The Justice Essential Mix you’ve been waiting for is here

BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix called it quits for 2016 over the weekend, and Pete Tong made sure the final show of the year went out with a bang by bringing in the big guns – Justice.

“We’ve been chasing them for years,” said Tong by way of introduction – and he’s not exaggerating, the last time the duo were in the DJ booth was way back in 2007. Happily, the duo’s return to the booth didn’t disappoint: over the two hours Justice moved from Frank Ocean to Prince to Gesafflestein to Pink Floyd, even throwing in some Tame Impala for good measure.

“We made this Essential Mix to show another side of the music that we love, and don’t really get to play in clubs or festivals,” the duo said. “It’s slow, moody and heavy. We hope you enjoy the ride.”

Their long awaited third album WOMAN was released last month after five years of silence. The duo have also just been announced for for next year’s Ultra Music Festival, where they’ll be making the US debut of their brand new live show. They’re also locked in for a show in Paris in December and a set at Colombia’s Festival Estereo Picnic in March; we’d wager the pair will announce full tour dates soon.
