But while their third record, Kish Kash, is still miles ahead of the various formula relied upon by scores of dance producers, it isn't the same filler-free party classic as Remedy and Rooty. In fact, it reveals the duo perhaps relying too much on their own formula, the jumped-up Prince production with tech-heavy percussion and effects exploding all over the mix.
Kish Kash may not have highs as glorious as "Red Alert" or "Romeo", but it's the most consistently entrancing record of Basement Jaxx's career, and one on which they largely turn their ear away from the dynamics and repetition of dance music. For instance, of the tracks here, only "Supersonic" wouldn't have stood out on their debut, Remedy- and even that track doesn't feature house's traditional 4/4 beat. Pharrell and Chad treaded water, offering an album that consolidated their strengths but rarely approached their best work. Then Big Boi did his part, but Andre 3000 dropped the ball, creating a modern Lovesexy when a Dirty Mind would have been more rewarding. On Kish Kash, Basement Jaxx recover Dre's fumble and move near the front of the 00s' crop of rock-dance crossovers, a growing group of Paradise Garage rockers who, with luck, are a sign of the times.
Kish Kash is the third studio album by English electronic music duo Basement Jaxx, released in 20 October 2003 by XL and Astralwerks. After a lengthy tour which caused them exhaustion and homesickness, they settled in their new studio and wanted to develop a new fresh approach with less reliant on grooves and samples and more focused on songwriting. It reached number 17 on the UK Albums Chart.
