The Juan MacLean will mix the latest installment of DJ-Kicks on April 27. Included is a new Juan Maclean track, “Feel So Good,” featuring vocals from Nancy Whang and drumming from Jerry Fuchs, who passed away after falling from an elevator last November. The rest of the mix centers around classic house, including an Armando track from 1988 and remixes from Theo Parrish and Tood Terje, selected by frontman John MacLean.
“I’ve been wrestling with the idea: how much are you an artist, with your own aesthetic principles, and how much are you an entertainer? I’ve always found it interesting to grapple with those two ideas, rather than throw yourself in either direction,” said MacLean in a statement.
The long-running DJ mix on Berlin label !K7 most recently featured mixes from Chromeo and Booka Shade, as well as a much-publicized Burial mix that was indefinitely postponed.
