Proving just how all-encompassing the French touch style can be, Justice builds on its vintage funk, disco and house foundations by adding prog, metal, new wave, indie, and a lot of devil-may-care attitude. Starting with Grammy-nominated 2007 single ‘D.A.N.C.E.’ and that year’s full length † (aka Cross), the Parisian duo defined the brash, stylish, yet tongue-in-cheek appeal of their label, Ed Banger Records, in the mid-to late 2000s.
From there, the music made by Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay only grew bolder and more unexpected. They cranked up the riffs on 2011’s Audio, Video, Disco, collaborated with the London Contemporary Orchestra on 2016’s Woman and mashed up their own songs on 2018’s Grammy-winning Woman Worldwide. With every release, Justice have reimagined the genre-bending possibilities of a world where all music is available to hear –and recombine– in an instant. Their last adventure has been Augé’s first solo album, Escapades (2021).
