Last week Basement Jaxx fans were brought some very exciting news.
Electronic dance chart toppers Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe have announced that they will be touring the UK this winter touching down in several cities across the country. This November and December the duo will perform at:
Sheffield O2 Academy, (Nov 29nd)

Cambridge Corn Exchange, (Dec 8th)
Plymouth Pavilion, (Dec 9th)

The news comes after the release of the Londoners new album ‘Junto’ which is available for download on August 18th. It is the double-act’s first album for five years since their 2009 release ‘Zephyr’.
Basement Jaxx, who rose to fame in the 1990’s with such hits as Red alert, Where’s Your Head At and Good Luck will also be playing at a small handful of festivals this summer including Rob Da Banks’ Bestival.
On top of that, a lucky few thousand could be fortunate enough to see a first live glimpse of the group’s new album at Shakedown Festival, this weekend in Brighton.
Indeed, on 19th July the Jaxx will bring their iconic full live show to the sunny south coast.
Rumour has it the performance will include a squad of singers who will be performing a catalogue of their hugely infectious, classic and well-loved tracks along with a dazzling lighting display.
Shakedown, which started off in 2012 has since outgrown its original location of Stamner Park and this year an estimated 20,000 people are heading down to the much larger Waterhall venue.
Other acts on the bill include Garage Legend DJ EZ, breakthrough pop group Gorgon City and old school ravers Groove Armada.
Next Saturday however is all about the Brixton-born innovators of ingenious dance anthems who will be getting the Brighton masses to Jump and Shout long in to the night.
