“Welcome back intelligent dance music, we’ve missed you.”
Music OMH, February 2009
After releasing the much anticipated The Future Will Come (DFA Records), Juan MacLean and Nancy Whang take The Juan MacLean this spring. Juan, Nancy and band will be playing tracks live from The Future Will Come, which Filter magazine described as â€œperfectly orchestrated and directed to achieve maximum mood and dance-abilityâ€. If the weather doesnâ€™t make you sweat, your dance moves will.
With the critically lauded video for the song â€œOne Dayâ€, as well as the 12â€ of remixes by Mark Romboy, The Emperor Machine and Surkin, The Juan MacLean entered 2009 with huge success and praise, never coming down from the high that 2008 was.
The Juan MacLean is co-headlining the tour with Stockholmâ€™s Axel Willner, aka The Field (Kompakt). After breaking out of the â€œboy and his laptopâ€ mold following a tour with !!!, Willner teamed up with friends – percussionist/bass player Dan Enqvist and multi-instrumentalist Andreas SÃ¶derstrom (who also performs under the name Ass and also as a member of Taken By Trees, Pallin, and Tenniscoats) to see what they could accomplish playing together. Modernizing their kraut rock influences, The Field recorded Yesterday & Today, due out May 19 on Anti- Records.
Co-sponsored by Scion and Nooka Toys, this is one dance party you do not want to miss.
Speaking of Nooka Toys, The Juan MacLean will have their very own Nooka Nooka Toy designed by Mike Vadino, who also designed the album cover for The Future Will Come!
