Can you play some more Minogue? By then, Williamsburg and neighboring Greenpoint were starting to usurp the East Village and Lower East Side as the coolest neighborhood in the five boroughs, laying groundwork for what would become one of the greatest bar scenes in American history. Back then it was mostly a neighborhood composed of older Eastern Europeans, many Polish, although twenty-something artists and entrepreneurial types had begun to cram into the cheap and often illegal lofts lacking public utilities. Pac-Man machine and an Attack from Mars pinball machine. Above the bar and its chalkboard menu touting the cheap cans of Tecate on offer, a DJ booth was placed like an altar.

The Juan MacLean (DJ set) + Jacques Renault | Nightlife in New York
It's an exhausted John MacLean that arrives to meet me in the low-lit lobby of a Shoreditch hotel. More compilation than album proper, it's a digital-only collection of rarities, unreleased material and remixes running all the way from the sort of big, pop-song oriented dance music you'd more readily associate with MacLean and DFA ever-building highlight 'Feel So Good' to odder excursions that, by his own admission, would sound out of place on one of his albums. The echo-drenched 'Deviant Device', for example, is dubby and slowed to a heartbeat's pace, allowed a full nine minutes to slowly unfurl. Try fitting that onto The Juan MacLean's last full-length, 's The Future Will Come , which set Nancy Whang's chanted, mantric vocals adrift across thick, rattling disco and house backdrops. Its highlight, and MacLean's best known track so far, 'Happy House' neatly summarised their approach in twelve-odd minutes of stargazing dancefloor manna: catchy, accessible pop songs, refracted through knowledge born of total immersion in dance music culture and history.
