A Simple Design is the latest epic (and we mean epic, another nearly eight minute opus) from DFA’er The Juan MacLean. Once again this one comes from his forthcoming new album, In A Dream, which is set for release next month. Alongside all those sweet vintage synths you also get frequent collaborator and fellow DFA crew Nancy Whang putting in some vocal work. Check out A Simple Design Below.
A Simple Design is anything but. A complex, multi-layered Cosmic Disco symphony as Whang, now pretty much a full time partner of The Juan MacLean, gives a New York Disco style performance, part SynthPop diva, part Post-Punk songstress, as waves of analog synths pop and glide around her. Add some skippy hi-hats to the mix, for added swing, and you’ve got an exciting, yet, thoughtful track that bodes extremely well for what the album might hold.
