5 Killer Fleetwood Mac Remixes To Get You Through Your Day
Remember that moment you stumbled across a killer Fleetwood Mac remix on YouTube?
The feeling was like a mixture of old-flame love… reignited with some serious brush fire.
Really, there are some awesome DJ remixes that upgrade one of the greatest bands of all time and make them something even more amazing.
Well, well, well… we have one of the best said remixers – a DJ duo aptly named Fleetmac Wood – coming to the Casbah on Friday, July 21st and we couldn’t be more excited to hit the dance floor!
This DJ duo brings their disco, house and techno-Fleetwood to clubs and festivals all over the world. And we welcome their provisions to our fine city with open arms.
Oh, and we’ve got their top 5 remixes here just for you – with a commentary on each from the duo themselves. A little treat to get you through your day (as you order your tickets for the live event).
Go on, unleash that tapping foot underneath your desk.
1. ‘The Chain’ (Antenna Happy Acid Pit Stop mix)
“That killer bass line gets dipped in acid by UK producer Antenna Happy and is always a heady moment at our parties.”
2. ‘Dreams’ (Psychemagik Remix)
“Premiered at our first party in London in 2012, this delicate reworking exemplifies what we love about remixes done well. Stevie astral travels to a disco in an alternate universe and hugs the bass bin. Cosmic crystal visions ensue…”
3. ‘Silver Springs’ (Roxanne Roll Rework)
“A new one from us that is going down well at our Rumours Rave. Silver Springs famously never made the original vinyl and became a B side to Go Your Own Way. It’s one of our favorite Mac tracks, so we really wanted to keep the ethereal feel of the song intact whilst adding length and dance floor punctuation.”
4. ‘Gypsy’ (Twin Sun Edit)
“Gypsy is the perfect pop song and Twin Sun managed to add even more twinkly, disco dust with this edit. The build up really works to create that goose-bump moment with Stevie’s vocals.”
5. ‘Tusk’ (Smooth Sailing Edit)
“Tusk really is a real tribal stomp of a track and we wanted to accentuate the feelings of people power and wild energy by adding a crazed, drum break-down. See if you can pick where the extra drums came from? We really hope this makes Mick Fleetwood giggle if he ever hears it.”
