RCRD OF THE DAY: Romy - Sleep (The Juan MacLean Remix)
At this point, we're calling The Juan MacLean DFA's resident professor of house. He is Farley Jackmaster Funk to James Murphy's Frankie Knuckles. Or something. Here, he's turned in another insistent, hammering remix, this time for rising Australian singer Romy and her single "Sleep." Is there a more appropriate hook for this than "Teach me / How to sleep / Because it's way past midnight / And I'm still on the dancefloor"? Dance music never beats around the bush and we love it for that.
