 Basement Jaxx @ Brixton Academy, London : gig review
Arriving at 8:30, we discovered that local boys Basement Jaxx were not due on stage until 10:45 - an unprecedented line-up of DJs, including Soul II Soul's Jazzie B and, in between his two sets, Wookie, were scheduled to entertain an audience that was as mixed as it was up for a dance.
Having never before been to a Basement Jaxx Rooty - their own Brixton club-night-in-a-pub from which the new album derives its name - I was unsure if this level of musicianship was to be expected or not, but, being used to one or at the most two support acts, I was pleasantly surprised.
The Jaxx's genre-smashing beats offered us breakbeat, two step and hard house in swift rotation, the dancers resplendent in everything from feathers to swimming costumes showing how it should all be done.

 Basement Jaxx: Rooty - PopMatters Music Review
The Jaxx got their start as warehouse DJs in Brixton, spinning Chicago house and UK garage, both of which figure heavily in the album's opening track, "Romeo".

And that, finally, is my biggest beef with Basement Jaxx -- every time they lock into a great groove, they have a compulsive need to wink through it or derail it altogether with a heavy dose of old-school hokum.

You've got one life, you wanna live it now." Although Basement Jaxx were founded by Ratcliffe and Buxton some seven years ago, the worldwide success of Remedy and its fun-loving singles "Rendez-Vu," "Red Alert" and "Bingo Bango" placed them in the upper echelon of dance-music stardom.
But rather than make an album studded with the hottest vocalists of the day and aimed at the pop stratosphere, the Jaxx stuck to their guns and did their own thing.

 Basement Jaxx: Remedy --- Ink Blot Magazine   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)
Dabbling in garage, salsa, ragga, soul, and disco, Basement Jaxx quickly became the underground house name to drop, even as releases like "Flylife" went overground.

Underground Sound: Basement Jaxx 'Jump N' Shout' with pure rapture on their exotic new album.
When the late-'80s/early-'90s promise of e-fueled dance-floor communion soured, the willful infantilism of rave music and the prefab soul of mainstream house started seeming either cheesy or perverse, and drum 'n' bass, with all its dystopian and military iconography, appeared to be the most honest music of the decade.
As the Basement Jaxx show, though, rapture can be just as real as rupture.
