Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe founded Basement Jaxx, an English electronic music duo in 1994 to explore the dimensions of music genres like electronic, UK garage, house, and big beat. They gained immense popularity in the mid-1990s and revolutionised the way people listened to and enjoyed electronic music.
The duo got its name from a regular club night they hosted in Brixton, London. They thrive on their sense of organised chaos, and diverse sounds and ideas.
They are associated with distinguished labels like 37 Adventures, Interscope, PIAS, and XL. The talented duo also founded Atlantic Jaxx recordings, a record company originally based in Camberwell and later Brixton.
