The Juan Maclean [Dfa] / Stiffed Disco says
THE JUAN MACLEAN [DFA RECORDS // DJ SET]

Juan Maclean was guitarist for the '90s Sub Pop punk band Six Finger Satellite, based in Providence, Rhode Island. The band was struck by several tragedies, and Maclean eventually moved into production duties, utilizing his home studio in Providence (nicknamed "The Parlor"). Eventually James Murphy joined the band as sound engineer (where he became known for a punishing tour PA setup, which he nicknamed "Death From Above"). Eventually the band broke up, and Maclean spent several years out of the music business, getting a degree at the University of Rhode Island and teaching English in New Hampshire. He continued a friendship with Murphy, who moved to New York City and founded influential dance-punk label DFA Records and started LCD Soundsystem. Murphy urged Maclean to get back into music, and got Maclean experimenting with modern electronic mixing equipment; DFA would include several Maclean compositions on compilation records. The dance world way too often privileges the new, and not many dance artists write albums as good as In A Dream, the third full-length album by The Juan MacLean, this far into their career. The Juan MacLean have weathered electroclash, disco-punk, electro-disco, techno, house, deep house, and whatever we can call the sound of today.
