The first Soundstage event will have exclusive interviews with leading electronic music musicians,
Basement Jaxx’s Felix Buxton and J. Willgoose Esq. of the acclaimed band Public Service Broadcasting.
Felix Buxton formed Basement Jaxx twenty years ago with Simon Ratcliffe as underground producers and party promoters. Since then, they have sold over three million albums, including 2005’s double platinum UK No.1 collection, The Singles. The duo have also developed into a renowned live act, with live musicians, an army of singers and dazzling visuals. 2005 saw them play at the world-famous Hollywood Bowl, to 30,000 people in Hyde Park headlining Glastonbury. That year, they won a Grammy for Best Electronic Album to add to their two BRITs and numerous other awards. Their hit singles include Red Alert, Romeo, Where’s Your Head At, Oh My God, Rendez-Vu and Do Your Thing. Basement Jaxx recently released their seventh album, Junto. www.basementjaxx.com
J. WILLGOOSE ESQ.
J. Willgoose Esq. is half of the acclaimed band Public Service Broadcasting. The duo’s music consists of electronic and guitar sounds. This is mixed with samples from old public information films, archive footage and propaganda material, “teaching the lessons of the past through the music of the future.” Their debut album, Inform – Educate – Entertain, was released in 2013 to widespread critical acclaim, with four-star reviews from Mojo, The Guardian, The Independent and many more. BBC 6 Music DJs voted it as year’s ninth best album. Public Service Broadcasting are currently working on their eagerly awaited second album. www.publicservicebroadcasting.net
