Biography

Basement Jaxx (Felix Burton and Simon Ratcliffe) both play and create exuberant, catchy, dance music with reggae and latin overtones. Chances are, if you've been anywhere near a dancefloor in the last decade you've heard Basement Jaxx.

Their phenomenal debut album Remedy was hailed as one of the most important records of the '90s and has influenced artists from many genres. They have continued to win acclaim from press, fans and club luminaries with tunes such as Flylife, Do Your Thing, Where’s Your Head At?, Jump N’ Shout, Rendez-Vu, Plug It In, and Romeo.

One of the first truly international dance acts who crossed from underground to chart success, Basement Jaxx have toured and played live around the world and worked with some of the biggest names in music including Missy Elliott, Justin Timberlake and N*E*R*D.

Named after the parties the pair started hosting in Brixton, their DJ sets are a mixture of disco, techno, flamenco, garage, breakbeat, funk-garage-Latin-jazz... an journey through the greatest dance sounds ever invented.
