For me, this is the definitive Basement Jaxx single. I remember this at the time and fell in love with it instantly. Its so chunky and very funky. The vocals are super catchy too.

This absolutely rocked the terrace at Space in ibiza 1999, i think i remember hearing Judge Jules okay this first on his radio 1 show.

Basement Jaxx went on to become a successful crossover act after this too. I still think however, that this is still there best record and it's highly unlikely they'll top it.
