Nearly four years since their last official album release, British electronic dance music duo Basement Jaxx will release a new studio album, Junto, on August 26 via Atlantic Jaxx/PIAS. Earlier this May, the legendary producer duo of Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe debuted the club-ready, jacking “Unicorn,” the first track to be taken from the new record. It has met with universal praise, working as a perfect taster of what the full length has to offer. Both “Unicorn” and album track “Mermaid Of Salinas” will be available as an instant download with every pre-order of the digital album from June 10th onwards.
“With this album,” says Felix Buxton, “we wanted to do something that felt more at one with the world.” This approach is reflected in the titles of “Power To The People,” “We Are Not Alone” and “Love Is At Your Side,” as well as the uplifting “Never Say Never” and the throwback fun of “What’s The News” and “Sneakin’ Toronto.”
Basement Jaxx will return to North America this summer for a short run of exclusive DJ club dates. Beginning July 11 at 333 in Los Angeles, the duo will also appear at Public Works July 12 in San Francisco, Verboten July 16 in New York and The Hoxton July 17 in Toronto. At these shows, they will highlight music from their upcoming new album.
