Listen: Basement Jaxx’s new song “Never Say Never”


Basement Jaxx will return with their first album in over five years, Junto, on August 25th via Atlantic Jaxx/PIAS. The duo of Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe have already shared a few of the album’s 13 tracks, namely the bubbly “Unicorn” and the Salsa-inspired “Mermaid of Salinas” (which debuted on last fall’s What a Difference Your Love Makes EP).

Today, the pair unveil another of the LP’s “jacking house tracks” with “Never Say Never”. After pushing the energy levels into the stratosphere, Basement Jaxx now take a more relaxed approach. Though still suited for warehouse parties, “Never Say Never” is more nuanced, a steady stream of lush, romantic harmonies, dub-leaning bass and drums, and some vintage, slightly dusty pianos. One could easily enjoy this ditty with a nice afternoon mocaccino and some crackers.
