Justice have confirmed plans to debut a new film called 'Iris' at this year's SXSW in Texas.
The film, which is described as a space opera, is directed by Andre Chemetoff and Armand Beraud and offers an adaptation of the duo's Woman Worldwide live show which they toured through 2017 and 2018 in support of their album of the same name.
In the fickle world of dance music where trends come and go like the tide, a label that manages to remain relevant without compromising its initial vision is a rarity; a label that’s done it for 15 years is a miracle. Celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, Ed Banger Records’ visionary Pedro Winter (who previously managed Daft Punk) has made the label’s journey look easy.

The analogue synth craze is out of control. It’s hit its apex with SURVIVE’s John Carpenter-style soundtrack to Netflix sci-fi show Stranger Things. Now everyone’s jumping on the synth bandwagon.

Justice’s BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, which was due to air this weekend, has been postponed until later in the year.
