Justice are releasing a CD/vinyl hybrid of ‘Woman’; behold it in all its glory
Justice‘s Woman excelled in pushing genre barriers – so much so, in fact, that we’ve named it our number one album of 2016. Now, the duo are pushing technological barriers in an unusual way. Justice’s third studio album has been available in CD, vinyl, and digital formats since mid-November. However, the duo’s backing label, Ed Banger, has created a prototype which melds these formats, allowing the album to played on vinyl and in any CD drive.
Justice uploaded a video to their Instagram today, December 7, that shows a CD/vinyl hybrid of Woman in action. Captioned, “•WOMAN• one side CD / one side VINYL – this very limited edition is a prototype (first ever!) and is not yet for sale.” The video sees Ed Banger label-head Busy P showing off the progressively retro format to astounded cameraman Glenjamn. Though no release date for this multi-functional iteration of the album has been set, it will the ultimate collectors item for any Justice fan.
Imagine being able to appreciate the warmth of Xavier and Gaspard’s tertiary LP on a record player, then blasting “RANDY” in the Honda Accord’s CD player, and then becoming giddy with excitement upon the recollection that the Woman CD/vinyl can be transferred onto iTunes via any computer with a CD drive. Sure, the album is available on every major online streaming platform, but didn’t that scenario sound titillating?
