Dancefloor: The Juan Maclean – Get Down (With My Love)


juan-maclean

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, New York’s electronic duo, The Juan MacLean have released this additively uplifting track. Get Down With My Love is a final part of a “dancefloor -trilogy”. The previous singles, You Are My Destiny and the ultra sunny and pop’y Feel Like Movin’ appeared last year. [NSA’s original post here]

Get Down (With My Love) is the closest thing to early house the guys released to the date. With the classic piano stabs, the high pitched vocal sample added to the duo’s signature driving rhythm section and Nancy Whang releasing her inner diva, the track is a proper dancefloor banger. Radio edit of the track is available for free at NPR’s website [link].

The release also comes with a good news, that the band are currently mixing their new album, which is set for release this summer.

Here’s further proof of The Juan Maclean’s brilliance.
