Basement Jaxx

Ten years down the line, dance-pop duo Basement Jaxx writes its own ticket in choosing collaborators. Its fifth album, Scars, features such marquee names as Santogold, Kelis, Sam Sparro, and Yoko Ono. The pair's patented jangly, unrestrained house music suits the disparate styles of its guest vocalists, allowing Scars to morph among twisted R&B, superclub floor-fillers, moody dub, and frantic disco. While this might sound too scattered to work, once you get over the odd speedbumps, the album makes itself worth your while.
