Basement Jaxx new material to be release in August

Felix and Simon dropped the first tastes of their new material over the past two months, starting with the carnivalesque Mermaid of Salinas and closely followed by the jacking, acidic house mover Unicorn. And now the veteran UK duo has revealed that we’ll get their full 13-track LP Junto (‘Together’ in Spanish) and will be distributed on Friday 22 August through Atlantic Jaxx/ [PIAS] Australia.

It’s been quite a wait – the first hints of the new album appeared back in 2011, and they started dropping new material in live shows and DJ sets as early as July 2012. Basement Jaxx have a big summer lined up, with a DJ residency in Ibiza and festival slots with the full touring act across Europe. No news yet on when they’ll next be in Australia, so the closest you’ll come is pre-order the album via ITunes.
