Juan MacLean's primary creative muse has always been equal parts Electro-Disco music and science fiction literature, mainly Philip K. Dick. Maclean's vision of modern life, when explored on his 2005 debut album Less Than Human, was viewed through similar paranoid eyes. MacLean was guitarist for the indie Dance-Punk band Six Finger Satellite, based in Providence, Rhode Island. The band was struck by several tragedies, and Maclean eventually moved into production duties, utilizing his home studio in Providence (nicknamed "The Parlor"). Eventually James Murphy joined the band as sound engineer (where he became known for a punishing tour PA setup, which he nicknamed "Death from Above"). 3 tracks. DFA Records. 2008.
