Justice Headlining Ed Banger 10th Anniversary at Hammerstein Ballroom

The former manager of Daft Punk Pedro Winter has a lot to celebrate. As the brains behind the likes of larger-than-life acts like Justice, Breakbot, SebastiAn, Mr. Oizo, and his own alter-ego Busy P, over the years Pedro has turned Ed Banger's persona into a culture not just a record label. Along with the producers of Saturday's biggest club night Brite Nites, Webster Hall and Area Event, Ed Banger is on a collision course with one of our favorite venues, Hammerstein Ballroom for a Saturday night celebration ten years in the making. The lineup includes a DJ set by Justice, a megamix by Busy P himself, and a live performance from Breakbot, a fellow I can vouch for as an excellent spinner. Special guests are also on the roster. Tickets go onsale next Wednesday at 12 EST on Ticketmaster, see you there!

"We Are Your Friends" (Chrys Pasqualotto Mashup)

The awesome anthem everyone knows and loves "We Are Your Friends" by Mystery Key vs Justice has just been blown into an even higher energy booster by new Brazilian DJ Chrys Pasqualotto. The build ups in the song are sure to stir up just as much anticipation as Justice's follow up album to Audio, Video, Disco, and I guarantee if you want to get the party started in any situation, this is your new best friend. If your anything like me, a song you like is a song you want to listen to the entire length every time, and this is it. Put it on and press repeat because you’ll be rocking to this song all night.

Killer New Electro Track "Holloback" from SebastiAn

While partying at home in beautiful South Florida, my friends turned me on to the French producerm & DJ SebastiAn (Sebastian Akchoté). This artist has kept busy recently releasing several remixes and collaborations with artists like Skrillex, Justice, and Nero, just to name a few. This new release, "Holloback," is featured on his The EP Collection which dropped earlier this year on Ed Banger records. Hopefully you guys like the song and check out more music from this killer electro producer!

Review: Justice at Ultra Music Festival

After waiting 5 years since the release of their debut album † (Cross), I finally got to see Justice LIVE at Ultra Music Festival in Miami this March.

Headlining the festival Saturday night behind Avicii, Justice brought much excitement to the main stage area with their elaborate set of sound equipment resembling a church altar, with a giant, glowing cross in the middle. 

 

The crowd went wild as the French duo unleashed their heavy electric beats on the crowd, opening with perhaps the most well known track off of Cross, "Genesis." The majority of their set consisted of other popular tracks from Cross. 

Justice owned the crowd with their hit disco track "D.A.N.C.E." The sea of people stuck to "the B.E.A.T." as they moved to the sound of "Do the D.A.N.C.E." Other obvious crowd favorites were "DVNO," which they did a hard live mix of, "Stress," and "Phantom Pt. 2," the Daft Punk-like house track.

I must to admit I was not the biggest fan of Justice's second release, Audio, Video, Disco. I consistently felt when listening to the album that the two had abandoned their hard and heavy roots in favor of less-inspired soft, electro melodies. Although the various tracks that the two played from the new album were not at the level of those off their previous release, some tracks were definitely noteworthy.

"Helix," the song that was featured in the Ultra Music Festival 2012 Phase 1 Lineup Announcement video, was a definite crowd favorite with its rock-inspired melodies. "Audio, Video, Disco," the title track off their newest release was also a highlight.

I will, however, note that compared to many other performers, Justice didn't seem to go over quite as well with the massive main stage crowd. Perhaps because their hits were released more than 5 years ago many younger festival attendees failed to recognize their sound. Nevertheless, Justice was undeniably one of the highlights of Ultra Music Festival for me this year, and they are sure to be a crowd pleaser at Coachella this month in California. Their skills in both production and live mixing impressed me greatly and it was great to finally see this epic group on tour.
