news announcement #15
confirmed for Mad Cool 2018
Mad Cool Festival are thrilled to announce the addition of Parisian duo Justice to their 2018 roster.
Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay have created their own style within the dance music scene, injecting their own personal mix of house, disco and electro combined with high dosages of vintage spirit and indie rock.
The duo stood out in 2003 with Never Be Alone (We Are Your Friends): a remix from the British band Simian that quickly became a dance floor hymn. This display of talent helped them to become the favourite remixers of artist such as Britney Spears, N.E.R.D., Fatboy Slim, Daft Punk, and Franz Ferdinand. Having released several successful remixes, Justice took their sound worldwide with the release of their debut abum † (2007), containing hits like D.A.N.C.E. or Genesis.
Audio, Video, Disco (2011) took the ultimate risk in exploring new ground for the band. Justice demonstrated this by widening their sound spectrum with progressive rock elements and hair metal guitars; demonstrated on tracks like Civilization or New Lands.
Third album Woman (2016) boasted more of Augé and de Rosnay’s savoir faire: a playbox of brilliant disco and traditional influences, which turned worldwide dance floors upside down.
With these iconic albums in their arsenal and an extraordinary live presence featuring spectacular LED panels and their amazing visual effects, Justice’s performance promises to be the biggest party of Mad Cool 2018.
