And Did We Mention.... The French Invasion!

And Did We Mention Our Disco? Has been one of the consistantly best small club nights over the last 3 years. Unfortunately Our disco got pushed out from its weekly Friday nights down at Plastic People by the owners of the club wanting to try something different. (Why get rid of one of the most fresh and eclectic nights, which attracts huge crowds every weekend to try something different?) The phrase "If it ain't broke... " springs to mind.

Anyway left in the club wilderness, with no permanent home Our Disco now does one-off parties, the last great one was a free bash at London's Canvas, which was mind blowing. So when I heard about the next one this Saturday featuring Justice, Mr Oizo, SebastiAn, Feadz, Kavinsky et al, I nearly creamed my shorts with excitment! Go to Our Disco for ticket info.

And what a line-up they have extracted from across the channel. Everyone thought the French filtered disco sound had run its course a few years back, but you can guarantee whenever you write-off a scene it is bound to rear its ugly head up again and bite you in the ass. The new sound has taken the old filtered sound, turned it up to 11 and put it through the electro shreader to make a sound so filthy it will strip the paint off walls at 50 yards.

It is with this in mind I have decided once more to honour the new masters of filthy electro Justice. Their new Waters of Nazareth Part 2 EP is out today with new mixes by Erol Alkan, Justice themselves and DJ Funk. However it is for their remixes that they have gained their awesome reputation, so it is with great pleasure that below is a selection of their best. From Death From Above 1979, Soulwax, Vicarious Bliss, Daft Punk, Franz Ferdinand, through to the still magnificent (it doesn't matter how many times you hear it!) Justice vs Simian - Never Be Alone (We Are Your Friends), which has also been re-released.

Daft Punk - Guy-Man After All (Justice Mix)

Mr Oizo - Nazis (Justice Mix)

Soulwax - NY Excuse (Justice Mix)

Vicarious Bliss - Theme From Vicarious Bliss (Justice Mix)

Death From Above 1979 - Blood On Our Hands (Justice Mix)

Franz Ferdinand - The Fallen (Justice Mix)

Special mention has to go to Ed Banger records and to So_Me the illustrator responsible for some of the best artwork to grace record sleeves in recent years.

Ahhhh! Why Z-Share? I don't think that you can download file from Z-Share onto Macs. Is there another way you could repost it?

Like the way you did the Syclops track . . . please?
I have a mac and it is fine, Just click on the link, and then click on 'download this file now' just above the player. It takes you to a page where you can download the link directly. Zshare has been playing up recently so if there is more problems I'll switch again.
Horray!!! That totally helped. Now I can have my drums shredded to bit on my ipod.

Thanks for the Justice . . . SUPREME JUSTICE!!! Bwahahahaha!
Great stuff - thank you.
Yes I agree So_Me does some really recordsleeves. There was an interview/special with him, and Pedro Winter, in an issue of Lodown back in 05. Nice stuff ceheck it out.

Oh and Vice and Ed Banger rec throws a party on the 17 june in Barcelona during sónar with Justice, Pedro, Uffie and so on.
