The Juan Maclean return to DFA with a new album, entitled “The Brighter The Light”, a compilation LP of 12-inch singles they’ve amassed over the past six years – re-edited, re-mastered, and ready for fans who may have missed the tracks the first time around. From the dub house sway of 2013’s “You Are My Destiny” to the high-energy stomp of this May’s “Zone Non Linear,” and featuring two never-before-released tracks, “Quiet Magician” and “Pressure Danger,” The Juan Maclean once again justify their longevity as a musical force that is more than capable of repurposing club tracks for every setting.

Now, the record’s first single “Get Down (With My Love)” gets a remix treatment from Swedish producer HNNY, who has previously released on labels like Studio Barnhus and Let’s Play House as well as Puss, which he co-founded with Kornél Kovács. In his capable hands, the original track is transformed into something special. Blast it above.

The Juan Maclean’s “The Brighter The Light” LP arrives on September 20th via DFA Records. Get yourself a copy of HNNY’s remix here.

DFA stalwart The Juan Maclean makes a welcome return with his infectious new single “What Do You Feel Free About?”, which follows last year’s “The Brighter The Light”, a deep, piano-based club track. Featuring vocals from regular collaborator Nancy Whang, “What Do You Feel Free About?” is an electro-disco club track anchored by a relentlessly catchy, bouncing bass line. Rave whistles, cowbell breakdowns and handclaps further ensure the track’s place as a key song for the summertime. It comes backed with a fine remix by Man Power, who adds a touch more drama to the track. The Juan Maclean are currently at work on their fourth album.

“What Do You Feel Free About?” is out now on DFA Records. Get it here.

The Juan Maclean: “The Brighter The Light”

Back in August, we featured DJ Tennis’ killer remix of The Juan Maclean new single “The Brighter The Light”, as part of our “Late Summer” compilation Vol. 7. Now, we’ve finally got our hands on the original version of “The Brighter The Light”, a deep piano-based club tune that clocks in at eight minutes and finds Juan Maclean in such fine form.

“The Brighter The Light” emerged while Juan waits (somewhat) patiently in Brooklyn for Nancy Whang to return from touring with her ‘side gig’, LCD Soundsystem. Taking the tiniest splice of a demo vocal and sprinkling it throughout, Juan spun off the work being done for the next LP and created a new piece altogether, offering the smallest glimpse of what is to come, but ending up with something with a completely different purpose: his DJ set.

The Juan Maclean’s “The Brighter The Light” EP, which also features two fine remixes by Len Leise and Octo Octa, is out now on DFA. Buy it here.

Originally released in 2015 as a Japan-only 7inch exclusive on the iconic label Salsoul Records, his edit of The Salsoul Orchesta’s classic “Ooh I Love It (Love Break)” is now available for digital free download for first time ever.

04. Banks – Trainwreck (Turbotito Dub Reggae Remix)

Known for his work as one half of daytime disco duo Poolside, LA-based producer Filip Nikolic, aka Turbotito, keeps the summer vibes going on with his sun-drenched dub “Reggae” remix of “Trainwreck” by California singer Banks, a track taken from her recent second album “The Altar”. This superb dub version is pure summer vibes. What’s not to love?

05. Rabo & Snob – Zeshto

We’ve been following Tel Aviv-based veteran discoteers Rabo & Snob for a good while now, and it’s safe to say that the prolific duo of Ronen Sabo and Eyal Rob have never cease to amaze us. Specially made for our new compilation, the duo’s gorgeous new track “Zeshto” is yet another quality example of Rabo & Snob doing what they do best. This one will get some serious rotations on our car stereo. What a ride!

06. Soul Clap feat. Ebony Houston – Numb (Eli Escobar Dub)

New York house veteran Eli Escobar works his magic once again on “Numb”, the Ebony Houston-featuring funky tune from Boston’s finest Soul Clap. His dub version of “Numb”, one of the standout tracks from the duo’s recent second self-titled album, is pure dancefloor brilliance. That’s the way we like it.

07. Holy Ghost! – Crime Cutz (Cooper Saver Remix)

Los Angeles-based DJ/producer Cooper Saver, known for throwing the Far Away parties, mixtape series, and radio show on Dublab, delivers a groovy and funky disco-influenced remix of “Crime Cutz” by Holy Ghost!, the Brooklyn-based synth-dance duo of Alex Frankel and Nick Millhiser.

08. STATUE – Monument (Moscoman Remix)

Tel Aviv’s enfant terrible Moscoman turns his hand to “Monument”, a great tune from Melbourne’s live percussion-based dance project STATUE, the brainchild of drummer Tom Gould. The result is a percussive dancefloor odyssey. Taken from Statue’s recent four-track EP on Cut Copy’s Cutters Records.

10. Gemini Rising – Sunrise Boulevard

Let’s take a ride with “Sunrise Boulevard”, a brilliant track from Gemini Rising, a new side-project of German producer Tensnake with frequent vocal collaborator Fiora and producer Lester Mendez. Taken from their recent self-titled debut EP, a four-tracker of ’80s synth pop goodness. Just perfect for driving down the Pacific Coast Highway with the windows down.

11. Private Agenda – Texture

Our beloved Berlin disco/balearic outfit Private Agenda was kind enough to contribute to our compilation a brand-new track, entitled “Texture”, and it’s nothing short of pure brilliance. This delicious disco-infused pop tune is Private Agenda at their best! You can download this track, exclusively on our compilation.

12. Fatnotronic & Joutro Mundo – Bicho Ruim (Rework)

Tropical disco grooves from Brazil with love.
