Basement Jaxx – “Mermaid Of Salinas”

By Tom Breihan / August 12, 2013 - 9:20 am

The joyously ADD dance-music polyglots Basement Jaxx were out of commission for a little while, but they’ve returned this year with a dizzy string of new singles, all in advance of the forthcoming EP What A Difference Your Love Makes. The brand-new “Mermaid Of Salinas” follows “Back 2 The Wild” and the EP’s title track, and it’s got some of the same Spanish-guitar flourishes and delirious chant-alongs as “Rendez Vu,” the track that brought the duo to prominence 14 years ago. It’s a deeply fun piece of pseudo-Spanish kitsch, and you can hear it below.

What A Difference Your Love Makes is out 9/30 on 37 Adventures.
