Basement Jaxx – “What A Difference Your Love Makes”
It’s been four years since Basement Jaxx’s last LP, 2009’s Zephyr, but the English electronic duo is scheduled to return this year with the, um, ambitiously titled Music. Before that, though, they’re going to drop an EP in September, the title track of which we’ve got today. “What A Difference Your Love Makes” is pretty joyous and incredibly slick house with huge disco melodies, featuring vocals by a dude named Sam Brookes. I’m listening to it on decent noise-canceling headphones, and the thing sounds absolutely perfect — meticulous, layered, massive — but it’ll probably sound even better at jet-engine levels in warehouse-sized spaces where everybody else will be hearing it every night for the remainder of summer 2013. Listen.
The What A Difference Your Love Makes EP is out on 9/30 via 37 Adventures.
