Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Basement Jaxx: Simon Ratcliffe, Felix Buxton.
  • Additional personnel: Dizzee Rascal, Siouxsie Sioux, Me'Shell NdegeOcello, JC Chasez, Lisa Kekaula (vocals).
  • Recorded at Jaxx Studio, London, England between March 2002 & July 2003.
  • Any album that features both boy-band vet JC Chasez and goth-punk icon Siouxsie Sioux calls for a double take, and once Basement Jaxx have your attention, they pull you into the non-stop house party of KISH KASH. On their third album, the UK duo of Simon Ratcliffe and Felix Buxton joins the ranks of the Chemical Brothers and Fatboy Slim by including a remarkable roster of high-profile guest artists that extends to soul/funk diva Me'Shell NdegeOcello and up-and-coming British rapper Dizzee Rascal.
  • KISH KASH opens with the energetic "Good Luck," which presents the buoyant, Motown-influenced vocals of Lisa Kekaula against a loopy backdrop of distorted synthesizer and a full string section. Other standout tracks include the two Prince-inspired numbers that feature NdegeOcello ("Right Here's the Spot" and "Feels Like Home") and cockney lyricist Dizzee Rascal's delirious Eastern-inflected contribution. The true highlight, however, is the driving, fuzz-bass-fueled title track, which features Siouxsie Sioux's unmistakable vocals over the surging sonic assault. A fun, clever, and always unpredictable outing, KISH KASH is house music for people who don't think they like house music.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (12/25/03, p.104) - Included in Rolling Stone's "50 Best Albums of 2003"

Rolling Stone (11/13/03, p.90) - 4 stars out of 5 - "The energy nevers sags and ideas never flag on the third album...[the] duo cribs from R&B, punk, house, Asian, Latin and Middle Eastern music without the self-consciousness that usually accompanies such a broad palette..."

Spin (12/03, p.126) - "...As always, there are two drop-dead singles..." - Grade: B

Entertainment Weekly (12/26/03-1/2/04, p.140) - Ranked #2 in Entertainment Weekly's 2003 "Records of the Year"

Entertainment Weekly (10/24/03, p.104) - "...Listening to KISH KASH is akin to charging through a multilevel club and being happily overwhelmed by the divergent styles booming out of each room..." - Rating: A-

Q (01/01/04, p.79) - Ranked #25 in Q's "The 50 Best Albums of 2003"

Q (11/03, p.106) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...'Plug It In' is an instant classic fuelled by nitro-bass, falsetto vocals and rave synths, while 'Lucky Star' dazzles in a future-funk collage of bhangra beats, tricky Neptunes melodies and Dizzee Rascal..."

Uncut (01/04, pp.84-7) - Ranked #25 in Uncut's "Albums Of The Year 2003"

Mojo (Publisher) (11/03, p.128) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...KISH KASH is a fast-moving stylistic synthesis....Truly, a glorious noise..."
