saturday nite with… THE JUAN MACLEAN

John MacLean, better known by the stage name The Juan MacLean, is an American electronic musician. His relationship with music is a long and winding road… He started out as guitarist in the band Six Finger Satelite but, after several unfortunate events, decided to get out of the spotlight and move to production work. He then started a collaboration with James Murphy but the band broke off and Murphy moved to New York, where he founded the label DFA Records with Tim Goldsworthy and started the band LCD Soundsystem.

MacLean spent several years out of the music business, only occasionally releasing material under the pressing influence of his former band mate James Murphy, who included several Maclean compositions on DFA compilation records.

Finally in 2005, the first Juan MacLean full length was released, bearing the title Less Than Human, and a tour followed in the fall of 2006. It took two more years for new material to be released. “Happy House”, which would be included in the album The Future Will Come, came out in March 2008 and was supported by a tour with Australian band Cut Copy.

The Juan MacLean is on MySpace and you can also download their freshly released Remix EP on iTunes.
