Justice, They Are Your Friends

Justice vs. Simian – We Are Your Friends

In the spirit of going through my favorites towards the beginning, I have to give a shout-out to Justice.  They hail from the motherland of electronic music, France, and they do a great job of representing the name.  Their heavily distorted synths have a strong rock influence, and it shows in their fashion sense as well.  We’ll have to wait for their sophomore album to decide their true staying power, but I have a feeling the name Justice is going to be a household name.  I’ve heard some predictions that Justice is the next Daft Punk.  I wouldn’t go that far, but they’re pretty damn good!  Definitely check out their album Cross.  It’s got a couple Grammy nominations to its name and one of the coolest music videos I’ve seen in a long time with D.A.N.C.E.

The track for the day is going to be the one Justice got it all started with.  They released their remix of Simian’s Never Be Alone, entitled We Are Your Friends as an entry to a remix contest for a Paris college radio station.  They easily won the competition with it and were subsequently signed to Ed Banger records based on the sheer success of this track, so you know it has to kick ass.  Enjoy!
