After a long wait, The Juan MacLean return to DFA with a surprise new single “Can You Ever Really Know Somebody”, which marks their first release of original material since 2014’s excellent third album “In A Dream”. Bursting with deep house elastic bounce and electronic pop flourishes, “Can You Ever Really Know Somebody” is pure dancefloor fire! It’s brimming with the kind of disco-house goodness that we’ve come to expect from DFA mainstay John MacLean and Nancy Whang of LCD Soundsystem fame. This one will get some serious rotations this spring. Blast it above, exclusively on La.Ga.Sta.

The single “Can You Ever Really Know Somebody” comes backed with a great remix and a dub version from LA-4A, aka Ambivalent and legally known as American born producer Kevin McHugh. It’s a fitting companion to the original. The track is a taste of things to come, as The Juan Maclean prepares a new LP for DFA, which is expected to arrive in fall 2017.

“Can You Ever Really Know Somebody” is out now on digital streaming & limited 12” on DFA. Pick up your copy here.

After dropping their brilliant track “And The Sea” last summer, Los Angeles-based duo Poolside are finally back with a new single called “Everything Goes”. The cello-led track finds the duo of Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradise delivering something special, a “daytime disco” beauty. In their own words: “If you’ve seen us DJ the last few years, you’ve heard “Everything Goes” – we’ve played it in every set! We worked with a cellist on the song and it was fun trying something different. You guys are awesome, thank you for all of the support over the years. More new music soon”.

Norwegian disco god Todd Terje is back with a new Remix EP of his new, unreleased track “Jungelknugen” that will appear on his upcoming new album. The “Jungelknugen” EP is a two-track party platter packing spacious bassweight, astral jazz and abstract grooves from the minds of Four Tet and Prins Thomas. Taking the console for A-side manoeuvres, Kieran Hebden’s Four Tet scans the star maps and picks out a particularly jazzy path to a distant dance floor dimension. Over on the flip, Prins Thomas gets in on the action, rocking a retro-futurist remix which reps vintage R&S, Dutch electro and Sheffield bass on its way down the space techno highway. Stream both remixes above.

The “Jungelknugen (Four Tet & Prins Thomas Remixes)” is out now via Olsen Records.
Get it here.
