Issue Number 083
Justice’s endless drive to continually push the boundaries of their music and image has led to some iconic moments in their 15-year career. The unforgettable, gritty and powerful sound of their ‘Cross’ album, the raucousness of the blaring Marshall stacks in their sometimes-shocking movie ‘Across the Universe’, their work with ground-breaking directors in music videos like SoMe and Roman Gavras. Never ones to rest of their success, their latest project is a space opera like no other — IRIS shows the French duo perform their Grammy Award-winning album ‘Woman Worldwide’ with epic visuals and lighting. Read all about their approach to the movie from page 20, as well as their takes on artificial intelligence and how music is digested in 2019.
Elsewhere, arena-smashing bass star Illenium opens up about his addiction (p56), and we relive two decades of Spinnin’ Records, one of dance music’s biggest imprints, from page 46. We also explore dance music’s most pressing mental health issues, and look for some practical solutions from industry experts from page 70. We’ve also got chats with Jacques Greene, COYU, Trentmøller and Moon Boots, as well as all the latest releases rated. Join us next issue when we reveal the Number 1 DJ in the world – see you then!
