The French electronic duo Justice formed in 2003 but, after making its mark with recordings and remixes, didn’t play its first live show until the 2007 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.
But the group’s Xavier de Rosnay says he and partner Gaspard Auge feel comfortable presenting their music — including the dance club hit “Never Be Alone” — in front of audiences.
“We just took a long time to think about how to perform live music,” explains de Rosnay, 25. “What we do is not live; it’s very much created in the studio. So it took us a long time just to find a way to make it work in a live setting.”
Justice has released one album and a series of EPs, and has remixed songs for
Britney Spears, N*E*R*D, Daft Punk
and others. These days de Rosney says he and Auge are mostly focusing on their live show, and he won’t hazard a guess as to when they’ll venture into the studio again.
“If we don’t have the will to make another album, if we don’t have ideas, we won’t force ourselves,” he says. “We’ll just wait and see how things happen. I want to do more tours, so we’ll wait and see. It’s cool this way.”
