Best known for: 
Justice vs Simian 'We Are Your Friends', their neon cross

The inclusion of Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay in the poll again is of course a testament to their popularity, even more so considering the relative lack of public domain activity in the past year - their DJing so far in 2010 has been limited to the 'Club 75' project alongside Busy P, Cassius and DJ Mehdi, and there's been a total absence of new material releases. In spite of this, the continuing massive support for Justice should come as no surprise. Their meteoric rise - from the 'failed competition entry to genuine international hit' of 'We Are Your Friends' through to establishing themselves as a genuine massive worldwide touring/DVD/live album outfit - has seen them consolidate the constituency of the noughties' dance/rock crossover movement by appealing as much to European clubbers, bedroom cool-kid bloggers and international stadium rock fans alike. One important part of one aspect of their image - be it carefully cultivated or classically stumbled upon - is that of the tried and tested rock-god 'us and them' artist/audience divide. The cross motif they use is obviously tongue-in-cheek and hasn't stopped them getting big in America, and it's certain that we haven't heard the last of this Gallic duo.
