It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly 20 years since Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay AKA Justice released their unstoppable debut album Cross, after which the music world would never be the same.
Today the guys have announced their fourth studio album, Hyperdrama - their first since 2016’s Woman. Not one to do things by halves, they’ve dropped not one but two new singles - One Night/All Night starring Tame Impala and Generator.
A soaring, funky slice of indie electro, speaking on their collab with Tame Impala, Justice say “We wanted this track to sound as if a dark/techno iteration of Justice had found a sample of a disco iteration of Kevin Parker. Kevin has a sense of melody that’s fascinating in the sense that he manages to write melodies that feel both simple and natural, but very peculiar at the same time. This song oscillates between pure electronic music and pure disco but you never really get the two at the same time. This very idea of switching instantly from a genre to another within a song runs through the whole record, and is maybe showcased the clearest in ‘One Night/All Night’”.
Meanwhile, Generator infuses some dark 90s hardcore sounds with their signature brand of electro with the band explaining “To us, this one sounds like “Getaway” by the Salsoul Orchestra, but with gabber and classic 90s hardcore techno sounds. Disco/funk and electronic music at large have always been core elements of the music we make as Justice. In ‘Hyperdrama’, we make them coexist, but not in a peaceful way. We like this idea of making them fight a bit for attention.”
