Part of what made English electronic duo Basement Jaxx so successful is their ability to combine humor and playfulness with masterfully hard-hitting beats, and member Felix Buxton has inaugurated a new side project aiming for a winning balance of just that combination. It's called Geranimo & Mikey, made up of Buxton collaborating with Mikey Woodbridge of London's queer Sink The Pink club night, and their new track is a self-described vogueing anthem entreating you to "Walk The Dog."

Outfitted with characteristically Jaxx neon production flourishes and a glimmering, super-polished finish, the track was inspired by a London voguer called Sancho, who was "strutting around with a wheel-driven toy dog on a leash," as the duo told FACT.

The Walk The Dog EP is now available for preorder, and features five separate mixes of the track including the "Take It To The Drag Race Vogue Mix"; pick it up when it's out on Basement Jaxx' label Atlantic Jaxx March 25.
