The esteemed lords of electronic music Basement Jaxx unite with the full force of Sydney's Metropolitan Orchestra for an Australian tour next year.
Following on from their ground-breaking 2011 album collaboration with The Metropole Orkest and the now seminal live shows that accompanied it in London and the Netherlands, Basement Jaxx will unveil a new and updated version of the project as they creatively collide live on stage with The Metropolitan Orchestra at the iconic Sydney Opera House, as well as stops in Melbourne and Brisbane.
Comprising magical re-interpretations of all the Basement Jaxx floor-fillers as well as specially commissioned new work and a few surprises along the way, the show will also feature legendary Jaxx singers Vula & Sharlene Hector on powerhouse vocal duties.
Basement Jaxx are no strangers to Aussie shores and have thrilled audiences over the years with their massive hit records including: ‘Red Alert,’ ‘Rendez-Vu,’ ‘Jump N Shout,’ ‘Bingo Bango,’ ‘Romeo,’ ‘Where’s Your Head At,’ ‘Do Your Thing,’ ‘Good Luck,’ ‘Oh My Gosh,’ ‘Hush Boy’ & many more.
They’ve also collaborated with the likes of: Robyn, Sam Sparro, Dizzee Rascal and have remixed for the likes of Pet Shop Boys, Daft Punk, Justin Timberlake, Adele, Mary J Blige and more.
Landing in Australia in 2019, these shows promise to be a remarkable re-imagining of one of dance music’s most influential recording artists in an extraordinary classical and contemporary re-boot of their original live show.
