Since the turn of the 21st century, DFA club music maestro Juan MacLean has been laying groundwork. First, there were killer singles, from "By The Time I Get to Venus" in 2002, to international mega hit of 2008 "Happy House" as well as the "The Simple Life". There was a debut full-length (Less Than Human, 2005); remixes for colleagues like Air, Yoko Ono, Daft Punk, David Gahan, Franz Ferdinand; international tours with Cut Copy and Shocking Pinks, and DJ gigs from Telluride to Tel Aviv.

In April 2009 came the second album, The Future Will Come – a more pop inspired collaboration with DFA mainstay Nancy Whang. "In my career as The Juan MacLean, my guiding principle was to start out more dance-y and instrumental, and someday bow out making flat-out, three-and-a-half minute pop songs." As he puts it himself – The Future Will Come estimated this creative arc is at its midpoint.

The next stop on the journey was 2010's Juan MacLean DJ KiCKS mix CD. True to the series' standard, it was selected by DJ Magazine as the #1 essential mix of 2010. Juan's expert take on pure house music (re) introduced house to a new generation of dance music fans such that the genre's popularity has risen to new heights.

Last year DFA released a 12" under Juan's "house-de-plum" Peach Melba and a digital-only album called Everybody Get Close. It pulled together new unreleased material and remixes of The Juan MacLean songs by the likes of Cut Copy, Holmes Price and DFA's Jee Day.

The Berkeley welcome Juan to Glasgow for this rare DJ set… local hero Craig Moog will be setting the tone from 11PM. Get down early and give it every little thing!

The night is not to be missed with the tickets £7 on the door from 11pm to 3am, make sure you get yourself down. Check out this mix on soundcloud for a flavour of what to expect tomorrow night:

Going Out - Stay Fresh - BOK BOK / FAZE MIYAKE

Summer is almost over but the guys at Stay Fresh have thrown us one last party before the winter grind kicks in.

Stay Fresh residents Joshua & Greenman will be joined at the Art School from 11:00pm-3:00am by TOO NICE (Jon Phonics & DJ Milktray) and ASTRAL BLACK (J Leslie & DJ Heckter) in the Vic, and upstairs by two very special guest DJ sets from Rinse FM's BOK BOK and FAZE MIYAK.

- BOK BOK (Night Slugs, Rinse FM)

Bok Bok started to make his name on the underground scene around the time Grime music was first emerging. He joined forces with like-minded producer L-Vis 1990 to form Night Slugs club night in South London. Through these events and their DJ sets around Europe, the duo cultivated a unique sound and in 2010 launched as a record label. Since then NS has been a non-stop source of ambitious, cutting-edge music for the club, launching the careers of artists such as Mosca, Jam City and Girl Unit.

- FAZE MIYAKE (Rinse FM, Woofer Music)

"You can learn a lot about Faze Miyake’s attitude to music through his Rinse FM show. Like his own productions, which avoid sticking to any one genre, his selections stretch from grime and dubstep to trap, hip-hop and wiry electronic funk. Fat, bulbous sub-bass lines and blizzards of clicking hi-hats collide with frosty synth stabs, woozy G-funk melodies and the frantic chatter of MCs. It’s a thrilling, energising mix."

There is still standard advanced tickets available at RA Resident Advisor here or tickets will be £10 on the door. 

Have a listen for what to expect from tonight:
