Search By Tag: The Juan Maclean

The Juan MacLean is the latest in a long line of great artist to do a DJ Kicks mix/compilation (the CD will be released on April 27th).

The good people at !K7 Records have given us one of the tracks for the mix as an exclusive stream (and you can sign up for a download here), the track in question is the simply fantastic new The Juan MacLean track “Feel So Good”. Already getting heavy spins at WMC from the likes of Cosmo Baker & others, it’s a safe bet that this one will be destroying dance floors near you for a long time to come. Featuring vocals from Nancy Whang and a drum loop from the late Jerry Fuchs, the upbeat and sweaty dance track embodies the spirit of Juan’s mix: a love of classic house music with an eye cast towards the future.

“I really wasn’t joking in the liner notes when I said that in the six months I knew I was going to do this mix, I spent most of the time agonizing over the relevance of doing a DJ mix in 2010,” says MacLean, a cheerful neurotic who’s clearly serious about his craft. “So much about DJ-ing has changed in the last 10 years. It seems that anyone at home can make their own mix, whether they’re a proper DJ or not. Which begs the question, why bother putting them out at this point?”

“So at the end of the day I just came back to where I had started, which was basically wanting to do something that was representative of where I’m coming from in producing my own music, and also focusing on the current house music scene.”

The Tremendous Records boss and Canadian native DJ Grandtheft sent this to me a while ago and I been sitting on it since then. So when I heard news on that his digital EP would soon get a release I thought of it again and decided it was to good not to share. It got that typical Grandtheft sound.
