Once again, it’s that time of year when we all retweet and re-post Coachella fliers on Facebook and Twitter. The line up was announced on January 9, featuring big artists such as Dr. Dre & Snoop Dog, Radiohead, the Black Keys, Justice, and many more! The concert will be held 2 consecutive weekends, from April 13-15, & 20-22. Check out the flier below!
Stay tuned for updates on Coachella parties! Ace hotel will be hosting another bangin’ party, so stick around! Check out last year’s Coachella party post HERE!
Here’s a new entertaining short video clip by Mr. Oizo featuring Flat Beat and Pharrell Williams.
In the November 2009 issue of MixMag, Justice stated that they will be producing the soundtrack to Mr. Oizo’s latest film Rubber, before they begin working on their new album. On March 6, Mr. Oizo announced the recording of his upcoming album called 2010. We will have more information on the album later, so stay tuned.
Update: According to official sources at Ed Banger Records, Beginning Of The End is a hoax. Along with other music sites/blogs, we received this track via email from a convincing-sounding address “firstname.lastname@example.org”… Oddly enough, this track sounds a lot like Justice… give it a listen below.
The French electro duo Justice are making a return with the release of their upcoming single, “Beginning Of The End.” This is the first original track they’ve produced and released since Planisphere, which was originally set to be a composition for the Dior Homme runway last year. Beginning Of The End begins with with the fanfare-like sound used in a few of their remixes (namely, the remix of Klaxons’ As Above So Below), and then switches gears and delivers a healthy dosage of electro beats climaxing to the sound of the signature distorted harpsichord synth first introduced in Planisphere.
Prior to listening, I was a bit skeptical of Justice’s return to production, as it had been quite a while since they’d put something out. Their debut album † is a tough one to follow; anything following would be judged by extremely high standards. However, after a listen, it seems as though they’re on the right track, picking up from where Planisphere left off… Justice is back.. and I bet after listening to this track, I won’t be the only person to be certain of the duo’s epic return to production.
About a month ago, we checked out Be the D.A.N.C.E. exhibit. On display were 70 Justice D.A.N.C.E.-inspired t-shirts hand-painted by Simone Wicks [hmm.. that's a lot of hyphens]. If you haven’t seen them yet, the designs are awesome. She’s planning on selling these shirts, so if you’re interested we’ll have details for you soon.
Justice‘s last album was released under the Because Music/ Ed Banger label, and was in some part responsible for the label’s recent successes.
I’m not too familiar with the details of the deal. Will this new change scar the connection between Justice and their former record label Ed Banger Records from France? What does their mentor Busy P think about all this? Will this change also have an impact on Justice’s funky style in their upcoming tracks as they progress through a more mainstream label? We’ll just have to wait till the time comes.
Elektra will simply control the distribution of the Ed Banger releases in the US.
Last night was the first part of our own take on the weekend that never dies. First, we were at the screening of A Cross The Universe, the new Justice documentary, sitting right aside Boys Noize and the Ed Rec Crew for the screening.
but that was just the beginning. We proceeded to the real deal…. got a Hard-on at HARD Haunted Mansion at the Shrine.
We will be in Vegas tonight for the Fabulous Festival, and back in LA for the DJ Falcon appearance at Banana Split Sundaes.
