Justice releases ‘Chorus (WWW)’ off highly anticipated ‘Woman Worldwide’ album, dropping Aug. 24Justice Woman Worldwide Chorus

Justice have released the third single, “Chorus (WWW),” off their highly anticipated 15-track Woman Worldwide album, set to drop Aug. 24 via Ed Banger Records / Because Music. Alongside the new track, Gaspard and Xavier also dropped the teaser video for Woman Worldwide. The remade “Chorus” track from their 2016 Woman album takes liberty of the catchy synth melody by adding a driving four-on-the-floor kick that transforms the original into their signature style of electro-house madness. Long-form anticipation remains a focal point for the remake project.

Woman Worldwide is a result of Justice re-writing several of the Woman album’s pieces while performing them live on tour. Discovery of new sonic avenues within countless crowd experimentation brought them back to their studio in Paris to polish their newer versions.

With the album just one week away, Justice are embarking on a special four-city screening of the VR experience “Chorus VR,” developed in partnership with WITHIN. Premiered earlier at this year’s 2018 Sundance Film Festival, “Chorus VR” transforms the experiencer into a fantastical female warrior with a journey ahead of her in faraway Tron-like fantasy worlds from the ’80s. The VR experience will open in Los Angeles, Paris, Sydney, and Brussels on Aug. 23.

Justice will continue to tour across the globe with upcoming festival dates at Austin City Limits and Life Is Beautiful.

Though Justice‘s three studio albums are impressive on their own, the groundbreaking French duo have always thrived in the live environment, crafting meticulously calculated, legendary audio-visual performances. In preparation for their upcoming third live LP, Woman Worldwide, Justice have shared a stunning video of their performance of “Randy” at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris from last year.

Clocking in at a ample seven minutes, the video captures the true magnitude and intensity of the band’s live production. From the light-equipped pyramid of speakers stacked behind Gaspard and Xavier to the dazzling spotlights moving across the crowd, every visual aspect of the show accentuates the music it accompanies. The Frenchmen can be seen here performing the live version of “Randy,” cranking up the track’s hard-hitting industrial appeal that largely stays in the shadows of the original mix. Celebrating more than a decade of mind-bending live shows behind them and even more live edits underway, Justice drop off a tantalizing visual tease ahead of Woman Worldwide‘s August 24 release.

Justice take us back to ‘Woman’ through live album ‘Woman Worldwide’

2016 ended on a high note for Justice fans, who were treated to the duo’s third studio album Woman in November. It was unabashedly Justice; filled with nostalgic hits of disco, funk, electro, and house, yet arranged in a way that is modern and built to endure. Furthermore, it stood out as a veritable piece of artwork among a sea of monotonous singles.

An Essential Mix and an expansive world tour later, Gaspard and Xavier have returned with a refreshed vision for Woman. They’ve re-written several of the album’s pieces whilst performing them live, and have since assembled them into a brand new live album titled Woman Worldwide. However, this isn’t a run-of-the-mill live album, in that Justice have more or less created a brand new body of work out of their re-creations.

The storied pair have marked the occasion with the debut of “D.A.N.C.E. x Fire x Safe and Sound,” a livening combination of their three album singles that have been re-imagined into a fluid, high-charged new piece of music. Its energy is truly infectious.

Justice fan posts memorial for deceased iPod on Reddit, then something remarkable happens

This post was originally published on this site

Oftentimes, we build up our most revered icons into deities — in tune with their fans, but maintaining a considerable a degree of celebrity disconnection. Its hard to imagine Daft Punk or Carl Cox surfing the comments sections or sifting through Reddit, but alas, we are sometimes reminded in humbling ways that our favorite creators are just people too. Recently, redditor and Justice fan effennekappa took to the forum to express a memorial post celebrating the lengthy life, and now tragic death of his resilient 160GB iPod. The mp3 brick, adorned with a decal of Justice’s iconic †, belonged to its owner for a decade before it succumbed to natural causes.

“I’ve spent 10 years with this 160gb monster in my pocket, it’s been with me in every single trip, journey and commute I’ve made since I was 20. Today it played its last song. Farewell, you magnificent bastard,”

lamented effennekappa in the thread’s headline.

But as the post began picking up traction online, something remarkable happened. Lo and behold, the Parisian DJs eventually hopped into the thread to pay their respects, offering to personally replace the man’s iPod. The post became one of Reddit’s top posts of the day, with the duo even mentioning they’d replace the iPod with some added new music. Could this mention of new music be Justice’s upcoming studio/live album concept? That would make for a legendary album teaser, but for now, we’re reminded that Xavier and Gaspard are a regular couple of mensches, and even when we’re not awarte of it, sometimes our favorite artists are watching us closely too.

Celebrate the life of effennekappa’s iPod by enjoying Woman today.

Justice have shared the new music video for “Stop” from the duo’s lauded 2016 LP WomanThe new feature, animated by another French creative pairing, illustrators Mrzyk & Moricea, accents the dreamy, slow-burn disco cut with a synesthetic dose of neon that perfectly completes the song’s retro aesthetic. Scaling back the album’s psychedelic dance ballad to a leaner radio edit, the “Stop” video winds and weaves through a spacial landscape of shifting imagery, projecting some of Justice’s most iconic visual staples along with plenty of stimulating graphic symbolism.

The video comes in conjunction with more good news for Justice fans. The French electro visionaries are currently amid a packed international touring circuit in support of their most recent studio album, and they’ve just added a rare live stream event to their itinerary.

Know for their uplifting, energetic progressive house sound, Midnight Kids are quickly garnering support in the dance music scene as one of the most promising up-and-coming acts of 2018. Although they are currently an underground project, Midnight Kids has created several moving pieces, engineering a seamless production style with an unpredictable edge. Although Midnight Kids has been producing mainly euphoric progressive house tracks, their style has shifted in their latest: a remix of Justice‘s “Phantom.”

Midnight Kids’ “Phantom” remix features a darker side of the artists’ engineering capabilities. With ominous throttles of bass, an eerie, prominent melody, and unwavering layers of synth during each climax, Midnight Kids’ remix flaunts an innovative versatility that gives listeners a sound they haven’t heard before from the two producers. They set the stage for a new tone, showcasing the artists’ diverse skill in production.
