The French electro label, Ed Banger Records, that was founded just four years ago by Pedro Winter (aka Busy P and Daft Punk’s manager) has only eight signed artists which are all incredible. The favourites of Ed Records, Justice (made up of Frenchmen Xavier de Rosnay and Gaspard Augé), are currently on their first world tour and I was lucky enough to see them live at Metropolis in Montreal this past October. They also recently won two well-deserved awards at the MTV European Music Awards (Video Star and Best New French Artist). They sound like Jackson 5 mixed with Daft Punk and Metallica? They create a sound that blends electro with a clear rock influence and some of their remixes have a definite 70s pop vibe. My description really isn’t doing them any justice though (no pun intended).
Here are a few of my favourite Justice songs and remixes as well as an intro by Mr. Oizo for Ed Records Vol. 2 that was released in March which features all the artists.
