Perennial UK house music duo Simon Ratcliffe and Felix Buxton of Basement Jaxx return to the fore with their fifth longplayer, Scars, an album that harkens back to the undeniable energy of their smashing cross-over debut, Remedy. This digital DJ promo delivers the radio edit and the album version of their Top 20 summer anthem, "Raindrops," with seven extremely diverse remixes to boot, including: the driving Funkagenda & Paul Thomas Re-Dux, Robbie Rivera's four-to-the-floor techno versions, Joker & Ginz raygun synth-laden Re-Mix, the squelching Under New Management remix, Doorly's sub-shattering dubstep, and AN21 & Philip Jensen all-out rock out. Featuring Felix's twisted vocals, a punch-the-air chorus and a pulsing dance groove, this vintage-style Jaxx tune is as unavoidable as the Earth is to raindrops.
