Basement Jaxx – Scars

Scars CD Cover

Yup, my favorite house duo from the UK is back with a new CD.  Got it on Friday and have been listening ever since.  Scars is a perfect example of why I like their music so much: variety and quality of production.  This CD has stylings of all different kinds of music: from Hip Hop, Electronica, DnB, Ethereal, World Music, etc., etc., not to mention, the traditional Basement Jaxx take on House music.  Simon Ratcliffe and Felix Buxton are two of best producers of music ever- they focus on using new sounds, layering throughout the songs and creating tracks that you can feel.  Two definite stand outs from Scars that will get play in clubs and probably remixed by DJs:  Raindrops and Feelings Gone.  Raindrops is probably one of the best videos I have seen in a long time- beware some nipple action goes on. 

This CD fights for the best Jaxx album, but I still LOVE Rooty.  I continue to listen to it all the time, even though it came out like 8 or 9  years ago.

P.S.  I love the CD and Single Covers- this one is from the single “Feelings Gone”  featuring an awesomely punchy pachyderm with its feather headdress and Daft Punk-esque eye shield.
