Following on from a recent performance at Manchester’s annual Pride celebrations, Defected have just announced that Basement Jaxx will be returning to the city once again on 30 November as the special guest for Glitterbox X Defected at the O2 Victoria Warehouse.
The English music duo, consisting of Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe, have enjoyed huge success since they shot into the limelight in the mid-1990s. Their name originated from the club night they began in London, Brixton in 1994 - where they were joined by DJs including DJ Sneak, Daft Punk, and singer Corrina Joseph. Their music is a mixture of house, electronica, UK garage and big beat.
Over the years they have released six studio albums that have reached the charts in the UK and worldwide, featuring tracks such as ‘Romeo’, ‘Where’s Your Head At?’, ‘Good Luck’, ‘Jump ‘N’ Shout’ and ‘Oh My Gosh’.
Basement Jaxx will perform as the headliners for the Glitterbox stage, and will join the likes of Dimitri from Paris, The Shapeshifters ft. Teni Tinks and Melvo Baptiste for an evening of house and disco music from two of the largest clubbing brands in the scene.
The Defected stage lineup is Sam Divine, David Penn, Ferreck Dawn, Roberto Surace, Simon Dunmore and CDC.
