After the pilot single “True Love”, released on the Belgrade Coffee
Shop Vol.3 album in summer 2003, the J.U.S.T. duo of Hana Vucicevic
and Boris Krstajic (formerly of Speed Limit), finally present their
debut album “Searching”.
Though clearly house in orientation, this album is unmistakably
dramatic. In the tracks like “Dance With Me” or “Searching” classic
dance patterns are shaped into superb pop arrangements. The balance
between a well calculated populist approach and a sharp sophistication
is apparent in the occasional twists of the genre – the down tempo
RnB adventure “Sexy Things” or the memorably rockish “Nobody Knows”.
Superior deep house moments like “Sunrise” and “You Can Do It”,
as well as a remix of the first single and title track, appropriately
complete this exceptional release.
Outgrowing the limits of the current domestic dance scene, “Searching”
demonstrates intriguing standards of production and maturity of
song-writing. Combining trademark vocals, guitar and percussion,
old-school synth sounds, deft programming and strict rhythmic structures,
with unique sensibility and skill of composition J.U.S.T. have created
arguably the first great album of the new era of dance music on
the local scene.
