Gaspard Augé and Xaviar de Rosnay, two dudes who have become (electro)household names in the dance circuit these past few seasons, topped off the magic t-shirted/metal-blended personal-brand success of ? with the live CD/DVD A Cross The Universe last year. It’s yielded triumphant concert videos, and more importantly it’s proven that nobody remixes Justice as well as Justice: “Tthhee Ppaarrttyy,” which featured Ed Banger-mate Uffie in its original, crucified form, turned up on the live release with a newly configured, comparatively spare yet very slamming backing track. (In fact, this new version sounds more Justice-y than Justice’s original. So much Justice.) Uffie’s b-girl scenester hyping remains, which is a good thing, because with this total resurrection it literally wouldn’t be “Tthhee Ppaarrttyy” without her.
Justice (Feat. Uffie) – “Tthhee Ppaarrttyy (A Cross Version)” (.WAX)
“Tthhee Ppaarrttyy” will get a digital release on 2/24. The A Cross The Universe CD/DVD is out now. Both via Atlantic.
