Zephyr by Basement Jaxx
Released: Dec 2009
Label: Ultra Records, LLC
Following just a few months after Scars, the tracks on Zephyr come from the same sessions. But instead of releasing its predecessor as a double album, the Jaxx -- never afraid to stuff a record to the bursting point -- decided to reserve these "soundscapes" for a separate release. The results showcase the club-music duo as you've never heard them before, twisting up sitars, Spanish guitars, soulful vocals and shuffling breakbeats into a dial-spinning collage that makes for one of the most invigorating versions of "chill-out" imaginable.
