If you like house/trance you can't go wrong with the "Global Underground" series featuring top DJ's playing live in diff. venues around the world. I think they're up to about Vol. 18 (?) now . For slightly harder tunes try React or Perfecto lables stuff too.
Can't keep up with all this new stuff. For pure class try Led Zeppelin Remasters double CD, Deep Purple Live in Japan, Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon. That sort of music lasts forever. Most new stuff I've got into is great but only for a while.

Have to agree with Jane's Addiction too - also check out the red hot chillie peppers 'Californication'
I personally could not live without Adrian Legg's 'Guitar for Mortals' CD - it is simply awe inspiring.
Cassius?.....typical French disco house (although very groovy)
However, Basement Jaxx have their own style.
Their tunes are busy, involved & very funky crossing many genres.
The production is clinical & they have terrific melody's with some weird & wonderful vocal stabs..
Basically, i think they stick their fingers up @ the bog standard
4x4 house tunes......
Have you tried Rooty?....
They are one of the only artists i will buy without hearing.
I love their funked up style...........& their rowdy party vibe.
They must spend a while tweaking with their synths
