Basement Jaxx

From their '90s singles to the more ambitious projects they tackled in the decades to come, Basement Jaxx were one of the U.K.'s most respected -- and enjoyable -- progressive house acts. While virtually everything South London production duo Simon Ratcliffe and Felix Buxton released was rooted in house, they mutated several styles (R&B, U.K. garage, ragga, Latin jazz, ambient techno) with an unmatched restlessness. They constantly shuffled the deck, all the while collaborating with an endless array of vocalists both known (including Biz Markie, Siouxsie Sioux, and Yoko Ono) and unknown.
