[Indie-Dance/Disko] The Juan Maclean – A Simple Design

The Juan Maclean
A Simple Design

Some labels just manage to carry a weight with them when uttered: in that regardless of who or what is being released people take notice. So when anything from indie-dance imprint DFA bubbles to the surface, we tend to take notice. And what better way to revisit one of our favorite labels than with one of the cornerstones which helped solidify their status as indie icon; The Juan Maclean. The long time DFA staple is ready to release another full LP on September 16, In A Dream, and have brought with them the second single from the album in the form of “A Simple Design”. A moody groover which rides the line between new-wave and darker disko, the tune once again features full time The Juan Maclean member Nancy Whang (of LCD Soundsystem acclaim) front and center. Her effortless vocal stems glide throughout John Maclean’s expansive, spacey dance vibes like never before,¬†consummately fueling a hypnotic hip shaker of a melody. You can preorder¬†In A Dream¬†from iTunes, but for now we’ll be relishing in the beautiful dancefloor rumblings of “A Simple Design” to satiate our anticipation.
