veteran nyc producer and dfa regular juan maclean hops on the rnt wagon for a rolling ep of drum-machine driven grooves for the reserve sub-imprint. the record starts with the peak-time stomper fine time, building exquisite tension and release through looped and filtered samples, and then moves on to the boogie-infused swing of dont stop for nothing. everybody clap leads off side b with a soulful and string-laden vocal over a bouncing hi-hat-focused house arrangement, and the ep closes out on the dubbier tip with the eponymous panic in fort greene park, a synthy and smooth slow burner. all around beautifully produced and eminently playable, señor maclean has made himself a most welcome addition to the razor-n-tape family with this dynamic ep

autofacs gonna be a new one to you, but the names behind it—juan maclean and marcus lambkin, a.k.a. shit robot—most certainly are not. the dfa house, disco, and techno veterans have long been friends, sharing bills around the world, vocalists on records, engineers on mixing boards. for a while now, they ve also been collaborating in the studio, and it s with tremendous honor that we get to be the label that presents the world with the fruits of their labors. souls on ice is a snarled, fierce, aggressive four-tracker, all of it recorded live, which gives it a distinct loopiness and patience. the ep starts off on a bumpin techno tip and slowly drifts towards a spacier, groovier house sound. charged and punchy, its the kind of dance floor kick in the pants only wizards like juan and marcus can deliver. key selling points. debut release by autofac, a production duo comprised of dfa veterans juan maclean and shit robot. full international press and dj promo campaign.
*in a dream* is the third album from the juan maclean. if anything, this new lp is further evidence of the *undeniable creative chemistry between house music wizard juan maclean and vocalist / former lcd soundsystem member nancy whang* (pitchfork). the album takes its musical cues from moroders munich to the funky nassau sounds of compass point and to anytime in downtown nyc. co-produced by nick millhiser (holy ghost!). the vinyl lp includes a download code.
attention: whole pressing has crackling noise in track d1 (the sun will never set on our love).
the juan maclean returns with get down (with my love) - part 3 in an alleged dance-floor trilogy that also includes the 2 singles released in 2013. you are my destiny & feel like movin were both instant classics and both were awarded best new track from pitchfork. both are still in heavy rotation
dfa is proud to announce a new split single featuring both the juan maclean and shit robot. the single highlights the warped and wonky piano house both acts have become famous for. the juan maclean track features long time vocalist nancy whang (also of lcd soundsystem), who helps deliver yet another wildly catchy dance floor anthem, in line with prior collaborative successes “happy house” and “you are my destiny.” shit robot brings in famed stand up comedian (and closet soul vocalist) reggie watts whose incredible voice glides from falsetto to baritone in a single verse. the combination of the deep bass lines, wild voice and piano stabs weaving in and out make this one of the strongest and unique singles in the shit robot catalog. both shit robot & the juan maclean have full length albums due in 2014 on dfa records. limited to 500 stamped and numbered copies, includes digital download code.
juan macleans new side project, peach melba! the constant citation of >chicago house and detroit techno< as influences has very nearly reduced both to empty signifiers. such vague and vacuous overuse ignores the distinct aesthetic and conceptual ideals of the actual music. that tendency to play fast and loose with the defining traits of late 80s and early 90 house and techno is one juan maclean has studiously avoided in his new side project, peach melba. built on tracks he felt were too >house-y< to be included amongst the more song-oriented singles on a proper the juan maclean release, peach melba is macleans vehicle for releasing a stream of upcoming dj friendly 12 inchs. the projects output is decidedly faithful to the blueprint of those aforementioned early productions, emphasizing rolling melodies and big vocal hooks.
while cultivating a reputation as one of las most exciting dj duos at parties like the legendary do-over and dam funks funkmophere, cosmic kids started working in the studio, completing remixes for friends like harvard bass. but it was their first original tune that landed them on throne of blood, backed by absolutely tremendous remixes from dear friends juan maclean, classixx and labelmates bicep.

that juan maclean is just a bundle of contradictions. here he has created one of the years best mix cds — and not just a proper party mix, which it certainly is, but even what you might call an important mix, a timely lesson in the enduring spirit of house music — and how does he choose to describe the process of putting it together? as an >existential tailspin<.
despite dfas disco pedigree, the juan macleans dj-kicks mix is a love letter to straight-up house music. its a driving, sweaty session thick with pumping keys, chunky drum-machine beats and chopped vocals, and it cuts confidently through the sweetest hour of dancefloor communion with filters billowing like sails. recorded specifically for the mix, the juan macleans new single >feel so good< is a perfect distillation of that vibe.
vhs or beta bring their classic lo-fi indie electro style to their remix of happy house. french house cult favorites chateau flight bring their own type of smooth and glitchy to their remix. on the b-side, will saul and mike monday give more cowbell and infectious soul to the remix
juan macleans happy house gets the remix treatment by lazaro casanova and paul woolford. lazaro casanova, former resident dj at revolver parties for many years, gives an afro-cuban flair to a thick techno style. paul woolfords apocalypse version is a quirky, noisome sizzler.
the juan macleans second album will be their first with happy house vocalist and lcd soundystem touring member nancy whang as a full time collaborator. nick millhiser and alex frankel, both halves of the ny disco duo holy ghost! also helped out, as did!!! drummer jerry fuchs. fully realized and flawlessly executed from start to finish, the future will come stands poised to disarm millions of listeners.
upfront white label copies of this huge new single from juan maclean - a full month ahead of general release! first come first served on these folks as we re likely to be very oversold on it! remix pressure from the mighty emperor machine & surkin, plus a super stripped down house interpretation from systematic head honcho marc romboy.
the catchiest new electro single to drop in a long time, this song has a bounce and funk that is rare in this scene and only a remix from beastie boy adam horowitz can out do juan in rhythm aka adrock gives it a slap bass electro reworking with robo voices and a timely early eighties thump. tg-3x is deep techno that climaxes to something both terrifying and beautiful, like classic detroit, minimal and emotional
