Justice: 'Remixing doesn't interest us at the moment'
Band also speak about their 'electronic record for the countryside'
The French duo, who released their second album 'Audio, Video, Disco' late last year, made their name through their remixes of tracks by the likes of Klaxons, U2, MGMT and particularly with their 2006 remix of 'We Are Your Friends'.
However, they have now said that they wish to focus on touring and will not be offering up any new remixes for the foreseeable future. Asked about this by The Sun, the pair replied:
Remixing is something which doesn't really interest us for the moment. Only if we find something challenging. At the moment we are happy doing what we are doing — focusing 100 per cent on the live show.
The pair also spoke about their hopes for 'Audio, Video, Disco' and said that they believe they've made "an electronic record for the day and the countryside", referring to their wish for people to want to listen to the album during the day as well as when they're out on the town.
They said of this: "We love making albums and they make more sense than single tracks. We wanted to make a daytime record that wasn't all neon lights. Electronic music has always been regarded as music for the night and cities. So we wanted to make electronic record for the day and the countryside."
Justice have just completed a five-date UK tour as part of the annual run of NME Awards Shows. They will return to the UK throughout the summer, with slots at Rockness, Bestival and Parklife Weekender among their commitments.
