I’m always down for a slamming dose of Justice, and the legendary French electro house duo just dropped a music video today (warning: NSFW) for Pleasure off of their 2016 album Woman. It’s directed by acclaimed artist/director Alexandre Courtès of Division, and it depicts two lovers intertwined in passion before becoming part of an abstract, cosmic explosion, leading to the birth of new life. In other words, we’re witness to a big bang to go along with banging Pleasure. Justice recently headlined the Glastonbury Festival’s West Holts Stage, where they premiered their new “The Church” live show, featuring groudn breaking and awe-inspiring production. They’ll be taking it on the road this fall with a handful of slots in Europe, the UK, and Los Angeles at Camp Flog Gnaw. I’m really hoping they’ll add some additional dates, like, say… one in San Francisco? Pleasure is available, here.

It’s a funky jouncing sort of soulful spunky pleasure that moves us on the latest original from Chicago’s GOLDHOUSE. The producer teamed up with dreamy LA crooner Lostboycrow on his last track, but he now links up with sultry voiced songbird Alexx Mack to spin us around with some frisky fun dance pop and electro. Pleasure is a steamy whirling, sky high bouncing banger brimming with swagger strutting charisma. The flashy jam is out on all digital outlets.

I’ve been a fan of Formation since I first encountered the London based duo through a share of their music by Shura on social media. As luck would have it, I ended up catching a set by the duo without planning to when I was in Austin for SXSW last month (I had no idea they were in town). I was at Hype Hotel for a showcase, and unbeknownst to me, La Blogotheque, a live music series I’ve been in love with for years, was in charge of curating an enclosed outdoors stage which featured Formation at the opportune moment I happened to be there. Though it was hard to see them through the glare of the box like apparatus they were performing from, they easily transfixed me, and the crowd around me, with their funky dance rock songs. Today, the duo on the rise released a music video for jaunty new single Pleasure, its fidgety foot work and shaky cinematics a fine fit for the restlessly strutting, tightly wound jam. Pleasure is a richly pounding thriller, a fervent and flushed spectacular. It also boasts plenty of cowbell, always a plus in my book.
