A couple weeks ago, we shared Justice’s captivating “Civilization” video by acclaimed French filmmaker/director, Edouard Salier (Massive Attack, Air, Raphael Saadiq, Tony Allen, Orishas). Film nerds rejoice as Salier shares his CGI methods and 3D animation techniques used to create “a real representation of his dreams” from scratch.

Justice bears a gift from their forthcoming album. Quite fitting, the “Civilization” video comes just in time to celebrate our survival of Armageddon. It features graphic sci-fi visuals showcasing crumbling mountains and herds of livestock complete with thunder sound-FX one time for ya mind. And you’d swear dude sings something about a minotaur. Awesome. Suggested weekend plans? Locking yourself in your bedroom and rocking the eff out to this joint on repeat. Eff yeah!

New Giant Step contributor Lily Kane ruminates on the worldwide pop star Uffie. Expect more from Lily in the future…

A new guilty pleasure in my life is Uffie, the American-born, Hong-Kong raised, cute-as-a-button electro chick. But the more I learn about her  (she’s been working with Steve Aoki and Ed Banger Records’ crew for a minute now), the less guilty I feel. Hell, I’m proud of it. I’d wear a hot neon Uffie T-shirt. Wanna fight about it?

The first time I heard Uffie, it was a while ago in some iPod DJ mix (I wanna say Girl Talk. Either that, or my cousin’s mix, it doesn’t matter.) The mix contained a bit of Uffie’s song “Hot Chick” with these fuck-off lyrics: ‘I’m like, hot chick that you can’t even touch / I’m like this cold-ass bitch and I ain’t ready to suck’. So obviously I loved this girl immediately. They’re questionable lyrics and I soon found out, as you will, that Uffie is just bursting with questionable lyrics. I would say this is a Level 1 on her personal Offensiveness Scale of 1-10. The lyrics, while always entertaining to me, are mostly idiotic, but the songs are perfect party anthems.
