“…The Juan Maclean have been tasked with remixing LA disco duo, De Lux’s single “875 Dollars” to make a funky song even funkier. The task may seem near impossible, but damnit they do just that.”
– Magnetic

“Flashes of the Talking Heads and New Order flood together with more conventional dance groups like Chic to form a fully formed and remarkably rich LP. “
– The 405

“Their Debut Album is too clever, almost supercilious in its mastery of the form. It is intricate, witty, inventive, dazzling in its detail, with melodies spiralling off of other melodies and little curlicues that lesser outfits would use as the basis for entire songs.”
– The Guardian

“…bringing back twinkling 80s avant-pop in a big way.”
– Noisey

Magnetic has premiered the Juan Maclean remix of De Lux’s new single “875 Dollars”. When talking about the remix De Lux said, “We’ve been a fan of Juan’s music for a while. To our ears, he has really really good taste in house and disco and he took our version of ‘875’ and made a simple minimal classy house track and added a darker tone. We blasted it through a big PA in our studio and turned off the lights. It’s perfect for a darker club atmosphere.”

Juan Maclean added, “This track reminded me quite a bit of the early days of DFA, I had some nostalgia sitting in the studio listening to it. It particularly reminded me of The Rapture, and I got to thinking about how much Chicago House was a big influence back then for everyone, and those guys playing lots of that stuff around the office. So I dug out my trusty TR 707 drum machine, the drums that House was built on, and the JX3P, a synth staple around the DFA studio, and tried to put myself back in those days.”

The original cut of “875 Dollars” will be featured on the duo’s forthcoming LP ‘More Disco Songs About Love’, out 1/19/2018 on Innovative Leisure.
