Defying all odds, the phenomenal video for Justice's breakout single "D.A.N.C.E." has been nominated for Video Of The Year at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards, taking place ...

Sunday, September 9th in Las Vegas. Justice join the company of Beyonce, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Amy Winehouse, and previous arch-nemesis Kanye West, who famously stormed the stage after losing to Justice at the 2006 MTV Europe Music Awards for Best Video.

The visually groundbreaking video for "D.A.N.C.E." pairs Justice's patented futurist disco with a rotating cast of vibrant t-shirt illustrations directed by Jonas & Francois of 75 and illustrated by Ed Banger art director So Me, and can be viewed on the MTV website at the link above.

Justice's innovative video for their first single "D.A.N.C.E." was added to MTV and MTV2 and their remix for Justin Timberlake is out August 14. Their next US begins October 7 in San Diego. Their Los Angeles stop at the Henry Fonda Theater sold out in less than two hours.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
