The Justice Vs Simian smash was released a decade ago
Sometimes a bit of news comes around that shakes you to your core, we've had a bit of a bonanza of it recently. We had Brexit, Cameron's resignation, Chilchot, but perhaps the most earth shattering new to come out of the past few weeks is this musical bombshell.
Justice Vs Simian - "We Are Your Friends" is ten years old today.
Just let that sink in for a moment.
That means it's been ten years since red skinny jeans, ten years since shutter shades, ten years since Skins parties. In the intervening decade Simian have gone on to become one of dance music's great re-inventors with Simian Mobile Disco, Justice are gearing up to release their third studio album and "We Are Your Friends" has become the sample de jour in the stadium EDM world.
Unfortunately, to a generation of youngsters the immortal line "We Are Your Friends" is more likely to invoke images of Zac Efron pretending to DJ to Emily Ratajkowski rather than french people crowdsurfing.
Even so, this track's place in music history is assured.
