Basement Jaxx to make UK show return

Basement Jaxx are reportedly going to front a number of big shows in the UK this year.

The electronic dance duo – made up of Felix Buxton, 53, and Simon Ratcliffe, 51 – formed in 1994, and the pair are looking to put on several big shows in the UK to mark their 30th anniversary.

An insider told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: “Basement Jaxx got their name because of the club nights they put on in ­Brixton in 1994.

“They didn’t release their debut album for another five years but for Felix and Simon, this year celebrates 30 years from where their music first started.

“They are planning in the coming weeks to announce a handful of massive shows to mark the milestone.

“Last year Basement Jaxx only played a couple of times in the UK, and this will give fans more of a chance to see a full live show.

“It is massive for Felix and Simon and they’re really excited about what they have planned.”

The source also suggested that the pair – whose latest studio album ‘Junto’ launched a decade ago – weren’t necessarily planning on making new music but would be willing to consider getting back in the studio if the gigs prove to be successful.

They continued: “If the shows are as successful as they think they might be, they could start working on some new music which would be really special.

“It’s something they’ve been talking about for a while.”

In 2019, the ‘Red Alert’ chart-toppers revealed they wanted to work on a new album to drown out the “shallow and stupid” modern pop music offerings.

Speaking to The Herald Sun, Simon said: “We’ve been living in a dumbed-down culture for ages, pop music has been so shallow and stupid.”

Felix added: “Now feels like a good time to come back and funnily enough club music has gone back to what we were doing at the beginning.”
