The Juan Maclean
The Juan Maclean
The dance world way too often privileges the new, and not many dance artists write albums as good as In A Dream, the third full-length album by The Juan MacLean, this far into their career. The Juan MacLean have weathered electroclash, disco-punk, electro-disco, techno, house, deep house, and whatever we can call the sound of today. They never feel totally in step with the moment, but somehow always feel right and necessary. Put differently: there's always something exciting to say about the music, regardless of the release date.

His Making Time RADio show on XPN has won thousands of fans worldwide and has become a breaking ground for some of the biggest indie and dance music tracks of our time.

Greg D
Greg D. began DJing in 2009, and has played several cities since his start, including Philadelphia, NYC, Brooklyn, Denver, Boston and Washington, DC. He has performed on a number of bills with world-renowned DJs such as Greg Wilson, Dimitri From Paris, and Aeroplane. In Dec 2013, Greg made his international debut, playing Mayan Holidaze in Puerto Morelos, Mexico.

In 2011, Greg teamed up with friend and fellow DJ, Matt Crouse. Together, they formed Risky Disko. The collaboration has led to a number of releases including original tracks and remixes. Risky Disko also run a website and curate the Get Frisky mix series.

In 2012, Greg earned a residency at the Dolphin Tavern where Risky Disko currently hosts a monthly party, Try It Out. The monthly party has included guest DJs such as DFA's Juan MacLean, Hot Chip's Joe Goddard, and Les Professionnels. In 2013, Greg earned his second residency at Ortlieb's Lounge and hosts a weekly party called The Wet Boogie.

Greg D's records are romantic. He has dug long and hard to find vinyl that keeps his followers guessing. His sets span through a variety of genres, blending early funk and soul, jazz, and disco with classical movements, African drumming, and French movie soundtracks. He is a believer in the "anything goes" mentality. "DJing is not just about playing dance records, it's about creating a mood. If there is emotion, people will move..."
