Justice's Gaspard Augé shares debut solo single "Force Majeure"

15 April 2021, 14:12 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Gaspard Augé, one half of Grammy-winning duo Justice, has released his first solo single "Force Majeure".

"Force Majeure" is the first solo outing from Augé, who is best known as one half of electronic duo Justice, and it also arrives as a first taster of his debut solo album Escapades.

The new dance anthem is accompanied by a music video shot in Turkey and directed by Filip Nilsson.

Augé says of the video, "We were really attracted by the epic visual appeal of cymbal making: bronze, fire, hammers - something almost mythological and elemental like Vulcan or the Nibelungen."

He adds, "We chose Bosphorus Cymbals because they had this very traditional process that barely changed in centuries, in this video i am just a link in the chain of production and quality control, after all these cymbals have been melted, hand hammered, and lathed into a musical object."

"Force Majeure" is out now on Ed Banger Records / Because Music. Gaspard Augé's debut solo album Escapades is yet to get a release date.
