BASEMENT JAXX SUPPORT DEMOCRACY IN SOUTH AFRICA

Recommended Posts

Guest web_norah

One of the UK's hottest dance exports, Basement Jaxx, are set to play in South Africa for the first time this autumn. The concerts are part of a series of events celebrating 10 Years of Democracy and Freedom in the country, with performances in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

The Jaxx - Simon Ratcliffe and Felix Buxton - started out in Brixton by putting on their own club nights at the Irish Camberwell Pub in 1994 and then working with Kelle Le Roche, Dizzee Rascal and Siouxsie Sioux of the '70's punk band the Banshees. The Jaxx's underground productions such as 'Samba Magic' and their 1999 debut album, Remedy, received tremendous worldwide support as they infused a new flavour into the already latent house music scene.

The Jaxx's musical style has always strived to retain the original Chicago house sound. As quoted in iafrica.com, "their recordings offer the aural equivalent of an over-crowded phone booth in an international train station at rush hour", and their latest album, Kish Kash, is no exception. Kish Kash has just been nominated for the Nationwide Mercury Prize/UK Album of the Year and the Jaxx recently won the Best UK Dance Act at the 2004 Brit Awards.

Come celebrate 10 years of democracy in South Africa with the Jaxx. They are scheduled to play Cape Town on 15th October and Johannesburg on 16th October
