Basement Jaxx's Atlantic Jaxx label might have been relatively more dormant over recent years, but we are in no way, shape or form fit to contest its mighty heritage, a history of timeless electronic releases that stretches back to the late 1990s. We're also glad to see them branching out a bit more and finding new talent, with this wild and unpredictable EP by Planet Battagon providing some much needed oddity in our lives. "Inside Out" is a wonky burst of synths and beats, while "Like You Like Me" feels like a new form of minimal techno with an outsider approach. "Turnip" is a healthy slice of electronica to sign off this sublime little EP in fine style. Top!
