Insights: Juan Maclean

Politics of Dancing

A charismatic interview with DFA cohort, Juan Maclean, on his take of house music’s perception within the United States. Brings up some well worth notions of how sexuality plays a role within the contemporary dance music scene.

“It was a chance for straight guys to be into dance music without seeming gay.”

“I feel like I’m on a mission to make disco acceptable. I want to see if I can trick people into loving house music.”
