Somerset House: Justice
LIVE REVIEW: The French duo play hits like We Are Your Friends and D.A.N.C.E in the pouring rain
Monday, July 14, 2008 - 16:17
The last time MTV caught Justice live was at their album launch party at Astoria 2 in 2007. Over a year later the French pair- Xavier de Rosnay and Gaspard Auge- are playing just down the road but things have changed. Tonight- on a wet July night- theyre live at the open air home of the Inland Revenue performing for at least 5 times as many people who now know most of the tracks. Their stage setting is more elaborate than 12 months ago too with 18 Marshall amps either side of their samplers and computers set-up (Are they turned on? Who cares!) Just-eeeece- as trendy Londoners putting on a French accent call them- start the set like they do on their banging debut album with Genesis The cross logo in the middle of their set up lights up intermittently and like their friends Daft Punk these two Frenchman also know the importance of a decent light show. Bravely they dispense with their two biggest hits within the first 15 minutes. D.A.N.C.E is at first stripped to just the vocals and piano prompting a mass sing-along. Soon enough though the hit is f*cked up into a gloriously heavy version. The crowd also sing along for second big single DVNO. Justices breakthrough remix of Simians We Are Your Friends brings the best out of the audience- jumping all over the place when the beat finally comes in. A nasty guitar sample and parts of Klaxons Atlantis To Interzone are also cut into the BIG tune. They wrap the show up with a version of Phantom Part II akin to the Soulwax remix which includes a massive silent gap and build up. Just as it kicks in the heavens open and it starts pouring with rain. The crowd couldnt care less.
