Rooty by Basement Jaxx
Released: Jun 2001
Label: Xl
Where Basement Jaxx's Remedy charted underground house on a course for planet Pop, Rooty triumphantly touched down on a world even stranger than we'd imagined. Familiar disco licks paved the ground underfoot, but the atmosphere was something new, aswirl with delirious hooks and R&B choruses, as bounding boom-thwack beats flaunted gravity with every bounce. "Romeo," "Breakaway," "Just 1 Kiss" and "Where's Your Head At" attained classic club status, but avant-funk like "SFM" and the Spanish-inflected breakbeat ballad "Broken Dreams" round out an album that's back-to-front bananas.
