Justin Faust - La Fête

As you know we're huge fans of both Justin Faust and Discotexas. Justin celebrated getting OVER 9000 followers on Soundcloud this week (try tweeting "over 9000"). If you're not one of them, you should be ashamed. The new track, "La Fête", features an obscure sample from an early 70's song by Michel Fugain. According to the legend, the sample came to Justin when happening to hear it on the radio in a cab on the way to Lyon airport from a gig, and blown away asked the cabbie what it was. After thinking about it for 20 minutes straight, the driver finally remembered what it was. Now that's what I call a cool story bro. I'm sure Justin was drunk and a pain in the ass for the cabbie who had to have dispatch google it for him. Seeing he was on his way from the gig and all.

Anyway, "La Fête" is decidedly more intense than Justin's usual productions, which is a development I really like. And, according to Justin, so is the next one.

Here's the original. I like the dance moves in the video. I think, as an inside joke, everyone should dance like this when they hear Justin's song. I think he'd enjoy
