Basement Jaxx’s new soul-meets-house dance track could be their best yet.

“What a Difference You Love Makes” is not only propulsive, but the message and beat are inspiring.

Simon Ratcliffe and Felix Buxton formed Basement Jaxx in the mid 90s. The South London duo started their record label Atlantic Jaxx in 1994. They hit the U.K. charts for the first time in 1997 with the song “Flylife.”

In 1999 Basement Jaxx signed to XL Recordings and put out their debut full-length Remedy. Rooty dropped two years later, named after the duo’s club night in London.

Kish Kash was next in 2003. It had one of the group’s best tracks to date. “Good Luck” with Lisa Kekaula merged strong R&B vocals with dramatic house music.

Crazy Itch Radio came out in 2006, followed by Basement Jaxx’s Singles collection.

Scars in 2009 had a title-track steeped in classical music. More proof that Basement Jaxx was unafraid to add any genre to their electronic dancescapes.

The download collection Zephyr in 2009 was more experimental and understated than Basement Jaxx’s earlier work.

In 2013 Basement Jaxx dropped a long-awaited but rather disappointing single “Back to The Wild.”

The new track “What a Difference Your Love Makes” sets the bar quite a bit higher. Hopefully this song is a preview of the band’s next record. What a difference the lyrics make!
