  • Basement Jaxx in Cambridge

    Basement Jaxx

    After a four-year break, legendary dance duo and Brit Award winners Basement Jaxx returned with a new album, Junto, this autumn. Blending carnival vibes, bouncy beats and absorbing genres in typical Jaxx style, it’s been a triumphant return for the twosome. Even in an era where electro-dance seems to be in permanent residence at the top of the charts, they’ve been showing newcomers how it’s done – and we’d bet that this month’s Corn Exchange gig will be as lively and fun-packed as ever.

    Formed in Brixton in the early 1990s, Basement Jaxx, aka Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe, started out hosting a club night in Brixton, Rooty (which would later be used as the name of their second album), before going on to dominate the charts and festival circuit. Highlights included hits like Red Alert, Romeo, Oh My Gosh, Bingo Bango, Where’s Your Head Atand Rendez-Vu, to name just a handful, but it’s live on stage, with all the colour and energy they bring, that they really shine – and we'd put money on this being a total corker of a gig.

    See them in Cambridge on 8 December. Tickets are £27.50.
