如果要选出90年代最成功的跳舞音乐组合，Basement Jaxx会是其中之一，因为其经典大碟;Remedy;已经在好几个Best of the Nineties Charts 上榜上有名。他们的音乐，更被外间套上"Punk Garage"这个新标签。 Basement Jaxx的成员Felix Burton和Simon Ratcliffe是在一个船上的派对中认识的。他们同样热爱一些Deep,Funky及Sexy的American House之音，结果他们一拍即合。并在南伦敦的Brixton区一间墨西哥式餐厅的地库，开始他们的DJing生涯。他们的DJset，是不受任何音乐疆界所限制的，你可以找到House,Funk,R&B,R&B,Regga,Latin,Garage,Drum'n' Bass 及Hip Hop等不同元素。 到1944年，Basement Jaxx创立了自己的音乐厂牌Atlantic Jaxx并推出自己的作品。他们的第三张EP Fly Life ,更成为流行榜的大热作品。结果，Basement Jaxx被招揽到著名的独立厂牌XL旗下（旗下的著名artist还有Prodigy及Roni Size).因为加入到大厂牌旗下，他们更能全心全意制作他们的作品。在1999年夏天面世的首张大碟“Remedy"并没有令众人失望，令Basement Jaxx获得三个Brit Awards的提名。另外，他们更在Miami Winter Music Conference 中获得”Best Newcomers"及"Best Dance Act"的获项。所以，Basement Jaxx被外界誉为把House Music带到下世纪的新人类，实在当之无愧。 by John Bush The production duo of Simon Ratcliffe and Felix Buxton released several of Britains most respected and enjoyable progressive house anthems of the 90s from their base in South London. Before they met (at a Thames riverboat party organized by Buxton), Ratcliffe grooved to the deep Latin funk of War and George Duke while Buxton was turned on to Chicago house. The pair formed Atlantic Jaxx Records in 1994 and was undoubtedly honored to count among fans of their first release none other than DJ legend and Basement Jaxx influence Tony Humphries, who played Da Underground from the EP on his New York mixshow consistently during 1994-1995. For their second release, Ratcliffe and Buxton recruited vocalist Corrina Josephs, who later became practically a member of the team herself. The 1995 single Samba Magic was picked up for distribution by Virgin, and in time, Basement Jaxx was drawing praise from all corners of the American and British house community as one of the top house production units. The pair spent much of 1996 working on remixes (for the Pet Shop Boys, Roger Sanchez, and Lil Mo Yin Yang among others), then released a third Basement Jaxx EP. One track from the EP, Flylife, became a Top 20 hit in England after being re-released by Multiply in mid-1997, and the single proved one of the most popular anthems of the year on the worldwide club scene. Late that year, Ratcliffe and Buxton released a compilation of their most crucial Atlantic Jaxx sides. After being courted by several major labels, Basement Jaxx signed to the independent XL Recordings (also home to the Prodigy) and readied their debut full-length, Remedy, for a 1999 release. Second album Rooty followed two years later, an outgrowth of the duos similarly named club night. 2003s Kish Kash and 2006s Crazy Itch Radio followed, while Singles was a well-timed stopgap release between the two albums.
