Basement Jaxx – Raindrops

First of all, this song is first-class. Second of all, it’s about time! Third, if your looking for the  grim and gritty version Basement Jaxx, look again. Don’t get me wrong, Remedy is the classic and with nostalgia always in play it will be impossible to top it…

I’m not going to be able to top what my name is…” – Eminem

But styles and trends have never stopped me from liking a good song and this new single is no exception. In true blogosphere fashion, I’ve already started to hear people say how pop this song is and how they’re selling out to appeal to a wider audience blah blah. Slow down bagels, the Jonas Brothers are pop, this is nothing close to that. The production and vocal performance on this song are phenomenal. I except a legion of remixes within the next 48 hours. The new album is still untitled but is said to feature guest vocals from Grace Jones, Yoko Ono, Sam Sparro, Cyndi Lauper, Santigold, and Yo Majesty – I’m kinda like a big deal. I should have more tracks soon, stay tuned. In the meantime don’t call it a comeback! EMPT fave, enjoy.
