CD REVIEW: Basement Jaxx "Scars"

One of the most prolific electronic artists in the past twenty years, Basement Jaxx have returned to the airwaves with a new, incredibly inventive album. They have always been know for their genre bending club jams, as well as their creative collaborations, and their newest album does not disappoint on either of those. Musicians such as Sam Sparro, Lightspeed Champion, Santigold, and even Yoko Ono have all contributed to the mix, adding their own unique stamp on the tracks they appear on. "Raindrops" is classic Basement Jaxx, while the title track, "Feelings Gone," and "My Turn" display a slightly updated approach as they boldly leap into a new decade. Basement Jaxx are truly an entity that is necessary and welcome in the electronic world, and they continue to amaze with their creative compositions.
