The Juan Maclean returns with “Get Down (With My Love)” - part 3 in an alleged dance-floor trilogy that also includes the 2 singles released in 2013. “You Are My Destiny” & “Feel Like Movin’ were both instant classics and both were awarded Best New Track from Pitchfork. Both are still in heavy rotation.
But part 3 in this 4/4 Odyssey is here now, and it cannot be ignored, so make room for all of them in your playlists and record bags. A full length album by The Juan Maclean is being mixed now for a Summer 2014 release.
A quote from Juan regarding the making of the song:
“Some years ago I was working on the beginnings of my track 'Find A Way,' and I was at the DFA studio replacing my programmed parts with live instrumentation. I called in Alex Frankel to play my piano part on a real piano, and after he listened to it he said I had a penchant for creating what he dubbed 'Saloon House.' He thought it had a swinging sort of cowboy saloon feel and he rode around the control room of the studio riding an imaginary horse yelling 'GIDDY UP, YAHHHH.'
Get Down (With My Love) definitely has that same feel, particularly the bass line, which makes me laugh every time I hear it. It has a lot of swing, perfect for the sentiment expressed with Nancy's vocals. It's a sort of Saloon House Love Song.”
