Basement Jaxx

A chance meeting at a Riverboat party on the Thames in London united the two DJs in a partnership that's taken them from cult club heroes to mainstream hit-makers to festival headliners. With a mutual love of deep techno, funk grooves and Chicago house, they ran their own highly popular club nights, before releasing debut album Remedy (1999) which, propelled by the hits Red Alert, Rendez-Vu and Bingo Bango, made Number 4 in the UK album charts. Singles Romeo and Where's Your Head At? brought more success and they band collaborated with guest singers Dizzee Rascal, Siouxsie Sioux and Lisa Kekaula on third studio album Kish Kash (2003). When breast cancer forced Kylie Minogue to pull out of Glastonbury Festival in 2004, they triumphantly took on her headlining slot, using live musicians to turn the main stage into a muddy carnival of dance pop. They've also become highly sought after as re-mixers, lending their talents to Daft Punk, Missy Elliot and Justin Timberlake.
