Friday’s edition is hosted by Miami-based underground favorite Behrouz, while Frank & Tony’s own Brooklyn-based Scissor & Thread label presents a diversity of today’s most talented artists on Saturday. Josh Wink– whose Ovum Recordings celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and continues to be a catalyst in the global dance movement — hosts on Sunday.

UK’s celebrated Basement Jaxx
touch down in Brooklyn for a highly anticipated DJ set at Verboten’s Zeitgeist series on Wednesday, July 16
. Nearly four years since their last official album release, Basement Jaxx are also set to release their new album Junto on August 26
via Atlantic Jaxx/PIAS.
Earlier this May, the legendary producer duo of Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe debuted the club-ready, jacking “Unicorn,” the first track to be taken from Junto. It has met with universal praise, working as a perfect taster of what the full length has to offer. Both “Unicorn” and album track “Mermaid Of Salinas” are now available as an instant download with every pre-order of the digital album. Listen to “Unicorn” and “Mermaid Of Salinas” now at: www.soundcloud.com/basement-jaxx
Junto marks the duo’s seventh studio album and the title, which translates from Spanish as together, sums up the spirit of the record and the very essence of the Jaxx’s desire to unify people with their music. “With this album,” says Felix Buxton, “we wanted to do something that felt more at one with the world.” This approach is reflected in the titles of “Power To The People,” “We Are Not Alone” and “Love Is At Your Side,” as well as the uplifting “Never Say Never” and the throwback fun of “What’s The News” and “Sneakin’ Toronto.”
The last few years have seen the pair take time out to write not one but two film scores (“Attack The Block” and “The Hooping Life”) as well as producing an orchestral album in collaboration with the Metropole Orkest. In 2013 they teased out new music in the form of two tropical cuts “Back 2 The Wild” and “What A Difference Your Love Makes” and played a number of their legendary carnival-esque live shows.
