Justice fake DJ set - (false) panic in technolandPosted on 28/11/08
Panic in techno land as the French act Justice has been accused of faking their live DJ sets. All started when a picture taking during the band's DJ set in Manchester 'revealed' that Justice member Gaspard Augé was using an Akai drum pad which wasn't plugged in (see picture above). Augé however had a good explanation ready for our colleagues from Urb.com who had informed Justice about the existence of the picture: "Yeah, shit happens! (...) I didn't notice at first, because as you can see I was looking at the computer to launch the next vocal hook and right after I realised that the blue screen went black, so there was no way possible it could work. So I plugged it back in, big deal! And the next thing you know is this picture."
The Justice MySpace page features a series of photos taking during the event including the one below showing that the gear was plugged in again supporting the explanation Gaspard Augé gave.
It's not the first time the band is in the eye of a media storm. When they launched the official video clip for their single "Stress", the clip was boycotted by several TV-stations for being so-called racist. In the end the band dumped the video on YouTube. In the video the band portrays a gang of youngsters from the French suburbs who destroy and harass everything and everyone they get to meet on their 'trips'. Expect to see a bunch of French hoodlums (adorned with "†" jackets) walking around the streets of France smashing cars, beating up anyone who gets in their way, stealing old ladies' purses, and causing a general commotion before finally turning on the cameraman himself.
