Published November 13, 2003.Basement JaxxKish Kash(XL)How many elements can be crammed into a dance track before clutter impedes its booty-rattling capabilities? If Basement Jaxx is doing the cramming, many. Sonic density and guest stars (Dizzee Rascal, Siouxsie Sioux) define the third album. Lisa Kekuala of the Bellrays steps up on “Good Luck,” an inspired piece of casting. Three notes serve as anchor and launch pad on the most compulsive slice of hip propulsion, “Plug It In.” Even as it achieves release, the brain re-mains engaged. —Doug Taylor
