Published Jan 14, 2008After a magical 2007 that found them on the cover of Exclaim!'s December/January issue, Justice were preparing to start 2008 with a bang. Not only has a massive North American tour been announced that finds Xavier de Rosnay and Gaspard Auge stopping in Canada for three dates in March, but the duo were prepping their mix for the Fabriclive series. Well, not so fast on that last one. News broke late last week that the said compilation, which was supposed be entry number 37 in the catalog, was rejected by Fabric because "they weren't ready for something like this," said de Rosnay. Not ones to move on and forget their effort, Justice took the unwanted mix, printed up some clever sleeves and burned a limited number of copies for those on their Christmas card list. Needless to say, it's Fabric's loss and every Justice fan's gain. While the production team have yet to say whether their hard work will result in a commercial release, the mix is making the rounds and maybe, just maybe, if you search hard enough you'll be able to find yourself a copy on some friendly MP3 blog somewhere.
