Basement Jaxx – Remedy

Basement Jaxx’s 1999 debut Remedy spawned four singles, Rendez-Vu, Red Alert, Jump N’ Shout and Bingo Bango, all classic tracks that still sound great. The album was released at a time when The Chemical Brothers and Fatboy Slim were the faces of electronic music, but Basement Jaxx were seen as a savior of dance music in England. The duo of Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe were hyped a great deal, with Rolling Stone writing “Basement Jaxx have spun the whole British dance scene upside down,” and “set the dance world on fire”. Basement Jaxx went from spinning house music weekly in the basement of a taco restaurant in Brixton to scoring three No. 1 hits on the U.S. dance charts with Remedy. Since I was trying to collect more dance tracks, I opted to just buy this album since it had so many great songs and really compelling artwork. Classic!
