#13 And Now for Something Completely Different...

Today I bring you an article that strays a little from what you might be used to. We are going to present to you Justice!

Justice is an Electro House duo out of France who's first album was nominated for a Grammy for "Best Electronic/Dance Album", but lost to The Reminder by Feist.

Early Beginnings

Justice first made their break with a remix of "Never be Alone" by Simian. From there, they were signed by Ed Banger Records. From there, they released one original track, Never Be Alone," and then worked on remixes for many larger mainstream artists such as; Daft Punk, Brittany Spears and Fat Boy Slim.

In 2005, Justice released their first single "Waters of Nazareth" and put out their debut album in 2007. Since the release of and with their appearances at such festivals as Coachella, Fuji Rock Festival, Pukkelpop, and others world wide, their populatirty has sky rocketed.

Favorite Album

Well with only one studio album, †, I would have to say that it is my favorite album. They do have a very good live album/dvd set called A cross the Universe, which is definitely worth checking out. It documents their shenanigans during their North American tour. Just to give you an example, at one point Xavier breaks a bottle over this one guy and they get arrested. It's pretty awesome.

All and all, if you like the beats, but still want some banging tracks to please your inner rocker check out Justice.
