Justice x H&M

You all know this kooky French duo for their heavy hitting dance tracks but did you know that theses gentlemen use to be graphic designers. Here is their major design debut for H&M, quite an interesting mashup. What do you think? It is straight up one of Gaspard’s outfits. I think they only agreed to do this cause Timbaland was on board this project.

Oh and Justice moved their MSG show to the smaller theatre at MSG, I knew that they wouldn’t be able to sell out the main arena. Silly Justice, you thought you were Daft Punk for a second.

Luck On Strike Interview

Exclusive Asian Dan Interview with Luck On Strike:

– Have you two been involved in any bands/musical projects previous to Luck On Strike?
Gauthier : I played rock and funk before going to electronic music.
Bertrand : I’ve been in several bands before, but it was such a pain to handle egos, delays, etc.
I currently have an electro pop project named Computerpop for which Gauthier helps me too. We have lots of songs in progress for it, but it’s a side project since we are very busy with Luck on Strike.

– What instruments do you guys play?
Gauthier : I play guitar, bass, I sing, and I program synths.
Bertrand : I’m not a musician in the classical sense since I don’t know musical theory. But I learned keyboard and music composing on my own. I’m more a synth/sampler/software programmer. Maybe one day I’ll find time to learn musical theory, I could open new perspectives to me.

– I don’t know if you guys are familiar with Jon Brion the producer/songwriter/film scorer who produced all of Fiona Apple’s albums and produced Kanye’s album Late Registration but he says that “He can never escape the Beatles”. What artist do you feel that you can never escape or always look to for inspiration? Musical or otherwise.
Bertrand : I know Jon Brion for being the music scorer for Eternal Sunshine (Gondry) or Magnolia. Score Music is what I listen to most. It’s hard to list what influences us since it’s quite wide and numerous. But I don’t feel trapped by a sound or a band because I love too many different kinds of them.
Gauthier : Well, Daft Punk made electronic music a mainstream genre, and I think that we cannot escape them in the same way rock cannot escapes blues : the genre evolves, but the roots remains. This doesn’t prevent from writing good songs and find your own way and sound.

– What are your three of favorite songs/albums right now?
Bertrand :
1. The Buggles – Video kill the radio star (the production is incredible)
2. Daft Punk – Discovery (It showed that it was possible to make a true electronic music album very popular. It opened another door after Homework).
3. Vangelis – Blade Runner OST (Incredible analog synthesis)

Gauthier :
What I’m listening to today :
1. Zoot Woman – We won’t break (track)
2. Pearl Jam – Vitalogy (album)
3. King Crimson – In the court of the Crimson King (album)

– What is your favorite piece of studio equipment?
Bertrand : We work apart most often, so we each have a home studio plus a third one for the vocal takes. At home I love my mac book, my Virus and my Juno 106.
Gauthier : My hand made vocal booth in studio B (studio A is home…). Great microphones and great preamps are useless without a good place to make the takes.

– What software/hardware do you use?
Bertrand : Cubase SX3, Kontakt for my drums kits and a bunch of freewares. Gauthier is teaching me Ableton Live.
Gauthier : I’ve tried some different kinds of software, and achieved the same sound on the output. So I came back to SX3 to exchange works in progress with Bertrand easily, but software don’t matter that much to me. Hardware is something else : I’m mad about vintage/modern guitar pedals, I love my Juno 106, etc. These are irreplaceable.

– I see that you guys use Ableton Live in a very “musical” way like DJ Falcon, by creating mashups of loops and grooves.
Gauthier : Yes, Bertrand and I are preparing a kind of live mashup where we play against each other, to raise the pressure. Live is like a video game to me. We have controllers so we touch our laptops as least as we can.

– Any shows/DJ sets coming up? Any releases coming up?
Gauthier : We’ve been busy with production until now, but we’re going back to the stage soon. We’re in discussion with several records labels, so we cannot talk about releases now.

– I saw that you guys are fans of anime, what are your thoughts on the live action Dragonball movie they are making?
Bertrand : I’m not mad about manga, but I like it. I’m a bit skeptical about this project. It’s gonna be hard to translate such a popular and recognisable anime. I think that cinema has still technical limitations while anime doesn’t, even with the best effects. But I hope it’s gonna be a good surprise.

I am in love with this track, download and listen now!

Coachella 2008 Line Up

Tickets go on sale Jan 25 10 am, through Ticketmaster. This years Coachella is dominated by Ed Banger and their gang of electronic musicians, might as well call this I Love Techno Festival: American Edition. I would definitely go for Midnight Juggernauts, Battles, and Minus The Bear on the first day, Kraftwerk, Boys Noize, Surkin, Para One, SebastiAn and Kavinsky on the second, and Justice, Chromeo, Les Savy Fav, and Holy Fuck on the third.

Thom Yorke played this track on during their Radio 1 takeover, he said this is a track you play when you wake up to a beautiful day.

These New Puritans

I was listening to the Klaxons Radio 1 takeover last night and I really liked the track they played by These New Puritans, a fellow English band that is on their old label Angular Records. They even opened for the Klaxons on a past UK tour. Their music is likened to The Fall because of the very Mark E. Smith vocals but I’m sure singer, Jack Barnett does not beat his wife. Jack’s brother George use to be a model for Dior Homme and These New Puritans were commissioned by Dior to make a soundtrack for their recent runway show. A lot of their music reminds me of Blonde Redhead, circa In An Expression of the Inexpressible. Beat Pyramid comes out Jan 28 on Angular Records/Domino Records, and I really hope they tour the US soon.

Here is the track Klaxons spun on Radio1:
