Civilization – Justice

The soundscape of 2007 was one of a “operatic-disco” in which bass lines were fuzzed and disco-tropes were fizzled out and strung back together. The commercial success of Justice and their album † was substantial for its label, Ed Banger Records, when, in 2007, the Justice remix of Simian’s “Never Be Alone” charted well in addition to the Uffie single entitled “Pop The Glock.” The sound of summer 2007 was dominated with the ubiquitous track “D.A.NC.E.” Given its multitude of remixes, samples, and mash-ups, “D.A.N.C.E.” is still seeing play counts today. But all of this may be no more.
Justice is back with a new single. While their sophomore LP is not set for release until April 4, 2011, the track “Civilization” is featured on a current Adidas commercial. As of now, there is no released version without the overwhelming foreground sounds of skateboarding, soccer matches, boxing, Katy Perry rehearsing, Super Bowl cheerleaders, and basketball games. But, for me, that’s just fine considering that I’m listening to a new Justice banger.
