Riff: The Juan MacLean – “Feel Like Movin’”

Oct 3, 2013

So let your heart get crazy/And let your head get dizzy/Let yourself get busy, it’s easy/Put your feet on the dance floor, show me what you’re made of

from Feel Like Movin' lyrics by The Juan MacLean

The true test of an EDM track is to judge it sober, and this blows by its competition in house’s uber-repetitive subset of that musical drug den. “The perfect night to get away” escapism still doesn’t quite hold up for the entire nine-minute thump; it needs more change, at least for headphones.
