The Juan MacLean+the Field


Dance music fans who’ve complained that club headliners go on too late should be thrilled by this pairing’s bizarrely early start time. DFA’s the Juan MacLean celebrate their new album, The Future Will Come, and its triumphant “Happy House,” which is just as it sounds. Kompakt’s the Field takes a subtler approach, taking the lessons of Gas and Seefeel—and the occasional soul sample—to create the sort of shimmering minimalism that’s crisp and fluffy at once.
