BASE­MENT JAXX & SIGMA @ NASIMI

Infusion Magazine - - LOOKING BACK - – Sam Moult

Fe­bru­ary 6th saw the re­turn of Base­ment Jaxx and Sigma to Nasimi’s first Nasimi Ses­sions. To the tune of around 1,000 peo­ple, the beach was lit alight by Smok­ingroove be­fore the Base­ment Jaxx duo took to the decks with their own blend of groovy house, well- known hits and deep- cuts of their own pro­duc­tions. With a boosted sound sys­tem and a hint of CO2, Nasimi kept the en­ergy up with the crowd bounc­ing with ex­cite­ment. Although the Jaxx’s set could have been a bit more pro­gres­sive- y, they knocked it up a notch for the sec­ond hour with ‘ Do Your Thing’ be­fore tak­ing it back down again.

Ar­guably the head­liner, Sigma stepped up to the stage as if he had never left ( hardly sur­pris­ing since they was here a few months ago any­way) and jumped straight into the Drum & Bass vibe. Whilst an MC might be an in­te­gral part of DnB cul­ture, their MC seemed to be stuck on hy­per- speed, speak­ing af­ter ev­ery beat and con­stantly re­mind­ing peo­ple to jump. MC grum­bles aside, a wel­come re­turn to Nasimi’s big beach ac­tion, with more of the same lined up be­fore sum­mer.
