I'm always somewhat wary of record labels running series for the releases. Often they feel gimmicky and the marketing can often be a bit embarrassing. Not there aren't exceptions, there are some really exciting takes on the industry trope and Night Slugs ' 'Club Constructions' series is one such example. Beginning with L-Vis 19902s first volume, followed an effort from Lil Silva and the re-release to end all re-releases (KW Griff's 'Bring In The Katz'), the 'Club Constructions' EPs have been the talking point of critics and fans since it was first launched.

Label Love #1: NIGHT SLUGS Metrojolt is proud to present our new monthly series LABEL LOVE, a monthly installment we started to show our favorite music labels the love and respect that they deserve!! The labels we have chosen to kick things off with our new series are the one and only NIGHT SLUGS. First created in London in 2008 by DJs and producers Alex Sushon (aka. BOK BOK) and James Connolly (aka. L-Vis 1990), Night Slugs quickly racked up a squad of colorful and innovative producers that would play a vital role in [...]
Devenu au fil des années un label dominant au sein de la scéne bass music britannique, Night Slugs s'était lancé en 2010 dans la sortie de compilation regroupant différents morceaux d'artistes affiliés de prés ou de loin à leur rangs. Prévue précisément pour le 28 Janvier, la compilation Night Slugs Allstars Volume 2 va donc enfin voir le jour avec entre autre des titres inédits de la part de L-Vis 1990 , Egyptrixx , Kingdom ou encore le nouveau venu Morri$ . Prenant également des airs de best-of, on aura le [...]
Outside of two guys wearing robot helmets , there isn’t a more highly respected French duo than Justice . After dropping the Cross album in 2007, Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay took center stage in French electronic music, and with the release of Audio, Video, Disco in 2011 they further cemented their spot among the greats. It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from them, but now they’re back with the Helix EP, and all is good again! Helix is based off the single that shares [...]
The glitchy house of French duo Justice shines with an electro brilliance that is all their own, and their distinctively choppy beats are as fresh as ever.
Helix recieves a techno reworking...
Everything that Gesaffelstein touches turns to techno, really good techno. The release date has fallen perfectly on my birthday so naturally I'm going to be ecstatic and thank whichever gods (or record labels) responsible for this. This is an industrial piece of equipment and although it only resembles the original Helix in but a few ways it is a very good remix. All the signature Gesaffelstein trimmings are there so if you're a fan you won't be disappointed. Buy Justice's Helix EP on iTunes [...]
French producer Gesaffelstein has a dark, unique style that, to some, may be an acquired taste. If you are patient, though, and allow yourself to enter his trance, the reward is enormous. His latest reworking of the legendary Justice 's "Helix" is a great example of Gesaff's funky, filthy bass lines that dare you not to gig. Although it is just Monday, this progressive banger should help bring the weekend to your headphones a bit early. His sound also fits perfectly for inducing extreme focus while on the daily grind. This remix will be featured on Justice's [...]
Justice will release the next single from their 'Audio Video Disco' album tomorrow. 'Helix', is the third single to be taken from the album and is quite possibly the strongest release from the album thus far. You can now listen to the full extended original below. Now all we need is that Live CD. And if you only bought the digital version then you'll probably have never heard 'Presence' - shame on you.
Here's your biggest news of the day - a new release from Gesaffelstein. If you're wondering, "is this even a remix?", there's nothing wrong with that. He seems to have taken a one second sample from Justice's Helix and created his own brainchild electro shocker around it. Quite loud, very infectious, and pretty avant-garde in [...]
Little equals the fresh possibilities and excitement a new year brings for music fans. 2012 was a very good year for dance/electronic music, especially with the underground bass and house scene thriving while stadium DJs dominating stages that had once been the sole stomping grounds of rock bands in years past. The good news is that 2013 looks like it's going to be an even bigger and better year for our genre, with something on offer for every fan and DJ. Here we present an overview of 125 releases coming this year. Better buckle up because it's going to be [...]

The bosses of the crosses, or as we like to call them Justice, are prepping the next single to be taken from their second album 'Audio Video Disco'. 'Helix', which is out on January 12th via Ed Banger, comes with remixes from Parisian noise maker Gesaffelstein and Domenico Torti, as well as a new track 'Presence' which is almost certainly the hidden track from the CD version of the album. Anyway, both the remixes are pretty damn good, especially when you consider the original material doesn't exactly lend itself to dance music. Parisian unpronounceable Gesaffelstein, or Mike Levy [...]
An new name for one of Atlanta's less-hyped but undoubtably diverse selectors, Woodlawn . Having previously contributed mixes to Percussion Lab , and his own Heat ATL as Inferno is no stranger behind a set of decks. After taking most of 2012 off from focusing solely on music, he returns as Woodlawn with this mix announcing his upcoming Sweat Collective , additionally appearing at the Atlanta monthly Hunger, and will be playing again in January [...]
Holy smokes - Gesaffelstein has done it again! If there's one person who hasn't succumbed to any type of EDM standard, it's this guy. With each and every one of his releases, he continues to defy all odds with his brooding and unforgiving breed of techno. His remix to Justice's "Helix" has been on our radar since it popped up on live videos throughout YouTube - and today, we are finally treated to a decent quality preview ripped from French radio. Justice's original electro-rock anthem is stripped down and transformed into a completely new track. Gesaffelstein's rework borrows [...]
