Опубликовано: 6 мар. 2012 г. Basement Jaxx - You Don't Know Me (2006) feat.

Basement Jaxx are an English electronic music duo consisting of Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe. The pair got their name from the regular night club they held in their hometown of Brixton, London, UK. They first rose to popularity in the mid 1990s. As the British Hit Singles & Albums book duly noted "they surfaced from the underground house scene, are regular transatlantic club chart-toppers and won the BRIT Award for Best Dance Act in 2002 and 2004".

The Singles is the first greatest hits album by English electronic music duo Basement Jaxx, released on 21 March 2005 via XL. The album contains two new songs, "Oh My Gosh" and "U Don't Know Me", which were both released as singles. Do Your Thing" was previously included in the 2001 Rooty album, but with the release of this compilation album, the single was re-released in the UK after the two aforementioned singles.

To date, no Basement Jaxx album has sold 40k in the states. This can't be blamed entirely on the suits. Unlike in England and continental Europe, disco did die here, and it's been a long, estranged trip for dance acts ever since. We Americans generally like our dance music subsumed into a singer, even if that singer is Rick Astley. From their inception, Basement Jaxx have been a house act reconciling with song, and it's been a rather protracted process. Which is a fucking shame, because their essential tension (and what makes The Singles, a best-of that substitutes for their bi-yearly new album this year, so great) is between dancefloor compulsive repetition and hook-crammed P-O-P. The obvious point of comparison is P-Funk, and indeed Brother George lords over the whole . axx project like a spirit guide.

Scars is the fifth studio album by English electronic music duo Basement Jaxx. It was released in September 2009 by record labels XL, Ultra and Interscope. Three singles were released from the album: "Raindrops", "Feelings Gone" and "My Turn". The track "Twerk" features lyrics adapted from Michael Sembello's song "Maniac".

Nope, ‘Basement Jaxx: The Singles’ just doesn’t feel quite right as an artefact, which is how all Best Ofs must be judged. In fact, it seems like a small betrayal of the very wonderful, transitory nature of dance music. No dance act should stick around long enough to merit a Best Of. In the time it takes to bang out ten singles, you ought to be onto your fifth incarnation – your fifteenth if you’re the Aphex Twin. And this more or less represents the good-to-bad-ratio for the entire album. For every ‘Plug It In’, a terrifically ramshackle Prince-style funk workout that does as it pleases with bug-eyed glee, there’s a ‘Good Luck’ (a formless, overwrought meshing of poptronica and rock that is clearly a stab at Proper Songwriting) and a ‘Samba Magic’, which is samba by Ikea, with the parts all present and correct but all the flourish and.

Basement Jaxx – The Singles is both a timely reminder of just how much the Jaxx have turned dance music inside out and the nonchalant ease with which they continue to drop new ever more exciting sub-cultural car crashes on airwaves and dancefloors around the world. Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist - Artist (Sample). 30.

Alternately, as some might argue, several years passed before Basement Jaxx decelerated enough for anyone sharing a vaguely similar stylistic slant to meet up with them. Even if 2003's Kish Kash wasn't bubbling over with new ideas and previously unfathomable contortions and combinations of old ideas, as Remedy and Rooty had done before, the Jaxx still did it better than anyone else, melting down 30 years of dance and pop, simultaneously casting fresh looks on both forms. They are to house what Miles Davis is to jazz, what Chuck Berry is to rock, what Public Enemy is to rap.
