In 2011, Justice followed up on their acclaimed 2007 debut LP, † with their highly anticipated sophomore album, Audio, Video, Disco. Self-described by the veteran Parisian hitmakers as “a progressive rock record, played by guys that don’t know how to play,” Justice’s sophomore album takes their French-house style to a deeper, headier dimension, cinematically blurring the lines between rock and dance music, coming together as a dramatic, distorted blend of airtight electronic greatness.
“Civilization,” “Audio, Video, Disco,” “On’n’On,” “New Lands,” and “Helix” all served as singles from the record, which would go on to become catalog hallmarks, and some of the pair’s most beloved works to date. Despite the record being the Ed Banger duos only LP without a Grammy nomination, Justice did manage to garner significant critical acclaim once again for Audio, Video, Disco, netting a gold certification in 2012, and inspiring Access All Arenas, which was recorded at the Arena of Nîmes in France that summer.
