"We've travelled around the world many times and we've seen how music can unite people - we want to embody that vision" -Felix Buxton, Basement Jaxx
Never known for their lack of ambition, Basement Jaxx return with nothing less than a mission to unite the world through the power of their unstoppable jaxx-ing groove. Now, ahead of their recently announced seventh studio album 'Junto', Basement Jaxx unveil their new single 'Never Say Never', due for release on August 18th via Atlantic Jaxx / Play It Again Sam.
'Never Say Never' is a supremely joyous and irresistibly feel good scorcher in waiting. Flecked with strings and studded with piano, the vocals come from south-London school-leaver sensation ETML. Like the rest of the album, 'Never Say Never' is the sound of Simon and Felix diving back into what they do best.
'Junto' - the full album - will come on the 25th August. With a title translating to mean 'together' in Spanish, it is a record that continues the Jaxx's unifying theme with dominating house-sounds. In it's entirety, it's a cheerfully inventive, explosively enjoyable album.
'Junto' - translation: 'Together'.
