The Juan MacLean Share Video For "A Simple Design" And Announce Select Juan & Nancy DJ Dates

"could be the catchiest thing they've ever made." - Entertainment Weekly on "A Simple Design"

"'In a Dream' is great, indeed, managing to make its disco and new-wave influences sound entirely fresh and vital. Echoes of Love Unlimited Orchestra, New Order and especially mid-'80s Fleetwood Mac reverberate throughout" - The New York Times' T Magazine 

"In A Dream is undoubtedly the most confident and comfortable The Juan MacLean has sounded."  
The A.V. Club

"Musically, In A Dream is more varied and omnivorous than anything else the Juan Maclean has done before. There's plenty of old-school house in the drum-thumps and synth-streaks. Maclean and Whang are audiophiles in the James Murphy mold, so every single sound on the album has been burnished to perfection." - Stereogum [Album of the Week]

"The robotic pulses of acid, techno, and house rejuvenate the Human League moves of 'Here I Am' and the Italo-ebullience of 'Love Stops Here.' Through it all, MacLean's secret weapon remains former LCD vocalist Nancy Whang, whose icy delivery on emotionally drained cosmic-disco epics like 'A Place Called Space' proves she's human after all." - Rolling Stone

In support of the excellent new album, In A DreamThe Juan MacLean are sharing The Wildernessdirected-video for standout single, "A Simple Design." The Wilderness and The Juan MacLean previously worked together on the video for "Happy House."  Entertainment Weekly aptly describes "A Simple Design" in saying the visual counterpart "gives the song an organic abstract paint job that's as lush and satisfying as the song itself." Juan MacLean will be playing a bunch of DJ gigs over the next few months. Creative partner, Nancy Whang, will be joining him for many of these. A full list of dates is below.
