Justin Warfield (born 20 April 1973) is a musician and hip hop emcee of African American and Russian-Romanian parentage, who is currently half of the darkwave duo She Wants Revenge. In 1993, he released a hip hop album titled My Field Trip to Planet 9, which featured production from Prince Paul and QDIII.
Justin Warfield is musically versatile, having been involved in most contemporary Western musical genres in one form or another during his career and seems to choose his projects based on personal interest rather than through career concerns. Instead of a hip hop follow-up to his debut, for example, he formed a psychedelic rock band that released one album, The Justin Warfield Supernaut. His projects seldom receive mainstream recognition and tend to baffle the majority but generate small isolated cult followings, because of the drastically differing stylistic choices between each project. In 1991, he had a hit single with the song "Season of the Vic," which reached #18 on the Billboard Hot Rap Singles chart.
He was a member of the group One-Inch Punch, which released its only LP, Tao of the One Inch Punch, on Hut Records in 1996. Now he is one half of the darkwave duo She Wants Revenge, a project different again from any of his previous incarnations. It is a deliberately caricatured, heavily electronic group that draws influence from bands such as Joy Division, New Order, Bauhaus, and Depeche Mode to more contemporary groups such as Interpol, and the Faint, cultivating a stylized visual identity in a contemporary analogue to Depeche Mode and the Cure.
His most commercially recognizable track is probably “Bug Powder Dust,” in which he was the vocalist of a Bomb the Bass release, and he was also featured on another track on its album Clear. He also appeared as a guest vocalist on the Placebo song "Spite & Malice" from its album Black Market Music, the The Crystal Method song "Kling to the Wreckage" on the album Divided by Night, and the Chemical Brothers' "Not Another Drugstore" from its single “Elektrobank.” Additionally, he has done remix work including a remix of "Joel" by the Boo Radleys from its 1995 single “It's Lulu.”
Justin Warfield also rhymes on the song "Candyman" by Cornershop, which was featured in the Nike commercial "Chalk" featuring Lebron James and Li'l Wayne.
Warfield has a large koi sleeve inked on his left forearm.
