Track Review: Justin Timberlake “LoveStoned (Justice remix)”

    Shit-hot French house duo Justice are no strangers to the art of the high profile remix – they’ve turned in takes on tracks by Britney Spears, Daft Punk, Franz Ferdinand, Mystery Jets, Fatboy Slim among others. Now we get this strangely emasculated take on JT’s “LoveStoned,” the fifth single to ooze out of Futuresex/Lovesounds. Justice plays up the string loops and synth blasts from the original, stripping away its jittery vocal percussion and bass ostinatos entirely. And while it’s nice to hear Timberlake’s not-so-latent Off the Wall disco influence laid bare, there’s not much excitement in Justice’s version, at least not until the Daft Punk-style analog meltdown at the 3:30 mark.
