OG member of James Murphy's DFA crew, Juan MacLean's punchy house flavor always bring deep dancefloor vibes. The label's classic roster of artists consistently blend old with new, this record does just that with a certain pulse you won't want to miss. Crafted for the clubs of NYC, MacLean's uplifting style of house is made for a place without judgment. This two-sided single is a welcome return to everyone's favorite NYC dance/indie/live/whatever you want label.
As a long time friend of Murphy, the label, and LCD Soundsystem, MacLean's legacy is intertwined with the live-centric sound of the crew. Packing a psychedelic live show, project collaborator and LCDS singer Nancy Whang have redefined what it means to be a house music act. Somewhere between the DJ booth and drum set, The Juan MacLean is an experience in new wave.
DFA2602 is a funk-heavy disco tune aptly titled 'What Do You Feel Free About?'. Complete with gym class whistles and intermittent bongos, this track is a discotek dance classic. Anthemic vox by Nancy lead the dance in a blissfully retro way. The B-side packs a punch as Man Power takes a late night cut charged with heavy low-end heat.
