This UK-based DJing and production duo comprises
Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe. Setting out to rediscover the original feeling of early Chicago house music they began by holding illegal parties in Brixton, south London in 1994. Starting in Ratcliffe's bedroom studio, they went on to release the club classic "Fly Life", an unusual blend of ragga and house, and the Ibiza anthem, "Samba Magic", besides various remixes, white labels and dub plates. Their cocktail of influences (rap, funk, ragga, disco and garage, all given a deep house twist) has been described as "punk garage". It has found a devoted audience in their native London and beyond (especially in Japan, Canada, Australia and the USA) where their DJing skills have been in demand.
In 1998, Basement Jaxx signed to highly successful XL Records (home of the Prodigy). Their first single for the label, "Red Alert", released in April 1999, received much praise and radio airplay in the UK and US and broke into the UK Top 5. The single's critical and commercial success was repeated by the follow-up, "Rendezvous", and the attendant 'Remedy'. The duo's faces were rarely not on the cover of hip music and style magazines during 1999 and many pundits were naming them as the saviours of truly inventive dance music.'Remedy' featured in most music critics "best of" polls at the end of the year. 'Rooty', titled after their underground parties in London, was released to even greater acclaim in July 2001. The album mixes classic house with lashings of punk, funk, R&B, jazz, hip hop, 2-step and pop songcraft in a mad genre crash that works like a charm..
"Get Me Off" (single relesead in 2002), taken from the critically-acclaimed album Root, features never before heard remixes by indie provacateuse Peaches , underground house stars Superchumbo, electro-latin fusionists Los Amigos Invisibles plus the Jaxx themselves.
