Juan Maclean

Juan MacLean is a Brooklyn based DJ and producer who has been a mainstay of the New York club scene, as well as maintaining a rigorous international touring schedule, since the release of his first records on the DFA record label in 2002. While maintaining residencies in various New York clubs over the years, Juan has graced the decks at legendary venues like Berlin's Panorama Bar, Tokyo's Womb, Sao Paulo's D-Edge, Lisbon's Luxe, Fabric of London, and countless others in between. He quickly established a reputation as an eclectic and adaptive DJ, utilizing years of music making and performance experience to develop a finely tuned sensitivity to quality selection and reading a room. Never much of a genre purist, Juan's sets can feature the gamut from Disco to House to some Techno, with detours into Electro or proto-House along the way, often in the same night. He has also produced an extensive catalog of 12"s and LP's, mostly for the record label established by his old friend James Murphy, DFA Records, including the seminal dance floor hit 'Happy House,' first released in 2009. In 2010 Juan was recruited restart the legendary !K7 DJ Kicks series which helped to spread House music to a wider audience on the cusp of the resurgence of House as a world wide phenomenon. It was selected as the #1 Essential mix by DJ Magazine for that year. Juan has also released on Classic Recording Company and New York City's Let's Play House. Most recently, in 2017, Juan released the latest EP of his Peach Melba project on the stalwart record label Classic Recording Company, an EP that was featured in the Traxxsource Top 10 techno chart and the Juno top 20 Deep House chart. He also released his latest The Juan MacLean 12" on DFA, 'Can You Ever Really Know Somebody,' the latest in a long line of dance floor hits featuring vocalist Nancy Whang. Additionally, Juan is always on call for remixes having mixed records by Daft Punk, Air, Yoko Ono, Lana Del Rey, Cerrone and Franz Ferdinand.

Marcus Marr

Marcus Marr is a London-based artist, producer and DJ. Marcus was introduced to dance music via all night parties under Brixton's St Matthews Church. The lifelong music obsessive augmented his already robust vinyl collection of rock and soul with acid house records. He then saw DJ Harvey play one of his legendary extended sets, and knew that dance music was his calling.

After signing to DFA Records, he released the acclaimed 2013 track "The Music" (#3 on the "Best Dance Tracks of 2013" list by SPIN Magazine) and 2015's "Brown Sauce." 2015 also saw Marcus release the Chet Faker collaboration EP "Work" on Detail Records. The 4 track EP featured the tracks 'Birthday Card' (Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 first play, #1 Hype Machine) and 'The Trouble With Us (#1 Hype Machine, #5 triple j hottest 100).

Marcus is now set to release new single "Rocketship" via DFA Records. The deep groove crowd favorite will be released May 11. Regarding the track Marcus says:

"Rocketship is a tune I've been playing out for a good while now. It always gets a good reaction. It started life as a guitar and bass groove that I put together in my studio here in London. Then it received the wisdom of Damian Drammaticus (the deep voice). Then I laid on the other elements.

John MacLean, aka The Juan MacLean is an American electronic musician. Maclean was guitarist for the indie electro-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 his band 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. His first full length album on the label, Less Than Human, was released in July 2005. Maclean is on an American tour in Fall 2006 in support of The DFA Remixes Chapter 2. On videos for "Give Me Every Little Thing" and "Tito's Way", MacLean is joined by tour drummer Jerry Fuchs. Other touring members include Eric Broucek and Nicholas Millhiser, and "Dance With Me" features vocalist Nancy Whang of LCD Soundsystem. The video for "Give Me Every Little Thing" was directed by Ben Dickenson of Waverly Films. The video for "Tito's Way" was directed by Adam Levite as Associates in Science.
