What is Justice? Justice is the soundtrack to Castlevania. The bloodbath scene in Blade. Daft Punk without the hats. Tron. Space. Rock. Roll. Disco. Justice is, simultaneously, a migraine powered by a sensory overload you’d never want to cure and a trek through previously uncharted musical landscapes that pushes the boundaries of what’s possible with two men and a bunch of instruments.
Listening to Justice is like watching Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s La cité des enfants perdus–a complete mindfuck. There’s something about the French that gives them the ability to produce mind-blowing content and Justice has it in spades. Their albums are rock, dance, electronic, disco, fuzz and everything else necessary to make great music. They have a handful of nominations and wins from Grammy and almost permanent places on the who’s who “Top XX Albums of the Year” whenever they release an album. Their remixes just so happen to be fucking fantastic too. There doesn’t seem to be anything the two gentlemen you see above are incapable of doing.
Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay are the new breed of the classic rock star. They light up arenas with light reflected from glistening boobs on countless topless women. They demolish clubs with a dance party that would tear down a venue twice its size. This Summer, they’re going to rip Chicago a new one and it’s going to be glorious.
