It's been nearly two years since we last heard from long-standing godfathers of UK house, Basement Jaxx. But this week the legends of dance music announced they are getting back to what they have always done best - with a set of UK tour dates this winter.
These live dates follow the unveiling of their new single 'Back 2 The Wild', which is released on May 20th through 37 Adventures. This new track is quintessentially Jaxx - a super heavy weight groove featuring vocals from Korean singers Miss Emma Lee and Baby Chay, as well as tribal horns recorded in Kenya. Having already been widely received as a tent-topping Carnival anthem, 'Back 2 The Wild' looks set to re-establish Basement Jaxx at the top of the UK dance scene. The tour comes at the end of this year, kicking off in Leeds on November 28th and hitting Manchester on November 29th, Newcastle on December 1st, Birmingham on December 5th before finishing at the O2 Academy Brixton, London on December 6th.
