The world was stunned when Justice's remix of U2's "Get On Your Boots" hit the interwebs. Though I'm not really sure why. It's no secret that Justice are big pop music fans. Gaspard and Xavier have remixed Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake in the past, remember? However, I have to admit that their latest remixing move sort of left me in minor shock; why is Justice remixing someone as irrelevant as Lenny Kravitz?
The fact that Team Kravitz hired Justice to remix the titular track off of Kravitz's 20th Anniversary re-release of, Let Love Rule, lead me to believe Justice were handed a nice fat check (or cheque) for this remix.
On the "Let Love Rule 2009" remix, we find a Justice that is still riding hard on the creative tour de force they unleashed on their era-defining album, †, in 2007. But like most artists who don't stray from the path they paved a few years back (hello Timbaland, Justin Timberlake), things start to seem typical, repetitive, and hell, even become a musical typecast.
I'm a big fan of Justice and †, but I think I'm ready for something new. Can we finally say this without lying? R.I.P. †-era. You had a real great run. Let's finish it off with this remix.
PS: I didn't think their remix of "Get On Your Boots" was repetitve or typical. Really great stuff. Justice 2.0?
