You’d do your music palette an injustice to not catch award-winning French electro duo Justice doing what they do best behind the decks. The masterminds behind global hits like DANCE and We Are Your Friends, Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay have gone some way in bridging the divide between the staunchly hipster and the unfettered glowstick-waving EDM fan. 

Since starting out over a decade ago, Justice have become recognised for their masterful manipulation of the typical disco and funk elements of electro house artistry. The pair are also known for their rock and metal influences. Over the years, their versatility and talent has snowballed into their uniquely beloved status of ‘electronica that rocks’ among both the underground elite and the pop-loving masses. From the prestigious Congress Theatre in Chicago to niche festivals around Europe, Justice’s style seduces all types of music-loving crowds.

Having toured the world since the debut of their epic first album (Cross) in 2007, the duo have made a raucous mark at nearly every major music festival across Europe and the Americas. With their remix and production skills, they have collaborated with a bevy of big names, from Britney Spears to Franz Ferdinand, and interpreted the magnum opuses of giants, from Lenny Kravitz’s Let Love Rule to MGMT’s Electric Feel (casually bagging a Grammy for the latter). Their second studio album Audio, Video, Disco was released in 2011 to great acclaim. And impatience for their third – announced last year – is the mood consensus.

The hallmark of quality electro house is how easy it is to enjoy. Clubber, hipster or office worker the funky rhythm beat’s the same once you’ve slid into KITEC’s open space, so give Justice’s set a go, whatever your taste. A bit of sweet Justice is what we all crave in Hong Kong. Ivan Suen
