Justice release 15th anniversary deluxe edition of ‘†’
The record in its entirety, with a host of unearthed and previously unreleased tracks
Justice have released a 15th anniversary deluxe edition of their landmark debut album, ‘†’, which is available to stream and buy now.
Six bonus tracks are included in the new version, with previously unreleased outtake 'Donna' and a near-forgotten remix of the tune 'D.A.N.C.E.' featuring Logic among the rare work that has been unearthed. Check both out below. Multiple demos also feature.
The award-winning duo, AKA Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay, have been celebrating their decade-and-a-half milestone with a slew of reissues, including fresh vinyl pressings of 2008's celebrated live record, 'A Cross the Universe', and the Dior soundtrack, 'Planisphere', which was first released the same year. A digital-only 'D.A.N.C.E.' EP has also arrived, containing all iterations and remixes of the titular anthem.
First arriving in 2007 on Ed Banger Records, ‘†’ is credited with helping kickstart a new era in dance music which positioned producers as headline rock acts. The record was greeted with critical acclaim across the board, and received nominations for Best Electronic/Dance Album at that year's Grammy Awards and the Shortlist Prize, honouring the best LPs to sell less than 500,000 in the US.
