Everybody’s looking for the new Daft Punk, no one ever thought to look in Daft Punk’s own backyard. French electronic duo Justice is here to get the masses moving again. The act is set to release their next EP “D.A.N.C.E.” on 4/16 through Ed Banger Records. The label happens to be run by Busy P, who manages Daft Punk as well as Justice. Coincidence? Methinks not. “D.A.N.C.E.” and “Phantom” are two highlights from the EP. “Phantom” comes equipped with the fattest of synths and a sick arsenal of slap bass. It opens with stuttering robot talk before the heavy one-two drum rhythm kicks in. Lead lines jump in and out in a cut-and-paste fashion before the mothership-synth lands to clear the dancefloor, only to bring back the funk harder than before. “D.A.N.C.E.” sound like The Go! Team fronting a disco outfit. A school of kids persuade you to “Do the D.A.N.C.E.” backed by retro-chic 70’s style string stabs. Apparently, this version of “D.A.N.C.E.” is only a demo, which leads me to wonder how the final version could be any better. One can only hope. In the mean time, shut up and robot.
