Finally, The Juan MacLean's highly anticipated sophomore album. The Future Will Come, will be performed in London by the band presented by Magic and Medicine in association with Cargo.

Unabashedly emotional, both in lyrically and musically, it's difficult not to let each song take over your head and body, turning you into the dancing, breathing robot Juan MacLean and Nancy Whang (of LCD Soundsystem) With the help of DFA label mates Gerry Fuchs (formerly of !!!) and Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel (Holy Ghost!), The Future Will Come features both 2008 club hits, "The Simple Life" and "Happy House", along 8 other blessed out tracks that are sure to soothe your soul in these trying times.

If ever there was a musical act guaranteed to put a smile on your face, The Juan MacLean is it! In fact, so confident of their intent and ability to bring joy to the world, they actually called their latest dance jam "Happy House," which nobody could dispute. The track had music lovers and reviewers here and in the US "drooling like babies"( The Fader) and Pitchfork noting that the song's "dozen never-wasted minutes" were "happy and housey as all get out."

The Juan MacLean recently released a remix EP for "One Day" (available both digitally and on vinyl), featuring remixes by Mark Romboy, The Emperor Machine and Surkin.

And if you thought that was it... you would be very, very wrong!

The dance-punk enthusiasts at DFA Records, home to the likes of The Juan Maclean and Hercules and Love Affair will be staging their first official DFA Party since James Murphy (co-founder) curated Matter in Oct 2008. So you know what that means... that this is a night you definitely do not want to miss!

Marcus Lambkin, aka Shit Robot, (the name arose from Murphy's pretty shitty/poor attempt to draw a robot), will be heading the night with his signature acid house and electro beats. His new and much anticipated 12" vinyl ‘Simple Things (Work It Out)' has been embraced with much love from those at Boomkat and Phonica, who claim his ‘steady heart-throbbing bass line and array of startling acidic sounds is an elegant yet gritty array of synthetic genius.' Not bad for an ex-cabinet maker, eh?

Following will be the electro-tastic duo, Mock & Toof. Releasing ‘Underwater' last year with the DFA, the Tiny Sticks and M&T Inc. label founders unleashed a storm with this disco-pop track.

Further upholding the DFA disco to dance-punk policy, Jacques Renault will take to the decks one more time, mixing up his unique sound to the needs of his audience. It seems he's not just a pretty face...

And finally, Justin Miller will close the night with a seamless bout of tunes that will make you wish that everyday were a DFA PARTY!

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
