Dave MacLean delivers an eclectic selection...

Django Django have always sought to draw on the widest, most diverse palette possible.

The band's hugely eclectic discography moves from psychotropic indie pop through to an all-out disco onslaught, touching on virtually every base in between.

New album 'Glowing In The Dark' lands on February 12th, and it's an inspired return from the four-piece.

Lead single 'Spirals' was a divine moment, while other highlights include a guest spot from Charlotte Gainsbourg on the regal 'Waking Up'.

Out next month, drummer and producer Dave MacLean trails the record in this exclusive mix for Clash.

Opening with a blast of French house from Mr Oizo, it's a dexterous affair, moving from rare groove to Portishead, 80s electro to Carl Craig, Funkadelic guru George Clinton through to the life-affirming glory of Hercules & Love Affair.

It's an absolute inspiration - dive in below.
