Producers and musicians Xavier de Rosnay and Gaspard Augé make up the French dance-rock group Justice. The group's filtering of French House with indie-rock elements has made them figureheads in the late '00s indie dance scene.

The duo's 2003 remix of Simian's "Never Be Alone" first brought them to the public's attention. Former Daft Punk manager Pedro "Busy P" Winter subsequently signed them to Ed Banger Records, an influential label focusing on French dance-music artists. The duo built a reputation by remixing popular artists, such as Britney Spears, Fatboy Slim, and their aesthetic peers Daft Punk. They released their debut album, †, in 2007, and the lead single "D.A.N.C.E." and its accompanying video earned several award nominations.

 

After performing extensively at a number of festivals across the world, the duo released the controversial video to their song "Stress," which featured a gang of youth painting Paris red -- albeit through petty violence. In 2008 the group released a DVD documentary/live album titled A Cross the Universe. In 2009 the group announced a move to the re-launched Elektra records where they would release a follow-up album in 2010. During this interim period, the group has continued to release remixes of other artists, such as U2 and Lenny Kravitz. ~Dan Nishimoto
