SHREM'S LIST OBSESSION: Top 10 Favourite Basement Jaxx Collaborations

We're still over one month away from the release of Basement Jaxx's excellent single with Sam Brookes "What A Difference Your Love Makes". I couldn't hide my euphoria about this ludicrously good song claiming it the other day to be Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe's best single in over a decade. This unusual and unexpected joint effort between the London duo and Tim Buckley and Nick Drake influenced folk singer made me go through all of Basement Jaxx's back catalogue in search of their most fruitful, surprising and dazzling collaborations to date. And so I came up with this brand new list of mine:

10 "What's A Girl Gotta Do?" - with Paloma Faith, from "Scars" (2009)

09 "Saga" - with Santigold, from "Scars" (2009)

08 "Rocking Chair" - with Cyndi Lauper, from her "Bring Ya To The Brink" (2008)

07 "Hey U" - with Robyn, from "Crazy Itch Radio" (2006)

06 "Scars" - with Kelis, Meleka & Chipmunk, from "Scars" (2009)

05 "Cish Cash" - with Siouxsie Sioux, from "Kish Kash" (2003)

04 "What A Difference Your Love Makes" - with Sam Brookes (2013)

03 "Twerk" - with Yo! Majesty, from "Planet 1 EP" (2008)

02 "Day Of The Sunflowers (We March On)" - with Yoko Ono, from "Scars" (2009)

01 "Lucky Star" - with Dizzee Rascal, from "Kish Kash" (2003)
