Rooty





Critical darlings and purveyors of dance floor insanity, Basement Jaxx (Felix Burton and Simon Ratcliffe) have come roaring back on to the scene with an album that is guaranteed to move some asses this summer! Rooty is the follow-up to their acclaimed debut Remedy that spawned anthems that brought house music to the masses. Rooty continues to blend elements of house, R&B, garage, funk and punk into a masterpiece of pure, slutty, body-jacking brilliance. From the first track ëRomeoí and ëJust One Kissí you know you are in for a good time by its bouncy R&B vocals and bubbly beats. Your hands wonít be in the air for the whole album, as they get down, dirty and dark on tracks like, ëGet Me Offí and ëWhereís Your Head At". They also deliver trippy, luscious little ditties like ëBroken Dreamsí, ëAll I Knowí and ëFreakaludeí featuring sped-up vocals courtesy of jackmaster Derrick Carter. House-heads may scoff at its commercial-pop accessibility but there is just no denying the feeling you get from a dose of Rooty! Basement Jaxx are here to unite our asses in once common groove ñ prepare to be united!
