Justice has put out its second EP, namely ‘Waters of Nazareth’, featuring the ground breaking title song, the harmonically ambitious yet extremely catchy ‘Let There Be Light’ and the up-tempo Dancing Vampire-like Carpates’. The EP is already a fav, played by Laurent Garnier, Trevor Jackson, Tiefschwarz, James Holden, Andrew Weatherhall, Optimo, Benny Benassi (!) and such. The boys are working on their first LP. Let’s hope Metallica’s motto will reign soon:
AND JUSTICE FOR ALL…
JUSTICE – WATERS OF NAZARETH
SEPARATED BY BIRTH …. JOINED TOGETHER FOR REVENGE JUSTICE
the twenty something boy duo from North Paris, formed in 2003. Gaspard Augé (aka ‘The Moustache’) and Xavier de Rosnay (aka ‘The China’) met at a party in a packed kitchen where Gaspard was spitting beer in girl’s hair. They soon became JUSTICE, had badges made with their logo on, and decided to record some tracks together. Their first collaboration paid tribute to The Buggles…
THE CHEESE AND DELICATESSEN INCIDENT
At a raclette party, Xavier and Gaspard met the infamous Pedro Winter… After sharing some red wine, ham and pickles with the boys, Pedro fell in love with their bedroom-recorded Simian’s “Never Be Alone remix”. The track was actually intended for a remix comp but headed directly to Pedro’s office instead. Catchy as anything, Justice’s ‘Never Be Alone’ loops the screaming chorus vocals from the original Simian song and builds up to a stunning club anthem.
…NEVER BE ALONE
Pedro’s label, Ed Banger Records put out an EP… Rocking the DJ charts, Never Be Alone’ became a hit, championed by Erol Alkan, Tiga, 2 Many DJ's, Ivan Smagghe, Mark Moore, Arthur Baker, Miss Kittin, etc, and made waves through European clubs. Kids have been seen chanting the whole track while dancing to it, knowing every break and bass line by heart… In 2004, International Deejay Gigolos – legend DJ Hell's label – put out the EP again, featuring a remix by Hell himself. They then began to burn dance floors internationally starting riots around Europe in Munich, Berlin, Barcelona, Milan, Roma, Vienna, Brussels, London and the greatest Paris clubs, picking from Prince to Robert Armani, Beastie Boys to LFO.
Following its first successful EP, Justice is now signed to uber chic Parisian based label Because Music, the band will set about writing and recording their debut album, to be released September 2006.
Justice has been asked to nail down remixes for N*E*R*D*, VICARIOUS BLISS, SCENARIO ROCK, post-hardcore phenoms DEATH FROM ABOVE 1979, FATBOY SLIM, SOULWAX, MYSTERY JETS, DAFT PUNK, BRITNEY SPEARS, FRANZ FERDINAND… Although working for very different artists, Justice finds every time a way of making girls and boys dance frantically, with a discreet tear in the eye (because of the keyboards chords) while raising their fists (well, because of everything else).
