In 2005, electronic mixing mastermind John "The Juan" MacLean joined forces with vocalist Nancy Whang to record debut album Less Than Human, which proved to make a substantial footprint in the disco house subgenre. The Juan's energetic beats disprove the common misconception that just anyone can create electronic music. When performing on stage, live vocals, bass, and drums are fused with a plethora of patches and loops. The group's on-stage charisma is contagious and brings even the most timid concert-goers to their feet.
The Juan MacLean performing "Happy House" live at the Double Door in Chicago on June 16th, 2009. This video is dedicated, in loving memory, to the late, great, Jerry Fuchs.
