Justin Sane - Single/Video Review: It’s Not Over with Huz

14 May 2020 // A review by Corinne Rutherford

NZ electronic dance duo from Auckland, Justin Sane & Huz have recently released their brand new single It’s Not Over accompanied by a high energy bittersweet music video which is like an accelerated timeline of C-19 NZ Lockdown 2020.

Justin Sane has been around for a few years, a DJ from the UK; he immigrated to New Zealand in 2001 and exploded into the public eye in 2003 by being identified as one of the hottest young properties within the NZ hardhouse scene. Fast forward a few years and DJ/Producer Justin, met up with Songwriter/Vocalist Huz (from the Banditz) backstage at a party, and eventually formed the successful duo Totes!.

In the clutches of a global epidemic, many musicians have expressed themselves through their music. It’s Not Over, is a high energy electronic dance track full of hope and joy but portraying a strong message. Taking a glimpse at the loneliness within some bubbles but emerging out the other side “It’s not over; It’s time to live again”. Spreading good vibes globally.

This track has a nice clean beat with a tight polished sound, targeted at the wider International audience as well as close to home. This song and video shows a united front across the planet, with everyone in the same boat.

So as the bubble bursts in level two, this upbeat song comes in time to project positive energy out into the world. Just when we need them the most.

Rating: ( 5 / 5 )

About Justin Sane

Justin Sane is one of the hottest young properties within the NZ hardhouse scene having exploded himself into the public eye in 2003.

Originally from the UK, Justin began DJing in the summer of 1997 and has played all around the northwest of England. In 2000, Justin gained tri-weekly guest slots at The Palace Nightclub (Blackpool, UK) playing frequently to crowds as large as 2000+ with resident DJs Johnny Fresh and Devito, at one stage playing at the Miss Moneypenny's tour. He was also introduced to Planet 107FM pirate radio and began working initially as a guest and later with his own shows playing a mixture of Trance and Hardhouse.

Since emigrating over to New Zealand at the end of 2001, he has worked hard to get himself noticed by setting up and promotion N20, which has staged 3 solo events and 2 collaborations. Most recently, Nitro at Cube in September 2003 became the largest free hard dance event of the year with 15 DJs and 2 rooms, and had over 50m of queues of people waiting up to a reported 1.5 hours to get in.

Auckland based Cantabrian, disillusioned architect and sausage roll enthusiast Harry Platt who goes under the pseudonym Hazza Making Noise, has just released a new single called Boomers In Disguise.
