BaSix

BaSix

Male Contemporary Quintet from Copenhagen, Denmark.

With a grand total of 4 international CARA awards, including "Best European Album" and "Best Holiday Album" the Danish vocal pop group Basix has proven themselves to be among the very best of a cappella groups worldwide.

Spanning pop, jazz, r&b, soul, and rock and blending strong original compositions with innovative arrangements of timeless songs, these six Danish vocalists continue to amaze an ever-increasing number of listeners around the world.

Basix strong vocal performance, which runs the whole gamut of emotions has dazzled audiences in a vast number of concert halls, theaters, clubs, cafes, churches, and at conferences and private events. So far the group has given concerts in U.S.A, Denmark, Norway, Germany, Holland, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Slovakia and Cyprus, and every year the popularity of the group keeps growing.

A memorable performance in the Danish precompetiton for the Eurovision Song Contest, broadcast live on national TV in the spring of 2001, kick-started the career of the six vocalists. Since their honorable second place in the competition, Basix has performed several times in the radio and on national TV. For example in "The Great Christmas Show" in 2004 and 2005, where they performed with international artists such as Gawin DeGraw, Mick Hucknall, Beth Hart and Lucie Silvas, and this has resulted in the group's current status as one of Scandinavia's premier ensembles.

In September 2001, Basix released their debut album "The grass". Immediately the album broke into the Danish charts, and was nominated for a Contemporary A Cappella Recording Award (CARA). For seven weeks it attained a placing among the ten best-selling albums in DK, a placing which, in the end, earned the members of Basix a platinum album.

Diversity

BaSix : Diversity

The first thing that the (beautiful, multi-page, color, with cool pix and all the lyrics) liner notes of "Diversity" tells us is that this is the 5th album by Basix, "the first Basix album containing solely original songs straight from the minds and hearts of all the members of the group. Enjoy!" Easy for us, since these 6 talented Danish men first formed Basix in 1995 we have been watching this group get more amazing with every excellent CD, until we hold "Diversity" in our hot little hands, a tour-de-force 2 CD set that is world-class on every level. There's a total of 19 original tunes here, all sung in English, each one a gem. The fresh, clean sound, the confident, light background vocals and vocal percussion, the surprising, poetic lyrics, the sweet leads-what's not to enjoy? OK, I guess we'll have to pick some favorites at this point. "Super Natural Conversation" on disk 2, a wonderful reggae tune with an early Beatles flavor, "Tease" on disk 1 is a sexy, rhythmic romp, the title tune on disc 1 is a juicy foot-tapping suggestion against racism, and "So Much Better" is a marvelously arranged hit with the eye-opening opening line "I'm sorry, but I think you suck." "Change" on disk 1 simply needs to be listened to, as do "Let's Move On" and "Think Twice." On disk 2 "A Thousand Years," "It Won't Matter To Me," "High On Life (In The Slow Lane)," "Honesty" and "Without You" are all stone winners. There are certain groups (The Real Group, for instance) that push the a cappella envelope with every recording, every performance, and Basix is such a group. Don't miss this one!

Songlist: Why We Always Wait, So Much Better, Tease, Diversity, Said I Wanna Go My Way, Cry out for Muses, Change, Did a Little, Let's Move On, Think Twice, A Thousand Years, Super Natural Conversation, It Won't Matter To Me, High on Life (In the Slow Lane), The Truth Behind my Love, Infected with You, A Thought for You, Honesty, Without You

Part Of Me

BaSix : Embodiment

For their second release baSix has the great idea of getting some of a cappella's finest talents to help them so they engaged the House Jack's Deke Sharon and Britt Quinten of M-Pact to produce the album. A mixture of some fine original songs along with pop classics such as Prince's "Purple Rain" and the Beatles "Come Together" makes for a top-notch contemporary a cappella album worthy of all fans collections. All songs are in English and the production quality is superb thanks to noted a cappella sound engineer Bill Hare.

The Grass

BaSix : The Grass

The group gives credit to Italian a cappella greats Neri Per Caso as an inspiration for their sound and this debut album does justice to that high standard. The CD was a hit in their native Denmark and was the first a cappella recording ever to make the Danish pop charts where it stayed for 7 weeks selling over 25,000 copies. A great beginning for this fine a cappella sextet.

Songlist: Dreamlover, Englishman In New York, You Can't Hurry Love, I Can't Make You You Love Me, It Will Take Me All Life, Hepsi Senin Mi, The Grass, Going My Way, Smooth Operator, How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You), Weathered Storm, Australian Spring
