Product Description

Amazon.ca

Finally, Basement Jaxx's long-awaited full-length, Remedy, has been issued in the U.S. It's aptly titled, to be sure: the production duo's record is a remedy to the dull, faceless house and techno that populates dance floors. The duo are unrepentantly pop savvy, bringing vocals and lyrics to their unique blend of electro, house, hip-hop, salsa, and soul. It's a weird combo, but like the best of all pop songs, Basement Jaxx tracks stick like putty to the ears within a few listens. In fact, you may feel that you've already heard much of Remedy when you give it a spin on your CD player. With their boisterous samples, vocal hooks, and funked-out, catchy bass lines, the songs "Rendez-vu," "Yo-Yo," and "Red Alert" seem like familiar friends, rather than just the next big thing. --Tricia Romano

4.0 out of 5 stars Didn't Quite Live Up to the Hype June 24 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Having heard the singles "Rendez Vu" and "Red Alert", I was pumped when I was able to get my hands on this import. All the hype from the Winter Music Conference and all the various magazines that were touting the Jaxx as the next Daft Punk had me salivating at the mouth. The CD is excellent, though there a few filler tracks. It is good to listen to all the way through, but the last song is skippable. I prefer a CD to have a solid closer, giving you incentive to listen to the album in its entirety. Way too many down tempo tracks. An excellent album to listen to, but I was expecting a lot of the songs to be a lot more geared toward the dancefloor. Wait for it to become available domestically in August.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something different... July 26 1999
Format:Audio CD
Finally, the Basement Jaxx cd was released.It was one of the most expected releases of 1999, and it's worth the money. A revolutionary turning point in the electronic music style. No cold electronic beats and spacy sounds that makes techno & house so unoriginal. This is the dance music we all waited for: hiphop, mambo and disco influences are mixed all through the album, with a little touch of experimental music. On the floor everybody!!! If you thought electronic music isn't danceable but artificial... buy this. It's 100% fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yeah......Yeah Jan. 14 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've really gotten into these tunes. Not necessarily for their dance orientation, but I've also found a British group, who know how to mix it up successfully.My favorite is "Same Old Show". What a mix!!!! I've taken this tune during my own dj'ng, and regardless of how I remix it, or edit it, it still has been a hit with everyone. Yes, I definately recommend this cd to anyone who enjoys dance music, but likes a mix also. I'm checking out other releases, and will definately review them later.

1.0 out of 5 stars Basement Jaxx disappoint! July 22 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was really looking forward to getting hold of Basement Jaxx' Remedy immediately after its release this summer, but I'd never thought they would end up making such a complete failure! It's crap music, screwed up tunes, poor samples and just a mockery of what House Music is all about!
Buy their earlier "Atlantic Jaxx Recordings - A Compilation" if you're interested in hearing some of their better tunes. Those songs are the ones that made the press hype these guys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shake Da House! May 26 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Basement Jaxx is a DJ combo based in Brixton, London. No surprise then, these guys just cannot close their doors to mixed influences and would jump to the roof if you were telling them they have just released the best House record for ages! Result? Pretty shaky stuff, both for your body and for your ears. Like a Spanish guitar jumping in a pure deep House rythm, and mind, yah, nothing tacky there. So, catch this train before it is too hyped to get in safely!

5.0 out of 5 stars Basement Jaxx is an unbelieveable new release. June 7 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Basement Jaxx's Remedy under the XL and Astralwerks label is a great CD with excellent sampling and even better use of the samples. Their sound is almost like a big-beat Chemical Brothers, but best described as England's Cassius. They really know what they are doing and will definitely be up, rising and unbelievably fast. I suggest to everyone to beat the hype and buy this unbeliveable CD as quick as possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome album from the next big thing... June 12 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a great album for dance fans wanting to get away from the Fatboy Slim mainstream going on lately. This is an awesome album that offers many genres of dance into one, with all of them being awesome tracks to make you move. From salsa to house, its all there. I highly recommend this album as a person who follows the dance scene very closely. Check it out!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like this try..... July 26 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
'Remedy' is quite simply the best dance album produced in the last year. They should definitely win the Mercury Music Prize for it. If they don't I'll eat my woolly hat ! If you are into their sound, try these too : Les Rythmes Digitales - 'Dark Dancer' on Wall Of Sound Astralwerks; Groove Armada - 'Vertigo' on Jive. And shake your bootie...!
