Justice finally return to the Essential Mix this weekend
Justice crept out of their Parisian studio hideout this year brandishing a new full length LP, Woman, which proved to be our album of the year in 2016. The press junket behind the record was typical for Justice: a steady stream of tantalizing singles, enigmatic, rare online pop ups, and of course, a second Essential Mix (their first in nearly a decade) as the icing on the cake.
The Essential Mix was every bit as anticipated as the album itself, with fans starved to hear a broader scope of Justice’s new vision. However, just ahead of the mix’s debut, Gaspard and Xavier had to postpone their appearance due to scheduling conflicts, promising fans that the session would air before year’s end.
Delivering on their promise, the duo are lined up to take over the BBC Radio 1 decks this weekend on Saturday, December 17. The second Justice Essential Mix will arrive nearly one month to the day after Woman‘s release, and now that fans have had the proper amount of time to digest the pair’s latest studio offering, the anticipation is somehow higher now than it was a month ago.
The French electro factotums put up a strong effort for album of the year, they reasserted themselves at the top of everyone’s production radar, and now they’re primed to drop what is likely to be one of the top Essential Mixes of 2016 as well.
