Juan MacLean’s DJ-KiCKS mix is a love letter to straight-up house music. It’s a driving, sweaty session thick with pumping keys, chunky drum-machine beats and chopped vocals. Recorded specifically for the mix, the Juan MacLean’s new single “Feel So Good” is a perfect distillation of that vibe.
That’s all copy-pasted, FYI.
