Give Me Every Juan Maclean!
Yes, it's a bit late this Wednesday, but I had to wait for YouTube to upload a video I took at the Juan Maclean show this past Monday. Since I have a PC, and PCs blow more than the winds in Chicago, I lost the video for "Happy House". Thing is, my new camera stops recording at 10 minutes, and it wouldn't fit on one video! A wonderful thing, however. All wasn't lost, though. I got the following video. It's of their track "Give Me Every Little Thing". After the video, I have a little more in the way of goodness to give to you all from this very underrated and underappreciated DFA band.
I absolutely love that song, but I have to admit something. Cajmere - aka Green Velvet - made an absolutely ridiculous remix of this. DJs all over just beat that tune to death, and rightfully so. So here you go, boys and girls.

Pretty cool, huh? Yeah, I think so, also. They have a lot of cool stuff floating around, so I'd be lame to not tell you folks to go out and check them out. They have a rather recent single out that kicks just as much ass. It's the aforementioned "Happy House", and as a former DJ, I have to say I could squeeze this into a set and drop Full Intention's "(I Love) America" pretty easily right behind that. It's very reminiscent of the days of house when it was coming back up here in the US. You can judge for yourself!
And just to whet your appetite for some more music? Here's that Full Intention cut I just mentioned. An unbelievable and timeless track!
As always, if you enjoy what you hear, please buy it to support the artists!
