin work on their 5th album. Good luck guys! Oh & BTW… I [heart] Basement Jaxx!!!!!
