The first Basement Jaxx song I ever heard was 'Good Luck' which featured the cracking rock-soul vocals of Lisa Kekaula (of The Bellrays ). I danced till I was legless. Basement Jaxx have a talent. They make people dance. You just can't help it. 'Good Luck' was on their third studio album Kish Kash . However their first two albums - Remedy and Rooty - were what caught people's attention - with chart-busters like 'Red Alert', 'Where 's Your Head At?', 'Romeo', 'Jump [...]
While we're on the topic of groups we've always heard of but never really listened to and don't know anything about, now might be a good time to mention Basement Jaxx . The London duo of Simon Ratcliffe and Felix Buxton (how are those for some British names?) originally began by holding a club night called Basement Jaxx at various locations before starting to record their own scheisse under that name. And as it turns out there are actually tons of Basement Jaxx tunes that I know (and that we all know), but I just never knew [...]
After a decade of making revolutionary house music, the Jaxx's Felix talks to PopMatters about working with Yoko Ono, taking that first step towards marriage, and the creation of their latest album, Scars For the past decade, UK dance duo Basement Jaxx has been a force to be reckoned with. Fully embracing the post-millennial generation with their brand of elaborate-yet-accessible house music, the Jaxx (Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe) helped define a new variety of music marketing by exposing (some would say exploiting) their hit "Where's Your Head At" through the mediums of television and film, [...]
Basement Jaxx featuring Lightspeed Champion - “My Turn” My new on-repeat track: Lightspeed Champion’s soothingly sad voice combines with Basement Jaxx’s dance rhythms. Like most great cocktails, the combination is even better than the sum of its already wonderful parts. The audio file was too big to post, but hey, just an excuse to share the retro-tastic video.
Since we are on break last week, we've got two videos to show you this week, if you haven't already seen them by now. First up is the most talked about video this week. It's the new one from the Flaming Lips featuring a whole lot of nude people riding bikes and dancing in the woods. Even Wayne Coyne strips and gets into the act. It's definitely NSFW, so we're just going to give you the link to it below. [...]

Saw this over at P&P . I've had Scars for some time now, but I guess I overlooked this single. Its a great track and the video has MTVU written all over it.
photo: mugley New Gaga . Her 'new' album; The Fame Monster was only meant to be a re-release but it seems Gaga isnt a fam of re-releases: "I think re-releases are unfair... It’s artists sneaking singles onto an already finished piece of work in an effort to keep the album afloat. Originally [my label] only wanted me to put out three songs and now it’s much more than that. It’s a new album’s worth of material." Never really liked Gaga, shes very good [...]
Cool video for a cool track. How come the coolest music videos are the ones that you'll never see on television? Oh well, one day there will be a P&P Channel. And it's gonna be fucking amazing. By the way, I've got all these crazy ideas (that I'm serious about). If you know people in the industry or whatever and want to make something happen, hit me up! Email me. Twitter . Cell Phone .

Video's Best Watched Stoned? Ok, so I flew to Montreal for the weekend to take in the Bloody Beetroots show put on by our friends @ Saintwoods.com. It featured opening DJ sets by two of the producers that were included on the Panther Remix EP that was put out as a result of our remix competition. Torro Torro , who's rendition of Panther ended up in Lee Mortimers top 10, played a set filled with their own unique edits and remixes and Golden Gloves got the crowd raging with an epic drop of [...]
Basement Jaxx han copulado con "Scars" un disco que se experimenta como si fuera un ácido en la punta de la lengua. Un colmenar rabioso de delirios psicóticos a ritmo de electrohouse, dubstep, ska, y pop emocional -según le de a la neurona descarriada- que se vive como un sueño o una pesadilla....
House music in Buzz Bands' house? Occasionally. Especially when it's as wildly eclectic as Basement Jaxx , the U.K. duo of Felix Buxton and Simon Radcliffe. The twosome has returned with "Scars," theirs sixth album and best since 2004's "Kish Kash," featuring all kinds of four-on-the-floor flavors and an impressive lineup of guests, including Yoko Ono, Kelis, Sam Sparro and, notably, Bellrays siren Lisa Kekaula. There's also Lightspeed Champion , aka Dev Hynes, who's out in front on the sweet "My Turn." The video, in all its dancing-bear glory, is the work of Tomek Ducki [...]
Basement Jaxx are back with a new video "My Turn" off their newest release Scars. They're in town tonight to drop the beats at Hard Haunted House along with Scenestar favorites Justice, Buraka Som Sistema and more at the Shrine...
Love his voice... great song! Basement Jaxx - My Turn (feat. Lightspeed Champion)
"My Turn" , directed by Tomek Ducki , takes the cake for cutest, most cuddly, fun loving video ... ever. I wish I had [bear] friends like that who could shake it so well.
