Justice – Canon (Erol Alkan’s Extended Rework) (2012)

Scroll down to content

You know you’ve made it when you’ve had an Erol Alkan remix. His latest clients – joining the likes of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Metronomy and Franz Ferdinand – are French duo Justice, whose recent Audio, Video, Disco album was shrouded in a prog-meets-techno fog. On this re-rub of Canon – premiered on The Guardian Music  exclusively – the cloud isn’t so much cleared as blasted away, Alkan taking the track’s noodly guitar riffs and giant synth slabs and bolting a proverbial rocket to them. The whole thing shifts three and a half minutes in. The brilliantly daft central riff starts to descend and then just hangs there, building slowly for two minutes until a juddering bassline kicks in and you’re head goes a bit funny. Probably best listen to this on your lunch break. Canon (Erol Alkan remix) is featured on the On’n’On remixes EP, which is due on 30 January and can be pre-ordered here. [Source]
