New Album Alert - Bassment Jaxx - Junto

Summer is coming and the Bassment Jaxx are back. Let's get this party started…

Globally revered as innovators and leading lights of their genre, Basement Jaxx blew the lid off the dance music scene of the late 90's with their ground breaking albums Remedy, Rooty and Kish Kash. Each of these records produced monster singles such as Red Alert, Where's Your Head At and Good Luck that crossed over from dance to pop audiences and led to the band winning a Grammy for "best dance album" in 2004.

The duo of Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe are back with Junto, a genre-hopping musical roller-coaster that showcases the band's legendary inventiveness, irresistible songwriting and production smarts. Spanish for 'together', the concept behind Junto is one of unity and soulfulness, fusing dance music's sub-genres into one cohesive multi-flavored confection.

It's a bold, boisterous, brilliant album full of amazing guest vocal performances, richly layered production and the irresistible sense of groove that has set them apart from the very beginning. Early teaser tracks Unicorn a spectacular retro-house jam, and Mermaid Of Salinas, a Latin-infused party anthem, are already topping tastemaker DJ playlists around the world.

The jewel in the crown will be the mighty single Never Say Never featuring the soulful tones of UK newcomer ETML, which is primed to explode in clubs and at dance radio and has a chorus that is destined to be become one of the season's most memorable refrains.

The boys are back, let's get junto. Check out the new single below and grab your copy on iTunes now..!
