Justice, rock and dance floors

It seems that the French climate has a special effect upon the musicians of that country. Thus, Justice are not the first representatives of that state, who got their well-deserved acknowledgement and respect all over the world. It all started with the remix for the song Never Be Alone – the work of Gaspard Augй and Xavier de Rosnay proved to be so strong, that they decided to move forward. The duo prepared their debut studio work called Cross by 2007. That long play satisfied all the expectations, while numerous famous musical issues included it into their lists of best albums of 2007. Meanwhile, Justice kept on pleasing listeners with brand new remixes. For MGMT's track Electric Feel the French musicians got the Grammy award in 2009. However they succeeded not only in creating remixes: the band’s original material proved to be amazing as well, and hits from Cross demonstrate it perfectly. Four years later Justice prepared the new material, which is a logical continuation of the basic concept of their previous album. We got the same awesome cocktail of guitars, integrated into the mass of rich electronic sound, but this time the general mood turned out to be a little bit lighter and not so aggressive. And this time Gaspard and Xavier showed their passion to rock once again – guitars took an extremely important place in Audio, Video, Disco compositions.

Audio, Video, Disco – an outstanding musical cocktail

So, what is going to happen, when musicians decide to combine their favorite genres in the creativity: electronic music and seventies’ rock at its finest? Obviously, it leads to amazing cocktail with incredible energy. At the same time the French musicians’ new album seems to be a bit lighter and less aggressive that its predecessor. The composition Horsepower plays a role of an opening track, and it is a great example of peaceful coexistence of guitar melodies and electronica. It is followed by Civilization, a mid-tempo track with a powerful sound and a rememberable melody. Probably, the motives from Audio, Video, Disco can easily become an object of envy of many rock bands, as soon as Justice made a huge work. One cannot find a simple minimalist beat on the record: it is a kingdom of melodies. Make sure to pay attention to the song Parade – its intro reminds of the “stadium rock” bloom. The confident conclusion in the album is brought by the title track Audio, Video, Disco.

Ideal crossover

It feels that Justice made a confident step forward, in spite of the fact that their first long play was more than just good. However the musicians decided not to stay still, and as the result, they created an amazing continuation for Cross. A part of composition from the new album was recorded alongside with the invited musicians: Midnight Juggernauts from Australia, the British artist Ali Love and others made their contribution to the creation of amazing Audio, Video, Disco atmosphere. To the great pleasure of many fans, the duo did not change the direction and did not experiment with the sound dramatically. Thereby listeners got the signature mix of rock and electronica, and this time – a bit more optimistic one. Justice keep on pleasing music lovers, and who knows, what surprises will be waiting for us on their following album? But anyways, nobody questions its highest quality, this is for sure.
